The London Conference on Somalia February 23, 2012

The UK will host the London conference on Somalia on 23 February. We expect around 40 governments to attend, along with the United Nations, African Union, European Union, World Bank, the Inter-Governmental Authority for Development, the Organisation of Islamic Conference, and the League of Arab States.

Many expect to send their most senior representatives. We are also inviting representatives of Somalia’s Transitional Federal Institutions, as well as the Presidents of Somaliand, Puntland, Galmudug, and representatives of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah (ASWJ).

The international community hopes to agree a series of practical measures which will be published in the form of a communiqué at the end of the conference. Discussion will be arranged under seven headings:

Security: sustainable funding for the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM), and support for Somali security and justice sectors

Political Process: agreement to what should succeed the transitional institutions in Mogadishu in August 2012 and the establishment of a Joint Financial Management Board

Local Stability: a coordinated international package of support to Somalia’s regions

Counter-terrorism: renewed commitment to tackle collectively the terrorist threat emanating from Somalia

Piracy: breaking the piracy business model 

Humanitarian: renewed commitment to tackling Somalia’s humanitarian crisis

International coordination: agreement on improved international handling of Somalia issues.

    The UK could, with the help of Italy and France, re-unite the Somali Nation they divided into five parts in a federal system with rotating presidency and prime minister and with a centrally located new capital city, then set up a Horn Common Market in which all citizens could fish and farm for living instead of all the troubles there today for the whole world, Allah Willing.

    Hopefuly it will be very nice conference as it seems but so many questions were raised.
    1: Where entire Somali community invited?
    2:Why (Islaax) Muslim Brotherhood representatives didn’t invite?
