“IGAD welcomes the proposed initiative to reopen dialogue among the Somali stakeholders to resolve the ongoing political impasse. Dialogue is an important process that provides space for confidence and trust building, and, is an essential prerequisite for comprehensive settlement of all outstanding issues.”


The statement issued by the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) on the current situation in Somalia reads as follows:

“IGAD encourages all stakeholders to give the new initiative a chance, and re-engage in an open, frank and constructive dialogue in the best interest of the people of Somalia and with a view to unlocking the political stalement. IGAD reiterates that dialogue remains the best option for national cohesion, inclusive politics, peace building, reconciliation, human security and stability.

IGAD strongly urges all Somali leaders to exercise maximum restraint and refrain from any actions that will further escalate tensions or lead to confrontation; and in this regard, calls upon all stakeholders to priorities dialogue in their political aspiration.
