UN Security Council sets up UN Support Office in Somalia
Tuesday, November 10, 2015
UN Security Council on Monday adopted a resolution setting up UN Support Office in Somalia (UNSOS), to succeed the UN Support Office for AMISOM(UNSOA).
In view of the expansion of UNSOA's mission since its establishment in 2009, the council decided to set up its successor, UNSOS, which will provide support for UN Assistance Mission in Somalia (UNSOM) and the Somali National Army, in addition to UNSOA's previous principal client AMISOM.
The council acknowledged the positive contributions that UNSOA has made to supporting the gains made by the AMISOM and the UNSOM, said the resolution, adding the establishment of the UNSOS reflects the office's actual client base.
The council also requested AMISOM and the Somali National Army to ensure that "they give the utmost priority to securing key supply routes essential to improve the humanitarian situation in the most affected areas," it said.
The council will review UNSOS' mandate and decide whether to renew or revise it before May 30, 2016.
