    In a country that has experienced over 20 years of conflict and instability, Somalia's Transitional Federal Government (TFG) struggles to advance the Djibouti Peace Process and bring stability to the war-torn nation. Terrorism, violence, and instability within the country are not only domestic concerns, but have larger regional and international implications as well. Ambassador Johnnie Carson will speak on the current situation in Somalia and long-term U.S. policy approaches to help Somalis achieve peace and stability.
