Ethiopian Delegation to Visit SomaliaIsmael Hurreh Bubah, foreign minister of Somali Transitional government, said Saturday that a high level delegation of Ethiopia is expected to visit Somalia's capital Mogadishu within 15 days to continue the dialogue between the two countries.
Bubah said Somalia is not adverse to Ethiopia, carrying out its discussion with it because "it is all part of the reconciliation and peace process."
"It was further agreed that the Arta peace process needs to be completed, and all endeavors shall be based on the outcome of the Arta peace process and the resolution of the eighth IGAD (Inter- Governmental Authority on Development) summit of heads of state and government on Somalia held in Khartoum on November 23, 2000," said Bubah at a press conference here.
Budah, member of a visiting Somali delegation headed by Deputy Prime Minister Osman Jamal, said: "Ethiopia is open to everyone, and many Somalis come into Addis Ababa and discuss matters with Ethiopians."
The nine-member Somali delegation, which arrived here on Wednesday for a five-day visit to Ethiopia, has held extensive discussions with the Ethiopian government on the peace process in Somalia and matters of mutual concern.
The delegation is expected to leave Addis Ababa on Sunday.
The Somali peace conference was held in Arta, Djibouti, last year.
