Somalia has criticised Eritrea over the move by the United Nations Security Council to impose sanctions on the country.
Somalia’s ambassador Mohamed Ali Nur was reacting to claims by Eritrea’s ambassador to Kenya, Mr Salih Omar Abdu that members of the Security Council were coerced by the US into adopting a resolution which imposed an arms embargo and travel ban against Eritrea for aiding Somali militants.
The travel ban was imposed after Eritrea was accused of providing political, financial and logistical support to armed groups engaged in undermining peace and reconciliation in Somalia.
Speaking at the Somali Embassy in Nairobi, Mr Nur accused the Eritrean diplomat of lying to the world about their role in the Somali conflict.
Forced the passage
“No country forced the passage of Resolution 107. Indeed, 13 of 15 members of the UN Security council voted in favour
of the resolution, and one member abstained.
