United States - The United States said on Wednesday that it views the Kenya-led capture of Kismayu as an important step in stabilising Somalia.
In a statement to the Daily Nation reports, the State Department said that, Al-Shabaab’s departure from Kismayu demonstrates continued momentum by pro-government forces against this terrorist organisation.
The statement went on further to say that it is clear that al-Shabaab’s extremist views and violent tactics have no future in a modern Somalia that is seeking to rebuild after more than two decades of conflict.
