Somali president plans talks with parliament on possible ties with Israel
Earlier this year a diplomat close to Hassan Sheikh Mohamud said his reelection opened door to relations between Mogadishu and Jerusalem.
A spokesperson for Somalia’s president said on Saturday that the government is set to consult parliament on the possibility of establishing diplomatic relations with Israel, Hebrew media reported.
Reports by Channel 12 news and Kan news could not be immediately verified.
Somalia media reports last month claimed President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud recently held contact with Israeli officials while on a trip to the United Arab Emirates, even flying to Israel, according to one report. These reports were denied.
