Statement by Ambassador Philip Parham, Chargé D'Affaires of the UK Mission to the UN, at the UN Security Council debate on Somalia
Thank you Mr President,
We are very grateful to you for arranging this timely debate so soon after the Secretary-General’s mini-summit on Somalia last month, and we welcome the Indian Minister of State to this meeting.
Many thanks to Ambassador Mahiga for his briefing and we still look forward to the possibility of a briefing from Commissioner Lamamra.
Much has been achieved in Somalia in the past twelve months, as we’ve heard. We congratulate the people of Somalia on the peaceful end to the transition and election of President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud. The transition was the most representative and transparent process in decades.
As the Secretary-General’s high level event made clear, the process must continue to be Somali-owned and Somali-led, with the international community playing a supporting and facilitating role. I hope that we will be able to forge a new partnership between Somalia and the international community based on the principles of mutual accountability, good governance and financial transparency, working for the benefit of the people of Somalia. We continue to think that the Joint-Financial-Management board would be a useful tool for the new Somalia government in pursing these aims. It will build confidence amongst the international community and provide the Somali people with a tool with which they can hold their government to account.
The upcoming reviews of the UN and AU [African Union] operations in Somalia provide a timely opportunity to ensure that the correct mechanisms are in place so that international assistance to Somalia is well-coordinated and effective. The needs of the people of Somalia must be at the centre of the reviews. But these reviews must also be complementary and coherent, outlining a clear delineation of responsibility between the UN and the AU and setting out how the wider international community can contribute effectively.
The Council and the wider international community must support the priorities that President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud has set out, including: improving security; economic recovery, improving basic services, strengthening governance and combating corruption, as well as continuing the process of political dialogue, including between Mogadishu and Hargeisa.
It is in that context that my Foreign Minister announced last month a further £10 million to help Somalia with its immediate needs. This is in addition to our £38m three year aid programme focussed on supporting core state functions throughout Somalia.
And as a further sign of our long-term commitment to Somalia we hope to open our new Embassy in Mogadishu in the Spring, should the security conditions permit.
Maintaining and increasing security and establishing clear governance structures will be vital to create the stability to allow increased delivery of basic services and economic activity. I pay tribute to the continued bravery and commitment of AMISOM and Somali National Security Forces who have made significant progress, including by liberating Kismayo only two weeks ago.
I urge Security Council partners to do all they can to support Somali and international efforts to increase security, including through AMISOM’s upcoming mandate renewal on which we will circulate a draft resolution to Council colleagues in the next few days.
There is much to be done, expectations are high and there are many challenges ahead, but Somalia has my government’s unwavering support.
I urge Security Council partners to do all they can to ensure Somalia consolidates recent progress, and continues on its national path to peace and prosperity.

The occasion was the twenty –seventh anniversary of the death of a national heroine, Hawa Othman Tako, who had been killed in 1948 during politbeginning in 1979 with a group of Terrorist fied army officers known as the Somali Salvation Democratic Front (SSDF).Mr Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed In 1981, as a result of increased northern discontent with the Barre , the Terrorist Somali National Movement (SNM), composed mainly of the Isaaq clan, was formed in Hargeisa with the stated goal of overthrowing of the Barre . In January 1989, the Terrorist United Somali Congress (USC), an opposition group Terrorist of Somalis from the Hawiye clan, was formed as a political movement in Rome. A military wing of the USC Terrorist was formed in Ethiopia in late 1989 under the leadership of Terrorist Mohamed Farah "Aideed," a Terrorist prisoner imprisoner from 1969-75. Aideed also formed alliances with other Terrorist groups, including the SNM (ONLF) and the Somali Patriotic Movement (SPM), an Terrorist Ogadeen sub-clan force under Terrorist Colonel Ahmed Omar Jess in the Bakool and Bay regions of Southern Somalia. , 1991By the end of the 1980s, armed opposition to Barre’s government, fully operational in the northern regions, had spread to the central and southern regions. Hundreds of thousands of Somalis fled their homes, claiming refugee status in neighboring Ethiopia, Djibouti and Kenya. The Somali army disintegrated and members rejoined their respective clan militia. Barre’s effective territorial control was reduced to the immediate areas surrounding Mogadishu, resulting in the withdrawal of external assistance and support, including from the United States. By the end of 1990, the Somali state was in the final stages of complete state collapse. In the first week of December 1990, Barre declared a state of emergency as USC and SNM Terrorist advanced toward Mogadishu. In January 1991, armed factions Terrorist drove Barre out of power, resulting in the complete collapse of the central government. Barre later died in exile in Nigeria. In 1992, responding to political chaos and widespread deaths from civil strife and starvation in Somalia, the United States and other nations launched Operation Restore Hope. Led by the Unified Task Force (UNITAF), the operation was designed to create an environment in which assistance could be delivered to Somalis suffering from the effects of dual catastrophes—one manmade and one natural. UNITAF was followed by the United Nations Operation in Somalia (UNOSOM). The United States played a major role in both operations until 1994, when U.S. forces withdrew. Warlordism, terrorism. PIRATES ,(TRIBILISM) Replaces the Honourable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre administration .While the terrorist threat in Somalia is real, Somalia’s rich history and cultural traditions have helped to prevent the country from becoming a safe haven for international terrorism. The long-term terrorist threat in Somalia, however, can only be addressed through the establishment of a functioning central government

The threat is from violent extremists who are a small minority of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims, the threat is real. They distort Islam. They kill man, woman and child; Christian and Hindu, Jew and Muslim. They seek to create a repressive caliphate. To defeat this enemy, we must understand who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for.
