Iran seeks to restore diplomatic ties with Somalia

MOGADISHU, Somalia – Iran is likely seeking to restore its diplomatic ties with Somalia, after Tehran has deported 13 Somali nationals, who served several years in jails for piracy allegations.

In a stamen by Iran’s Justice Ministry said 13 Somali citizens held in Iran’s Evin Prison are expected to return to Mogadishu.

The Ministry made the announcement to release the prisoners in Nov last year in honor of the birth of prophet Muhammad (PBUH) but arrangements for their return has just been completed.

The statement said the Somali nationals convicted in Iranian courts for being involved in piracy.

Iran is holding in its prisons about 60 Somali prisoners, most of them fishermen and some pirate suspects, reports said.

Experts believe illegal Fishing by countries like Iran and China played a part in the emergence of piracy.

Iranian boats regularly violate Somali territorial waters, according to experts.

The Iran is “unlikely” to lead to restoration of diplomatic ties with Somalia.

Somalia cut ties with Iran in 2016 for “meddling” internal affairs but some diplomats said at the time Somalia decision was influenced by Saudi Arabia.

Iran are stealing our fish and helping fund the illegal charcoal trade. Even that aside, I don't see how they're worth the plane trip. They're not a country that can replace Saudi/UAE in trade.
That is Ambassador Awliyo former Ambassador to Senegal (don't laugh).

It was a private initiate of his where he graveled a dozen times up to 8 I believe to release Somali prisoners.

He made contact with someone he knew back from London and travelled to Iran and Iraq I believe to secure said prisoners release.
