Collaborative Efforts: ATMIS and UN Vow to Facilitate Smooth Security Transition in Somalia

The African Union Transition Mission in Somalia (ATMIS) and the United Nations express unwavering dedication to fostering enduring peace in the nation.

Issuing separate statements during Eid al-Fitr festivities in Mogadishu, ATMIS and the UN affirm their commitment to collaborating with Somalia and all stakeholders to ensure a successful transition process.

ATMIS pledges continued collaboration with the Somali government and partners to secure lasting peace, security, and prosperity in the country, while also praying for an end to the prolonged suffering endured by the Somali people.

Catriona Laing, the UN Special Representative for Somalia, reaffirms her ongoing support for the government and its allies in advancing peace and stability across Somalia.

ATMIS initiated troop withdrawals from Somalia in 2023 in accordance with a UN Security Council resolution, marking a significant step in the transition process.

The completion of the first and second phases of troop withdrawals by ATMIS, totaling 5,000 troops, and the handover of 13 military bases to the Somali Security Forces signifies progress in the transition efforts.

An additional 4,000 troops are slated for withdrawal by the end of June, further advancing the transition process and paving the way for greater Somali ownership of security responsibilities.

During Eid al-Fitr celebrations, ATMIS and the UN underscore their joint commitment to supporting Somalia’s transition towards self-sufficiency in security matters.

ATMIS reiterates its dedication to working closely with the Somali government and international partners to ensure a smooth and successful transition process, fostering enduring stability and prosperity.

As ATMIS progresses with troop withdrawals, Somalia’s Security Forces are poised to assume greater responsibility for safeguarding the nation’s security, signaling a significant milestone in Somalia’s journey towards peace and stability.
