We Agreed to Restore Good Relations with Kenya - Somali President

Somali President Mohamed Farmajo used his inaugural address at the UN to reject Kenya's call for talks on a maritime boundary dispute. Farmajo's remarks came after the two presidents were brought together by Egypt's President Abdelfattah al-Sisi on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly. Talking about the meeting, Farmajo said: "We agreed to restore our good relationships in strengthening diplomatic and political cooperation and leave the maritime dispute between the two countries to be resolved by the International Court of Justice."
