Ambassador Jerry Matjila: Security Council Briefing on situation in Somalia

We are concerned that the United Nations Trust Funds in support of AMISOM and the Somali security forces are seriously underfunded. This will have a negative impact on AMISOM and the Somali security forces pertaining to the provision by UNSOS of essential logistical support, training, mentoring and equipment to counter the threat of IEDs. We appeal for more contributions to these trust funds as the lack of funding may erode the gains made by Somalia as supported by the United Nations and African Union missions.
