Undersecretary for Foreign Affairs Alfredo Mantica speaks of situational in the Horn of Africa country, ravaged by 22 years of civil war and clashes between clans, following the decision of the president and the speaker of Parliament to force the resignation of the Prime Minister of the transitional government, which instead is supported by thousands of people took to the streets in recent days in his own defense Daniele Mastrogiacomo.

ROME – We met the Undersecretary for Foreign Minister to whom we asked to paint a picture of the situation in Somalia, where they continue protests against a decision of the President Sheik Sharif Ahmed Shieck, former leader of Islamic Courts and the speaker of Parliament, Sharif Hassan, a year to move the date of the elections and to force the resignation within days, the current prime minister of the transitional government, Abdullahi Mohamed Mohamed.

Senator Alfredo Mantica, what happens in Somalia?

“There seems to be a strong protest in Mogadishu. We do not know how extensive, whether popular or exploited by others. But we know that has its foundation.”

According to our information is a protest to defend the prime minister, perhaps the first head of government who has obtained important results in twenty years.

“Last week an agreement was signed in Kampala, Uganda, with which it is one year extension of the parliamentary elections in Somalia. They were scheduled for next August 21. President Sheik Ahmed and the speaker of Parliament Sharif Hassan wanted to extend three years the mandate of the transitional government. The international community, headed by the U.S. and the UN were against it. The President of Uganda has mediated and it was decided to extend for one year only. ”

But with the obligation of the prime minister to resign within 30 days. As president and speaker of Parliament remain in office. It seems a stretch, does not believe Undersecretary Mantica?

“The Somali situation is complex and difficult. I’ll take care of at least ten years and are on the verge of nervous. The balance between clans are always precarious, and without this balance is difficult to reconstruct a semblance of civil society, it is complicated to operate institutions, legislation, try to slowly return to normal. Now we are faced with a conflict between the President, former leader of the Islamic Courts and therefore more orthodox religious values ??and the speaker of Parliament more secular. Say expression of Ethiopia.

Excuse me, but the agreement provides for the forced resignation of Prime Minister and the simultaneous confirmation of the president and the speaker of Parliament. Both want to invalidate the head of government. This is why thousands of Somalis took to the streets. It had never happened.

“The prime minister has been in office five months. And ‘early to judge his work. But what he has done so far has been very positive. It has achieved important results. The government already seemed a miracle.” Why send him home, then.

“The strength of the instability in Somalia is a constant. And the prime minister represents stability.”

But then it seems absurd not to support the agreement in Kampala, which means, in effect, endorsing what she calls “the force of instability”?

“The international community, including Italy, is tired of the disputes that divide Somalia.

Amisom troops for five years, Ugandans and Burundians, are there to fight against the Shaabab. But we’re still in a political stalemate.”

Italy has decided to open an embassy in Mogadishu. There seems to be a gesture that leads to a semblance of normality. “It ‘s a decision we made with Britain and the United Nations. All three will open a representative office in the airport area, under the control of forces AMISOM.

Then comes the Parliament extended its term for three. Does Italy support this decision or not?

“We were opposed to an extension of the transitional government for three years. We can not continue indefinitely. We welcome the postponement of an election for a year.”

Should the government remain in office along with its Prime Minister?

“Yes, we believe that the accord should be discussed in the Parliament. The President, the Speaker of the Parliament and the Prime minister should remain in office for one more year.

Leave Somalia prey to radical Islamists, al Qaeda and pirates seems very destabilizing, not only for the region but for the same land and sea trade. What can be done to resolve a crisis that has lasted 22 years?

“Three things. First, create a stability. Secondly, to advance good governance and manage the vital infrastructure of the country. You can not win the consent of the population, where the port, for example, is full of poor and rates are higher than elsewhere. Third, insist on dialogue between the different clans on the basis of the Djibouti agreement. The forces in the country must be fairly represented. ”

Are these forces include the Shaabab?

“We know all or much of the Taliban, but we know nothing of the Shaabab. There are two souls within them: one that has an agenda and the Somali national who has radical Islamic agenda. With the first is a dialogue. Somalia has never been a fundamentalist country, then there is a clear refusal to Salafi Islam. The people have shown many times and this Shaabab to know. Today there are difficulties. ”

What is Italy doing in Somalia?

“We are following the path traced by the British in Somaliland. We support and are present in Puntland, the old Migiurtina. We believe that to leave the swamp must create the conditions for the emergence of a federation of Somalia. In Puntland this is possible because c ‘ is a stable form of government, there are institutions. ”

Is it true that the pirates are also in Puntland.

‘It is true. But there are conditions to normalize the situation. “And the others, Mogadishu and the rest of the country?

“We will adapt, will agree. Choose whether to stay in the swamp or rise again. They have a year’s time:

government, parliament and the president remain in office.”

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

We Are Winning the War on Terrorism in Horn of Africa

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.
