Somalia's leaders are committed to ensuring a safe and sustainable future for the country's people

Somalia's leaders are committed to ensuring a safe and sustainable future for the country's people, but no-one should be under any illusion that this may take a long time, a senior UN official said on Tuesday. Michael Keating, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Somalia and head of UN Mission UNSOM, has been speaking from the capital Mogadishu, where a security and humanitarian conference is under way. Amid plans to draw down troops from the African Union Mission (AMISOM) stationed in Somalia and boost Somali forces, Mr Keating told Daniel Johnson how political leaders have shown their willingness to continue military reforms.
