8 November 2019

Somalia could provide valuable “lessons learned for other mission set ups”, according to the UN police commissioner there.

In New York for UN Police Week, Meinolf Schlotmann, Police Commissioner of the UN Assistance Mission in Somalia (UNSOM) said that the country is on “a very positive trajectory”.

He spoke of the close collaboration between UNSOM officers and their counterparts in the African Union Mission in the country (AMISOM), saying the two were working on the ground “shoulder-to-shoulder”.

He began by telling Liz Scaffidi about the current situation in Somalia.
