Somalia’s Prime Minister Hassan Ali Khaire is in Norway and met both Prime Minister Erna Solberg (H) and Development Minister Nikolai Astrup (H) on Wednesday.


This is the second time Hassan Ali Khaire meets Norway’s prime minister as they met in a bilateral meeting in Davos, Switzerland when Erna Solberg attended a meeting at the World Economic Forum.

On Tuesday, Khaire promised that the country will investigate closer to the disclosure that Norwegian Somali children are sent to Koran schools in Somalia where they are subjected to abuse and severely punishment. He then said that Somali authorities had already started investigations.

Khaire and a Somali delegation with several government members are in Oslo in connection with the International Conference Oslo Forum, which is organized at Losby Gods.

The Oslo Forum Conference is one of the foremost meeting places in the world for facilitators, peacekeepers, top politicians and other actors from peace processes and conflict resolution.

Hassan Ali Khaire is a Norwegian citizen since 1989 when he, himself came to Norway as a refugee. In February last year he was appointed prime minister of Somalia.
