    During a two-day visit to Mogadishu, Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud met with Burundi’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Albert Shingiro.

    President Hassan Sheikh received a message and greetings from Burundi President Évariste Ndayishimiye through Shingiro.

    The minister congratulated the Somali administration on its recent victories in the fight against Al-Shabaab and emphasized his country’s support for the Somali people and government.

    In response, President Hassan Sheikh reiterated his administration’s intention to improve bilateral relations and cooperation.

    Burundi is one of the countries sending troops to the African Union Transition Mission in Somalia (ATMIS), which is now analyzing and assessing its performance in the region.

    On April 24, 2023, the African Union Commission, ATMIS Mission Headquarters, and other Troop Contributing Countries, including Djibouti, Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda, and Somalia, as well as officials from international partners, convened in Kampala, Uganda.

    The meeting’s goal is to examine the Somali Security Forces’ readiness to take over security responsibilities from African Union soldiers, including force generation and logistical assistance.
