Members of the United Nations Security Council Saturday will visit Cairo and meet with the Arab League Secretary- General to discuss latest developments in Somalia.
On Friday the members met with the Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta in the capital, Nairobi and urged the government not to forcibly evict refugees from a sprawling camp that is home to hundreds of thousands of Somalis.
President of the Security council, Egypt envoy Amr Aboulatta expressed deep concern regarding the Kenyan government decision to close the refugee camp known as Dadaab, which is often referred to as the world’s largest, amid allegations that some violent attacks on Kenya have been planned there.
In a statement Aboulatta told reporters that talks with the Kenyan government touched on terrorism and refugees issues with great focus on the closing Dadaab refugee camp, a step which would have grave consequences.
