Prime Minister Roble in Djibouti for Guelleh's inauguration

Somalia Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble on Friday arrived in Djibouti to attend the inauguration ceremony of President Ismail Omar. Roble was received at Ambouli International Airport by Djibouti Prime Minister Mohamed Abdikadir Kamil. President Guelleh, 73, will be sworn in for his fifth-elective term of office. He was declared winner of the April elections with 97 per cent while his only opponent in the elections Zakaria Ismail Farah, obtained only a few thousand votes. Djibouti, bordering Somalia in the south and the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden in the east, is a small country in the Horn of Africa. The strategic country houses the US’ biggest military facility on the continent. China, Japan and France -- Djibouti's former colonial power -- also have military bases in the country.
