Nairobi, 23 October 2009 – Somalia’s Prime Minister, Omar Abdirashid Ali Sharmarke, the UN Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs, Lynn Pascoe, and the UN Special Representative for Somalia, Ahmedou Ould-Abdallah, have called for an urgent increase in international support for Somalia. Opening the first meeting of the newly constituted High Level Committee, the Somali Prime Minister said the Government was working to provide basic services and reach out to moderate political groups and individuals, but required the continued backing of the international community. This was echoed by Mr Pascoe, who was in Nairobi to discuss both Kenya and Somalia. He has also visited Angola, Burundi, South Africa and Uganda on his tour of Africa.
