  • Description

    The Defence Minister of the Somali Democratic Republic, Mohammed Ali Samatar, began an official visit to the Soviet Union on Monday (2 August).

    SYNOPSIS: Mr. Samatar, who also holds the Somali Vice-Presidency, began talks in the Kremlin the day he arrived. He was greeted to the talks by Mr. Andrei Kirilengko, a member of the Soviet Union's Politburo. Among the Soviet delegation to the talks was the Chief of General Staff of the Armed Forces, Mr. Viktor Kulikov.

    The Soviet Union supplies military aid to Somalia which has one of the best equipped armed forces in East Africa. The United States has accused the Soviet Union of building a missile base in Somalia -- a charge strongly denied by both the Soviets and the Somalis. No details have been released on subjects discussed during the latest round of talks.
