Tuesday April 23, 2024

Mogadishu (HOL) - Turkish Navy Ship Kınalıada F514 docked at Mogadishu Sea Port on Tuesday following the signing of a defense and economic agreement between Somalia and Turkey in February 2024.

Somali government leaders are expected to participate in a high-level event aboard the ship to commemorate the 10-year defense and economic cooperation agreement with Turkey.

According to the Somali National News Agency, this marks the arrival of Turkey's first warship at Mogadishu Port, symbolizing the commencement of the 10-year agreement with Somalia.

Somali Prime Minister Hamza Abdi Barre addressed members of the cabinet in February and said that under the agreement, Turkey will build, train, and equip the Somali navy.

He described Turkey as a "true and reliable brother."
