Remarks by UN SRSG Keating for the Security Council consultations on Somalia
Mr. President [of the United Nations Security Council],
        
I am delighted to speak to you so early in my tenure. It is my pleasure to be briefing you alongside Ambassador Madeira who has been inpost since December 2015 – an old hand compared to me.

Before I start, allow me to pay tribute to my predecessor, Nicholas Kay, who handed over a mission that is in good shape.  All my interlocutors in Mogadishu – Somali and international, AU and UN – have stressed the critical role he and his team have played in the past two and a half years. 

         I would also like to pay tribute to the international community and to this Council, which has played a pivotal role on Somalia for several years. The unity of the Council is a fundamental requirement for progress in Somalia. I look forward to working closely with you.
