Somali PM Apologizes To UAE Goverment.
January 7, 2022 - Written by qoriadmin

Mogadishu – (QN24) – Somali Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble has today apologized to the UAE government for the April 2018 incident in which the Somali government confiscated money from Aden Adde International Airport.

Roble made the remarks in Mogadishu today, as he received a donation from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to help those affected by the drought.

The donation was handed over by Roble to the UAE Ambassador to Mogadishu Mohamed Al-Osmani.

Prime Minister Roble promised that the money in the hands of the government will be transferred to the UAE government as soon as possible.

Roble thanked the UAE government for its support to the Somali people and said it was committed to strengthening the long-standing ties between the two brotherly Countries.
In April 2018, the Somali government seized $ 9.6 million in cash from the UAE embassy in Mogadishu, prompting the UAE to suspend training for Somali forces, and relations between the two countries deteriorated.
The federal government said the money was intended to cause political unrest in the country, but the UAE claimed it was intended to pay the Somali military, part of which they were training at the time.
Roble’s move today, in which he apologized, signaled a new policy by the government, after Farmajo soured relations with the United Arab Emirates due to the war with Qatar.

The Somali government in April 2018 seized nearly $ 10 million in cash from a United Arab Emirates (UAE) plane at Mogadishu’s Aden Adde International Airport, which the UAE embassy in Mogadishu said was intended for the salaries of Somali soldiers. The UAE was training.

The Somali government at the time suspected that the money was destined for the Opposition.

Roble has met twice with the UAE ambassador to Mogadishu since taking office, and appears to be trying to improve relations with Abu Dhabi, which is important for Somali Business.
