President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud has on Wednesday held a meeting with the Ambassador of Saudi Arabia to Somalia Ahmed bin Mohamed Al- Muwallad. The Ambassador congratulated President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud for his election victory on May 15. Muwallad assured of the support of the Saudi government in working and collaborating with the new regime and furthering the diplomatic relations between the two countries. Mr. Al- Muwallad is the second Ambassador to Somalia since the collapse of the central government of Somalia in 1991 after the outbreak of civil war in the Horn of Africa Nation. He had submitted his credentials to President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo early this year. Mohamud Abdi - Kani presented his credentials to President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud in 2017 before the assumption of office by President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo. The President elect continues to receive and meet with foreign diplomats and representatives of the international community in Mogadishu. Mohamud is set to assume office next week and will take over the reins of power from outgoing President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo.
