UAE welcomes Somalia's roadmap

posted on 29/09/2013: 1578 views



Geneva: The UAE has expressed satisfaction with the significant steps made last year by Somalia as the country ended the transitional phase toward setting up a permanent and more representative and more popular government.

This came in the UAE's statement read out by Ambassador Obaid Salem Al Za'abi, the UAE Permanent Representative to the United Nations in Geneva, before the 24th Session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva, which discussed a report by the UN Independent Expert on the situation of human rights in Somalia.

Welcoming the Somali Prime Minister, Abdi Farah, the UAE representative said, "The UAE pins great hopes on the (two-year post-transition Human Rights) Roadmap prepared by the Somali government in coordination and consultation with the UN Independent Expert and all powers of the country, to administer the country in the post-transition phase so as to fend off internal conflicts, put an end to violence which has led to serious and extensive violations of the rights of underprivileged segments, women and children in particular, the spread of poverty and hunger, displacement as well as a flow of refugees in and outside Somalia." "The UAE and the UN Independent Expert share concerns about the Consolidated Appeal (CAP) 2013-2014 for Somalia which has raised only US$184 million (14%) of the targeted US$1.3 billion of funds," he added.

"Without having these resources Somalia will not be able to continue to implement development plans, and all the gains made recently will remain vulnerable and may be lost," according to the UAE diplomat.

Al Za'abi also expressed the UAE's appreciation of the legislative and legal reforms which would lead to the setting up of real federal institutions and back the rule of law, good governance, respect to human rights and the humanitarian law. He expresses hopes that the efforts being made by the Human Rights Council will keep pace with these reforms and help Somalia to achieve its legitimate goals. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
