Somali president to pay his 6th visit to Ethiopia

Somalia’s new president, Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo, is expected to visit Ethiopia on Wednesday following an official invitation from his Ethiopian counterpart Mulatu Teshome Wirtu last week.

During his two-day visit to Addis Ababa, President Farmajo will hold a much-anticipated meeting aimed at smoothing over decades of mistrust with President Mulatu Teshome and PM Hailemariam Desalegn.

President Farmajo who has been in the Villa Somalia office for three months paid five foreign visits to Saudi Arabia, Jordon, Kenya, UAE and Turkey before going to Addis Ababa today, Wednesday, May 3.

Ethiopia has large numbers of troops in Somalia, some of them serving with the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) helping the UN-backed Federal government in a long-running fight against Alshabab.
