UN Security Council Extends Mandate of UNSOM Until May 2022

New York - On Monday, 30 August, the UN Security Council extended the mandate of the United Nations Assistance Mission in Somalia (UNSOM) until 31 May 2022, and requested it to strengthen its presence across the country “as the security situation allows.” 

Unanimously adopting resolution 2592, the Council further decided that UNSOM should continue to coordinate United Nations efforts, maximizing joint approaches and programming, in full cooperation with the Federal Government of Somalia and the country’s Federal Member States, focused in particular on supporting acceleration of government-led inclusive politics.
