Somali president to visit United States
Somalia President Hassan Mohamud will visit the United States this week, his office announced on Sunday.
Mohamud, who was elected in September and will be making his first trip as president to the US, is being accompanied by Foreign Minister Fowziyo Yusuf Haji Adan.
The president will also meet with the large Somali community in the US, dpa reported.
The trip follows a recent tour Mohamud made around the Horn of Africa region as his nascent government, seeking to end two decades of instability and war in Somalia, tries to rebuild ties with neighbours.
