Mogadishu (HOL ) -The Somali cabinet has approved the appointment of the Accountant General of the Federal Government and several cooperation agreements with Qatar on Thursday.

Deputy Prime Minister Salah Ahmed Jama chaired the weekly meeting in Mogadishu. The Cabinet of Ministers approved the Ministry of Finance's proposal to appoint Abdirahman Mohamed Anas as the Accountant General. The ministry cited Anas's experience in Administration and Finance as a reason for his appointment.

The Council also approved several other agreements, including a joint administrative cooperation agreement to implement the Somalia and Qatar Customs Tax Law, a proposal to join the Arab Free Trade Area, and a Memorandum of Understanding on Cooperation on Justice and Constitutional Affairs between Somalia and Qatar.

The government emergency committee responsible for evacuating Somali citizens from Sudan briefed the Council on the situation of Somali citizens trapped in Sudan.
