H.H. Sheikh Sultan bin Khalifa Al Nahyan, the President's Advisor, has made a humanitarian visit to the Federal Republic of Somalia. He was accompanied by his wife Sheikha Sheikha bint Saif bin Mohammed al Nahyan, Sheikha Shaima bint Sultan bin Khalifa Al Nahyan and Hussein Mahmoud Mohammed, Somali Charge D'affaires.

Sheikh Sultan met with Somali President Sharif Sheikh Ahmed and Prime Minister Abdul Mawala Mohammed Ali. He conveyed to President Sharif greetings of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

Sheikh Sultan later toured the refugee camps and handed to Somali Interior Minister Abdul Samad Mualim Mahmoud medical aid from the Sultan bin Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation for Scientific and Humanitarian Research.

He said the UAE, under the wise leadership of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, will spare no effort to help people affected by drought and food shortage in the Horn of Africa region.

Sheikh Sultan also met Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan who is also visiting the famine-hit country. Erdogan arrived in Mogadishu on Friday to draw international attention to the crisis. Earlier this week, Turkey hosted a summit of Islamic countries to tackle the crisis and pledge aid. The UN estimates that over 12 million people across the region are now facing starvation. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
