MOGADISHU (Caasimada Online)–Somali PM Hassan Ali Khaire has held talks with the new UN Secretary-General’s special representative and Head of UN peacekeeping mission to Somalia, Nicholas Haysom in Mogadishu.

Somali PM Khaire says he had fruitful talks with newly appointed UN Secretary-General’s special representative to Somalia.

“We look forward to working in partnership with you as you begin your deployment”, he said.

UN envoy Nicholas Haysom says he had met with PM Khaire.

Haysom says he is pleasure to have talks with Somali PM, saying United Nations is committed to continue supporting Somalia.

Nicholas Haysom succeeded Michael Keating of Britain, after arriving Somali capital Mogadishu on Wednesday.
