FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Today, the United States imposed sanctions on six individuals who threaten peace in Somalia. These individuals all have links to the terrorist organization al-Shabaab, which remains one of the greatest obstacles to restoring stability in Somalia. The sanctioning of two Eritrean military officials underscores the ongoing concern about Eritrea's violations of Security Council resolutions. Thwarting Somalia’s path to peace and creating regional discord will not be tolerated. The United States condemns, in the strongest terms, all acts that further destabilize Somalia and bring harm to innocent civilians.
