Somali Embassy In Kenya To Resume Operations Tommorow
Somalia will on Monday reopen its embassy in Kenya after nearly seven months of a diplomatic tiff between the two countries. Speaking to the media Somali Ambassador to Kenya Ahmed Nur Tarsan confirmed operations at the embassy will resume. "I would like to inform the Somali community that on Monday the embassy will resume its services,” ambassador Tarsan said. Somalia last month restored diplomatic ties with neighbouring Kenya after it severed relations in December. But just days later, Kenya decided to halt air traffic with Somalia, without giving a reason for the move. Kenya, however, later reversed that decision and announced it will reopen its airspace for flights to and from Somalia, a move welcomed by Mogadishu. The two countries have been at loggerheads in recent years over the maritime case and accusations by Somalia that Kenya was interfering with its internal affairs.
