UN cautions enemies of the Somali peace process
(AFP) - The United Nations (UN) Security Council warned Al-Qaeda-linked Shebab rebels on Thursday against trying to impede the peace process in Somalia.
The 15 council members hailed the adoption of a new provisional constitution earlier this month by the Somali National Constituent Assembly, saying it marked an "important milestone" in the eastern African nation's transition toward "more stable and accountable governance."
"The members of the Security Council strongly condemn ongoing attempts, including by the Shebab, to undermine the transition process," they said in a statement.
"They recall in this regard the Security Council's willingness to take measures against both internal and external actors engaged in actions aimed at undermining the peace and reconciliation process."
