15th October 2017, Djibouti, Djibouti: The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) is horrified by the unspeakable twin terror attacks of yesterday 14th October 2017 in Mogadishu that claimed so many innocent lives.

In a condolence letter that the IGAD Executive Secretary, H.E. Amb (Eng.) Mahboub Maalim sent today to the President of the Federal Republic of Somalia, H.E. Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed, he expressed deep sympathy and heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims as well as to the people of Somalia, while wishing speedy recovery to the injured.

“I also wish to assure the Government and people of Somalia of IGAD’s full solidarity in these difficult circumstances and reiterate our readiness to support Somalia to combat terrorism through the existing regional and continental mechanisms,” the message continued.

Amb Maalim appealed to “the international community to renew its commitment to defeat terrorist groups, whose only agenda is to cause havoc, destruction and death, by providing the necessary support to the Somalia National Army (SNA) and the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM).”

The Executive Secretary concluded his condolence message by highlighting the necessity for “all political leaders to cast aside their differences and to stand united” and by urging them “to adhere to the respect for the institutions, constitution, laws, and customs” of the country.
