Stop Taking Peace for Granted, UN Envoy Tells Somalis

A United Nations diplomat appealed to Somalis not to take peace for granted.

Catriona Laing, the UN Special Representative to Somalia, said this in an address on Thursday.

She was speaking on the International Day of Peace.

“Peace is not something that we should take for granted,” she said in a video message.

“I encourage all Somalis to take concrete actions for peace,” added Ambassador Laing.
