Generally favorable reaction to Sheik Sharif Ahmed, Somalia's new president

It shows that the Djibouti peace process is alive and well and it is an indication that at least the possibility exists that Sheik Sharif and those who support him and the Djibouti process can in fact create a government of national unity. I don’t think there was any prospect of this until this development.
