Gulf States Increase Tension in Somalia

The Institute for Security Studies published on 20 June 2018 a commentary titled "Somalia Must Look Inward To Defuse Its Tensions" by Omar S. Mahmood.

Somalia's federal member states have been upset with Mogadishu's foreign policy direction since last year. Somalia's government has sided with Qatar in the Gulf State disputes in opposition to federal member states' interests. While other Horn of Africa countries have been pressured to choose sides in this dispute, Somalia has suffered the worst consequences.
