UNITED NATIONS, United States: The UN Safety Council on Friday fully lifted an arms embargo on Somali authorities forces, however continued to keep up sanctions towards the Al-Shabab jihadist group.
The UN carried out a common arms embargo on Somalia in 1992, however has since largely eased it with regard to Somali forces.
The embargo didn’t apply to deliveries of weapons for the event of Somali safety forces, though the UN committee overseeing the sanctions needed to be notified and will object to sure heavy weapons.
