US President Donald Trump is set to withdraw US troops from Somalia, Bloomberg reported, citing sources.
The agency found out that the US administration reacted negatively to the president’s decision to withdraw troops. The White House believes that the Somali government does not have enough control over the situation in the country.
“If the United States significantly reduces its military presence in Somalia, then the already weak control of the Somali government over security in the country will be significantly reduced,” said Colin Thomas-Jensen, an adviser to former US Ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power. He added that the current situation can be used by the terrorist group “Al-Shabab“.
