“We live in a world that is fragmented on one end and unequal on the other.

“Mr. President, our efforts over the past year have shown that if we are determined, and if we cooperate effectively with our partners and local communities, we would not leave a single stone for the terrorists to crawl under. Therefore, we call for the need to establish a similar approach in dealing with terrorism worldwide. We must guarantee the effective integration of local communities in a manner that protects their rights by offering justice and upholding the rule of law.”

“In the past years, Somalia has been the victim of a vicious cycle of prolonged droughts and destructive floods that have killed thousands and displaced millions.

Therefore, we call upon the international community to support us in addressing this urgent issue, and in bolstering our resilience in the face of climate change.”
