August 28, 2018 (KHARTOUM) - The head of the Sudanese intelligence
and security services Salah Gosh is visiting Mogadishu for talks with
his Somali counterpart.
Different Somali media reported Gosh’s arrival in the Somali capital on Monday in a short visit for the horn of Africa country.
In Khartoum, the Sudanese authorities or official media didn’t announce the visit.
The different Somali media outlets that reported the visit said the
Sudanese official would discuss the Qatari funded training of Somali
security and intelligence agents.
The Somali government was formed after a long UN-backed process to
end the war, reunify and rebuild the centralized authority which had
collapsed in 1991.
The Somali government is also fighting the Islamic extremist rebels
Al-Shabaab who continue to carry out attacks across the country in a bid
to weaken the state regular forces.
