A delegation led by Somalia’s Minister for Interior and Federal affairs, Abdi Mohamed Sabriye, is in Dhusamareb, the administrative capital of Galmudug regional state.

The Minister held talks with Galmudug Iranian backed Chief Minister and Ahlu Suna spiritual leader, Sheikh Mohamed Shakir, on Friday.

The meeting focused on the difference between the Federal Government in Mogadishu and Galmudug leadership that is deeply rooted in upcoming state elections.

Galmudug leader, Ahmed Duale Gelle Haaf, rejected to meet the visiting Interior Minister and his delegation for further discussions.

Statement by the Federal Government Interior Ministry on Thursday called upon Dhusamareeb based regional state to conduct elections before 4th July to strengthen the democratic process.
