"Mogadishu, 22 January 2014 – Senior Somali security officers and their armoury storekeepers have received training in weapons monitoring and stockpile management over a two-day workshop in the capital, Mogadishu.

The workshop, organized by the Federal Government of Somalia and the United Nations Assistance Mission in Somalia (UNSOM), the UN Mine Action Service (UNMAS), the UN Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR), and the UN Development Programme, follows the passage of UN Security Council Resolution 2093 (2013), which partially lifted a 20-year-old arms embargo on Somalia in order to strengthen the FGS’ capacity to combat insurgents and protect the Somali people."
