The meeting was attended by deputy chairman of the RBMRF for International Affairs Rushan Abbyasov, first secretary of the Embassy of Somalia Jabir Ali Hassan and head of the International Department of the RBMRF Ildar Galeyev.

The head of RMC stressed that the ties and contacts between the peoples of Russia and Somalia have significant potential for development.
