MOGADISHU (Horn Observer) The US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson spoke with the Somalia's president on the phone and affirmed Americaäs committment to Somalia, according to a statement released by the Somalia government on Tuesday.

The United States government has been supporting the Somalia security sector and recently aided Somali Special Forces to take out various Alshabab hideouts.

Mr. Tillerson said while speaking on the phone with the President of the Federal Republic of Somalia, H.E Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo and gave the assurance that the United States is fully in support of Somalia’s peace and stability efforts.

"Our top priority is security sector reform to ensure our security institutions are able and accountable. We need to embark on the fight against Alshabab with renewed urgency”  Mr. Tillerson added.


The US has in the past taken significant action against global terror networks, and has specifically been instrumental in the fight against Alshabab. Last month, US and Somali forces carried out a joint attack against an al-Shabab base, destroying one of the jihadi group's primary training and command centers.
