Puntland and Jubaland have denied photo opportunity to the leaders of the Federal Government of Somalia to participate in a Ministrial Meeting that was scheduled to ocur in Baydhaba, Southwest State of Somalia.

Puntland and Jubaland had told Farmaajo-Khayre Administration that they had other pressing priorities to address.

It is known that Western financial institutions and donors had been  demanding for full participation of Federal Member States in Somalia’s quest for Debt Relief.

Unilateral actions and policy decision-making by FGS made most FMS uncomfortable and annoyed. The FGS was not providing national  leadership, democratic space and  environment conducive to constructive engagement with the Federal Member States.
