19-06-2017, Djibouti (Djibouti): The Executive Secretary of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), Amb (Eng) Mahboub Maalim, who is closely following the recent developments between Djibouti and Eritrea after the withdrawal of Qatar's peace keeping forces from the border between the two countries, is highly concerned by this development and calls on both countries to apply utmost restraint in solving the matter.

Meanwhile, the Executive Secretary commends the prompt response of the Chairperson of the AU Commission who has appealed for calm and is ready to deploy a fact finding mission to the border between the two countries.

As IGAD believes that the situation should be addressed as quickly as possible, the Executive Secretary calls on the UN to support the AU in its efforts to get hold of the situation.

The Executive Secretary assures IGAD Secretariat's readiness to relentlessly work towards bringing peace between Djibouti and Eritrea.
