Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud on Tuesday accepted the credentials of the new Danish ambassador to Somalia, Geert Aagaard Andersen.

Ambassador Andersen presented to the president a message from the Danish government, pledging the support of the federal government of Somalia and firming ties with the country.

President Hassan thanked the new ambassador and his government, stating that accepting his credentials is the sign of the relationship between both countries.

The security situation in Somalia has been improving for the last one and half year, but last year’s presidential election in the country has encouraged many countries to establish diplomatic missions in Somalia.
