Canadian Friends of Somalia welcomes the appointment of Prime Minister Omar A. A.Sharmarke as Prime Minister of the Transitional Federal Government of Somalia and expresses the hope that the new unity government will continue and reinvigorate the reconciliation process.
The quick approval of his nomination by the Somali parliament suggests that a full-fledged new government can start taking measures to stabilize the country.
Canadian Friends of Somalia and other diaspora organizations already have excellent working relations with Mr. Sharmarke," said Mr.Aw-Osman "We are encouraged by the fact that Mr. Sharmarke, as a Somali-Canadian from Ottawa, and an expert in international development, will be sensitive to the international implications of events in Somalia."

We have every faith that Prime Minister Sharmarke will serve the interests of all Somalis and stand for a strong Somalia, respectful of all its citizens, and committed to doing its part in the fight against injustice and corruption.

we strongly recommend the new prime minister to reach out to other stakeholders who were absent from Djibouti peace process namely Puntland, Somaliland and Islamic resistance groups in the south. We wish PM Sharmarke a great success in tackling the challenges that lie ahead of him, and would like to emphasize that the Canadian Friends of Somalia will continue to be a partner and supporter of the development of a secure, stable and propose Somalia.
We look forward to working closely with this new Government and stand ready to offer our assistance and expertise on issues of concern, not just to the diaspora community, but to all Somalis.
Farah Aw-Osman
