DJIBOUTI, (Horn Observer) The Ministries of Telecommunication and Posts of Somalia and Djibouti agreed to strengthen bilateral cooperation on areas of Posts and Telecommunication, officials said
The ministers of posts and telecommunications of Somalia and Djibouti Ashur Hassan and Abdi Youssouf Sougueh agreed  to promote and strengthen the cooperation between the ministries in number of areas, such as: regional inter-connectivity, terrestrial optical fiber, cyber security, ICT regulations, cross border signals issues, spectrum management and numbering plan, according to a statement from Somalia’s Ministry of Posts.

The agreement follows after Somalia Minister of Posts recently paid a four day official visit to Djibouti.


"Recalling the submarine cable cut near Mogadishu landing station that severed international connectivity to a large geographic area in Somalia, the two ministries recognize the need for at least an additional submarine optical cable connection to Somalia.” Statement from the Somali ministry of posts said,  "The two ministries agreed in principle to renew and move forward with the discussions Somali and Djibouti governments and Somali telecommunication carriers and Djibouti Telecom on the Djibouti African Regional Express (DARE) cable, which will connect Djibouti and Mombasa with many landing stations in Somalia.”

"To act proactively we need to move forward with the discussions of another cable. And Djibouti is a good partner in this regard because eight submarine fiber optic cables land in Djibouti,” added the minister.

In July, a ship identified as MSC Alice Vessel, cut the Fibre optic cable from Mogadishu resulting serious internet disruption, that costs millions of dollars.
