UN Praises Uganda’s Role In The Peace Mission In Somalia
The United Nations Under-Secretary for field support, Atul Khare, praised Uganda’s “unwavering commitment” to the African Union Peace-keeping Mission in Somalia (Amisom) despite delayed disbursement of monetary contributions by donors since last October.
Uganda, with more than 6,000 troops in Somalia, is the largest contributor to the 10-year-old AU-led mission.
Other contributors include Ethiopia, Kenya, Burundi, and Djibouti.
“I have assured your government that we are doing everything we can to have this problem addressed,” he added.
Mr. Khare later held a meeting with President Museveni.
