Djibouti Urged To Discuss Peace Plan With Somali Regional Leaders

Story Filed: Saturday, March 25, 2000 8:21 PM EST

Burao City (Somali Peace Rally, March 24, 2000) - The Somali Peace Rally (SPR) is deeply concerned about the rejections of the Djibouti Peace Initiatives by regional leaders of Somaliland, Puntland, and Bay and Bakol regions of Somalia. Such rejections could erode the confidence of Somali people, the government of Djibouti and of the international community who are now committed to achieving a sustainable peace impact in Somalia.

Therefore, the SPR call upon the government of Djibouti to start open and frank discussions with leaders of such regions on their raised concerns. Such discussions should focus on ways to move the Somali peace process forward at this critical point and to collectively bring the peace process to a successful conclusion, without undermining the position of Somali civil society in the peace process.

The SPR strongly urges that the meeting should begin soon and be in good faith, with the object of establishing lasting peace in Somalia and throughout the Horn of Africa. The SPR also urges Somali regional leaders to work towards peace building, to avoid another round of conflict, and to stay the course of dialogue and reconciliation in their country.

The SPR notes that majority of Somalis now reject violence and strongly embrace their support for stability in Somalia.

We call upon both Somali regional leaders and civil society to facilitate lasting peace to all their needy society. Peace in Somalia and in the region is now deeply needed. The SPR hopes that their leadership will help bring to an end to the civil war in Somalia.
