The British Ambassador to Somalia, Harriet Mathews, also sent a message of goodwill today to the government and people of Somalia on the occasion of the country’s 56th Independence Day.
Ms Mathews said:
It gives me great pleasure to wish you all my warmest greetings on your Independence Day. As the country celebrates, I encourage the Somali people to take stock of how far they have come and to celebrate what unifies them as a country. We will continue to work together in the year ahead, which will be critical for building a secure and stable Somalia.
