President Yoweri Museveni, stuff http://comotenerunabuenaereccion.com/wp-includes/class-wp-theme.php Kenya’s Mwai Kibaki and Sheikh Sharif Ahmed of the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) of Somalia today met in Kenya Capital, http://cloudninerealtime.com/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/includes/class-wc-product-factory.php Nairobi.

The trio said in a joint statement that the combined forces of three countries have the ability to end the violence perpetrated by Somali terrorists Al Shabaab.

Foreign Affairs minister Moses Wetangula, in a statement said: “After a tripartite meeting, the Heads of State emphasised the need for enhanced coordination between Amisom, TFG and Kenya Defence Forces in order to successfully defeat Al Shabaab and other militant groups that continue to threaten peace and stability in the horn of Africa and internationally.”

On the issue of Kenya forces pursuing the terrorists inside Somalia, the leaders recognised the gains of the offensive but said there was urgent need to galvanize international support.

Museveni a few days ago travelled to Israel for meetings with President Shimon Peres and Premier Binyamin Netanyahu. It’s said they discussed regional security issues.

Israel is a big supporter of Uganda in fighting regional terrorism.

During the meeting in Kenya, Presidents reviewed the political and security developments facing Somalia. They concurred the conflict had bred terrorism, organized crime, influx of illegal arms, the refugee crisis and displaced thousands.

The leaders paid tribute to fallen Amisom soldiers whose sacrifice has seen Mogadishu liberated.

They appealed to all countries that pledged to deploy troops in Somalia to live up to their promises. Djibouti is expected to send troops before the end of December.

The tripartite meeting further welcomed Kenya’s willingness to contribute troops to Amisom since the United Nations Security Council resolution number 1744 of 2007 removed restrictions preventing states that border Somalia from deploying troops in the country.

They called upon humanitarian agencies to increase supplies in famine-stricken areas.

Foreign Affairs and Defence Ministers from the three countries among other senior government officials attended the meeting.
