MOSCOW, January 15 /TASS/. Moscow has resolutely condemned the Al-Shabaab militant group for an attack on a military base of the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) peacekeeping contingent, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on its website on Friday.
"According to reports coming in, militants of the Al-Shabaab radical group attacked the AMISOM military contingent’s base in the south of Somalia. At least 50 AMISOM peacekeepers from Kenya have been reported dead," the Russian Foreign Ministry went on to say.
"We resolutely condemn this terror attack. We support the efforts of Somalia’s federal government to restore the (country’s) statehood and reach national reconciliation. Russia, which is a permanent U.N. Security Council member, will continue rendering all necessary assistance to the process of the intra-Somalian settlement," the ministry said.
The Russian Foreign Ministry has presented profound condolences to the families and relatives of the dead.
