The successful conclusion of the talks between the leaders of the Federal Government of Somalia (FGS) and the Federal Member States (FMS) during their summit on 20-27 May in Mogadishu, Somalia, is an important step towards the holding of peaceful elections in line with the 17 September Agreement. In this regard, we welcome Prime Minister Roble’s endeavours pursuing constructive deliberations between the federal and regional leaderships. Elections should be held without delay. 

In the next steps of the process, it is key that all parties continue the constructive engagement refraining from violence or any actions derailing the process. The EU stands ready to continue our support.
