No more meetings in Nairobi, Mogadishu tells aid partners

Somalia is taking measures to reduce contact with Kenya amid an ongoing diplomatic row heightened by the move mid this month by authorities in Nairobi to deny entry top government officials.

The Ministry of Health Saturday notified aid partners in Nairobi to change venues of future meetings advising its staff would not be attending should they be held in the Kenyan capital.

“Due to the recent travel issues to Nairobi, Kenyan, the ministry informs all its partners that representatives from the ministry will not attend all planned and upcoming meetings, workshops, seminars and trainings to be held in Nairobi,” the Health Ministry said in a letter.

The Ministry urged that the meetings be held either within Somalia ‘or be moved to alternative countries for ease of travel to ministry representatives’.

The announcement follows reports that President Mohamed Farmaajo avoided the Kenyan airspace during his visit to South Africa Friday.

They already said this months ago but everyone ignored them.

From the Goobjoog article:
It is not clear however if the Federal Government has taken an official position to cancel meetings in Nairobi.

Somalia last year instructed Nairobi based international organisations to move into the country or risk denial of permits.
