The Ambassadors after receiving a brief on the security situation appreciated UPDF participation in establishing peace and security not only in Uganda but the region.

Gen. Muhoozi further shared with them the conviction of Uganda that the drawdown of forces in Somalia should be condition and not time based.

“The situation on ground should be the main factor for consideration
when making decisions on the security in Somalia,” he
emphasized.

Gen Joseph Musanyufu among others
