Uganda Threatens to Quit Somalia Peacekeeping Mission

Uganda is the latest East African country to threaten to withdraw Uganda's forces from the peacekeeping mission in Somalia if the United Nations insists on reducing the number of troops. The UN Security Council, in Resolution 2372 of 2017, proposed a phased drawdown of peacekeepers in with a full pullout by 2020 due to declining and irregular funding.
