Somalia's President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud has urged the United Nations (UN) to lift the arms embargo that has been in place for over three decades, In 1992, the United States and the Security Council imposed an economic, commercial, financial and arms embargo against Somalia which continues to this day.
- Let me state clearly that Somalia of 2023 is not Somalia of 1992,” Mr Hassan told the Security Council.
I second that Somalia of 2023 is not Somalia of 1992, the United States of 2023 is also not the United States of 1992, Today, the United States is in terminal decline, It has lost the leverage it once had to pressure poor countries politically and economically.
They have no choice but to lift all sanctions against Somalia.
