Somali Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation Abdirahman Duale Beyle and United Nations Special Representative for Somalia Nicholas Kay signed on Wednesday (February 26th) a bilateral agreement outlining the terms of future co-operation between the Somali government and the United Nations.

Extensive consultations between both parties with lawyers present produced an agreement attractive to both parties, Beyle said according to Somalia's Hiiraan Online.

"I would like to thank members of the committees from the UN and the Somali government. This agreement will help consolidate the co-operation between Somalia and the United Nations and we are very proud of it," said Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, who was present for the signing of the agreement.

Mohamud added that his government was fully committed to implementing the agreement.
