The UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres said Somalia has made significant progress in the past few years as the country is on the path to the recovery.

He reaffirmed that the United Nations plans to replace an envoy who was expelled from Somalia after questioning the shooting of 15 civilians in Baidoa city last December.

Early, the world body argued that its personnel can’t be kicked out under the diplomatic doctrine that Somalia invoked.

Last Month, Somali government ordered UN envoy Nickolas Haysom to leave the country, saying he overreached and meddled in the country’s internal matters.
