EU Launches Program To Support Political Stabilization in Somalia

The European Union has launched a program aimed at supporting political stabilization and reconciliation in Somalia.

The rapid nationwide stabilization program, which runs for 18 months, will contribute to rebuilding crucial government infrastructure, such as police posts and stations, and installation of solar streetlights in the newly liberated areas, the EU said in a statement on Thursday.

The program will rehabilitate damaged water infrastructure, including boreholes, nature-based water catchments, and other water-related activities in response to reported damage caused by al-Shabab attacks, said the EU, noting that the program will also enhance peacebuilding in newly liberated areas.

“We are delighted to launch this program and to contribute towards political stabilization and reconciliation in Somalia. We are confident that this program will help the government establish services to the people,” said Tiina Intelmann, the ambassador of the EU to Somalia.

Minister of Interior, Federal Affairs and Reconciliation of Somalia Ahmed Fiqi welcomed this program. “We fully support this program and its ability to foster overall stabilization within Somalia,” Fiqi was quoted as saying in the statement.
