Listen /

Hassan Sheik Mohamud, President of the Federal Republic of Somalia

Somali President Hassan Sheik Mohamud is calling for greater support from the international community to help the country’s forces and African Union troops battle the militant group Al-Shabaab.

While he said Al-Shabaab is "on the run," the President stressed that there needs to be a sustained global effort to defeat the terrorist group: ideologically, financially and socially.

President Mohamud is in New York for the UN General Assembly and UN Radio's Assumpta Massoi asked him if it is possible to fully stamp out terrorism.
