New York - Daily Nation reports the United Nations Security Council has been told by a high-ranking Somali official that her government does not want the African Union military mission in Somalia (Amisom) to be given a maritime component.
Kenya has long sought UN approval of about $10 million in funding for an Amisom maritime force since it is the only country that deployed naval forces in Somali waters.
Kenyan UN Ambassador Macharia Kamau said Somalia’s statement on Thursday of "strong opposition" to that request is disappointing.
