STORY
Somalia has today taken another step towards establishing inclusive federal
states key to the country’s political processes,
 with warring factions in the South West regions of Somalia reaching an interim agreement. Under the agreement negotiated by the Federal Government of Somalia, representatives of the South-west 6 Group and South-West 3 Group agreed to
 
form an interim administration for the 3 regions of Bay, Bakool and Lower Shabelle. The interim administration is to be established within 30 days and the parties agreed to respect the Addis Ababa accord that established the Interim Administration of Juba in August 2013. Speaking after the agreement was signed today, Hon. Lydia Wanyoto Mutende, Deputy Special Representative of the Chairperson of the African Union Commission (SRCC) emphasized the importance of the ceremony, noting that AMISOM is proud to facilitate an environment where the Somali people can engage peacefully.
“The signing of today is very significant for the African Union but also for
AMISOM who are on the ground in Somalia to provide as our mandate a conducive environment for the Somali people themselves
to negotiate,” she said.
 The Somali President H.E Hassan Sheikh Mohamoud stressed that tolerance and the engagement among the Somali people are factors towards ensuring unity and lasting peace.
“Today is the culmination of negotiations based on goodwill.

“It is absolutely key that interim regional administrations be set up by the end of
the year if we want to bring the country to election in 2016, hence the
importance of this agreement,” said Philippe Lazzarini, the Deputy Special
Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Somalia. For the leaders of the South West regions, reaching such an agreement without shedding blood was a historic milestone.
“We have formed this administration and from day 1, we have been calling
on the Federal Government of Somalia and the international community to accept and recognize this administration and finally we have reached that agreement today. We have reached an interim agreement with the United Nations, with the Somali government and as well as supported by the whole international community as we have seen today. Today is a historic day and I am really happy to be part of this historic day and it will be written again and again the day we
started negotiations peacefully without shedding blood,” said Mohamed Haji
Abdinur, SW3 Representative. The SW6 Representative Abdifatah Mohamed added that the signing of the agreement today, would allow for peace to prevail in the region.
