Mogadishu: Shaikh Sultan Bin Khalifa Al Nahyan, the President’s Advisor, has made a humanitarian visit to the Federal Republic of Somalia.

Shaikh Sultan met with Somali President Sharif Ahmad and Prime Minister Abdul Wali Mohammad Ali. He conveyed to President Sharif the greetings of President His Highness Shaikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan

Shaikh Sultan later toured the refugee camps and handed to Abdul Samad Mualim Mahmoud, Somalia’s Minister of Interior, medical aid from the Sultan Bin Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation for Scientific and Humanitarian Research. 

Shaikh Sultan said that the UAE, under the wise leadership of Shaikh Khalifa, will spare no effort to help people affected by drought and food shortage in the Horn of Africa region. 

Later, Shaikh Sultan also met Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who is also visiting the famine-hit country.
