MOGADISHU [SMN] – Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud arrived in Djibouti on Saturday shortly after wrapping up a one-day Kenya trip.


He received a warm welcome at the airport by President Ismail Omar Guelleh and was escorted to the presidential palace, where they held a meeting.

This is the 5th overseas trip by Hassan Sheikh Mohamud since his election on May 15. He visited UAE, Turkey, Eritrea, and Kenya.
