  • UN Special Representative for Somalia appeals for calm in Sool

MOGADISHU, Somalia, December 1, 2013/African Press Organization (APO)/– The Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Somalia, Nicholas Kay, has expressed his deep concern at the recent outbreak of violence in the northern region of Sool.

“Violence cannot and will not resolve political issues. All those with a stake in the area must show calm and pursue reconciliation,” said SRSG Kay.

SRSG Kay deplored the loss of life and offered his condolences to the families of those killed in recent clashes.

“Political differences and competing claims should be solved by dialogue. Peace and stability are also critical to the Puntland election process”, he added.

SRSG Kay and UNSOM colleagues are in touch with regional leaders to urge restraint and offer support for dialogue and reconciliation.
