Statements by the Spokesperson

The attack carried out by Al-Shabaab against the Halane base camp of the AU Mission in Somalia (AMISOM), within Mogadishu International Airport, is a stark reminder of the terrorist threat in Somalia.

We express our condolences to the victims and the families of those who have lost their lives.

The EU pays tribute to the troops and police of the AMISOM contributing countries for their support to Somalia. It will remain a staunch supporter of AMISOM and the Somali National Army (SNA) in their efforts to bring security and stability to the country. The EU also remains strongly committed to support the Somali people in rebuilding Somalia.
