Re: Council of Inter-State Cooperation(CiC) Position on the Special Arrangements
… We strongly support the position of the Federal Government of Somalia as communicated by H.E. Amb. Gamal Hassan in his letter of 9th June, 2018 on the subject of renewal of an expired special arrangement, which, at the 2013 New Deal Compact was agreed for only a set period (2013-2016). Any new special arrangements should reflect the economic situation of each FMS and should not be inclined towards any single State/region or damaging to the sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity of the country.
