Kenya has welcomed a report of the Fact Finding Mission that was established to look into issues surrounding the diplomatic tension with Somalia.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs says the Fact Finding Mission, which visited both Nairobi and Mogadishu to establish facts of the matter, affirmed that allegations raised by Somalia against Kenya were unfounded and that the decision by Somalia to severe diplomatic ties with Kenya was uncalled for.
The Fact Finding Mission was established by President Ismaïl Omar Guelleh of Djibouti during the 38th Extraordinary Assembly of IGAD Heads of State and Government held on December 20, 2020, in Djibouti and which was attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
During the summit, the Federal Government of Somalia reiterated allegations against Kenya causing the Assembly to call for a verification of the allegations. Somalia accused Kenya of among other things alleged interference and violation of her territorial integrity.
