In Pictures: New batch of UAE-trained soldiers graduate in Mogadishu

Over 400 Somali soldiers, including new batch of commandos have successfully completed a 6-month UAE military training in the capital, Mogadishu on Monday, April 10.

Somali defense minister Abdirashid Abdullahi, along with top government officials, diplomats attended the closing ceremony held in a UAE-funded Military Training Centre in Mogadishu.

In his address to the audience, the defense minister has thanked the government of the United Arab Emirates for its outstanding role in rebuilding the Somali National Army (SNA).

The new soldiers who completed the training courses were given certificate of honour.

Abdullahi encouraged the newly trained soldiers to execute their duties and fight against the Al Qaeda-linked Al shabaab militants threatening the country’s security and stability.

UAE has dramatically stepped up its unwavering assistance to Somalia, and had played a key role in the international anti famine campaign in the horn of Africa country in 2011.
