UN Security Council lifts arms embargo on Somalia government

2/12/2023 7:43
        The United Nations Security Council unanimously voted on Friday to remove the final restrictions on weapons deliveries to Somalia's government and
        its security forces, more than 30 years after an arms embargo was first imposed on the country.
        
        The council put the embargo on Somalia in 1992 to cut the flow of weapons to feuding warlords, who had ousted dictator Mohamed Siad Barre and plunged the Horn of Africa country into civil war.
        
        The 15-member body adopted two British-drafted resolutions: one to remove the full arms embargo on Somalia and another to reimpose an arms embargo on al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab militants.
