The Ambassador of the Sultanate of Oman, Amb. Swaleh Bin Suleyman Bin Ahmad warmly received a delegation from the Eastern Africa Standby Force at the Embassy in Nairobi on Tuesday, 20th June 2017.

The EASF Delegation, led by the Director Dr. Abdillahi Omar Bouh, briefed the Ambassador on the growth of the regional peacekeeper since its inception more than a decade ago and the

activities it pertakes to ensure its readiness to deploy in Peace Support Operations.

The two leaders further discussed matters of collaboration on peace and security as well as regional geopolitics. Under peace and security, the talks focussed on efforts of combating terrorism whereby EASF could strengthen its cooperation with the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM).
