Egypt Reiterates Keenness on Helping Realize Peace in Somalia

Egyptian Foreign Minister Amr Moussa said on Tuesday that his country is keen on helping realize peace and stability in Somalia.

Moussa made the remarks after receiving a report submitted by an Egyptian delegation that has visited Djibouti recently to clear the "misunderstandings" that had caused troubles to a Somali peace conference held there, Egypt's Middle East News Agency reported.

Egypt supports Djibouti's peace initiative aimed at realizing peace and national reconciliation in Somalia, Moussa said, adding that Cairo hopes to see normal life restored in the country.

Djiboutian officials have accused Egyptian Ambassador to Somalia Saleh Amin of disrupting Somali peace process by dissuading Somalia's influential faction leaders from attending the peace conference.

Somalia has been in division since Former President Siad Barre was toppled in 1991. Some 460 Somali representatives opened the reconciliation conference in Djibouti on May 2 in a bid to select 225 members for a proposed Interim National Council, which is designed to form a central government.
