His Excellency Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, President of the Federal Republic of Somalia
Chair: Henry Bellingham MP



His Excellency President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud will discuss the priorities for the new Somali government. With regional and international partners committed to fighting the country's insurgency, there is optimism that Somalia can build on security gains already made.

The president will give his views on the country's political future, including building the legitimacy of the state, the role of the regions, and the need to bolster the rule of law and Somalia's armed forces. He will also consider how international engagement can best assist Somalia to build a more stable future.
