Somalia Moves to Calm Diplomatic Tensions With Kenya

The Somali government has said it "regrets" Kenya's decision to instruct its ambassador to leave Kenya "without prior consultation" with the government of Somalia. The Kenyan government on the other hand says the move to recall its ambassador and chase Somali's envoy out of the country is the consequence of the "most regretful and egregious decision" by the federal government to "auction off" oil and gas blocks in Kenya territory.
