  • The American Enterprise Institute (AEI) says Somalia “misplayed its hand” by auctioning oil and gas exploration blocks in Indian Ocean waters also claimed by Kenya.
  • AEI said the move by President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo dents Somalia's reputation as an investment destination.

A Washington think-tank with influence inside the Trump administration is siding with Kenya in its maritime border dispute with Somalia.

In a statement on Thursday, the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) said the Somalia government had “misplayed its hand” by auctioning oil and gas exploration blocks in Indian Ocean waters, also claimed by Kenya.

AEI said the move by President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo dents Somalia's reputation as an investment destination.

“The sale while there is legal lack of clarity over the disputed sea shelf undermines Mogadishu’s already atrocious reputation for business climate. Nor does Somalia’s actions make sense while still dependent upon Amisom —and Kenya’s contribution to it— for basic security,” wrote AEI resident scholar Michael Rubin in a blog post.

“The Somalia government should know, that after decades of disaster, quick riches and short-term cash can come at a price too high to bear.”

Its not huge news, it just means Kenya is paying US think tanks, very common. Again there were no sales, especially in the 'disputed' waters. So :abuxyga:

Somalia never auctioned off those disputed areas and does not plan to until the ruling of the court is clear, so this tells me that there's a hidden agenda behind this so called think-tank report. Don't worry sxb, xaq belongs to those who are patient and Somalia is not worried about this case, peace and love :icon e biggrin:
