Keating hails AU deal with Burundi over troop payment

The Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Somalia Michael Keating spoke about the Burundi’s threat to withdraw its troops serving with AMISOM from Somalia.

In a Twitter post, Mr Keating has welcomed deal between Burundi and the African Union  on Thursday on the long delayed payment of Burundian soldiers troops operating in Somalia.

The UN envoy Michael Keating has thanked African Union (AU) Commissioner for Peace and Security Smaïl Chergui for his efforts to satisfy Burundi to keep up Somalia operation.

Burundian peacekeepers in Somalia say they have not received their salaries for months as EU rejects sending money directly to Bujumbura, in response to the country’s political crisis.
