White House Nominates First Ambassador To Somalia In Over 2 Decades

The U.S. government on Tuesday announced the nomination of America’s first ambassador to Somalia since 1991. Katherine Simonds Dhanani, a long-time diplomat and a Foreign Service veteran, would fill the post that has been vacant since the violent ouster of Somalia’s Siad Barre-led government.

In a statement released Tuesday, Jen Psaki, the U.S. State Department spokeswoman, said that the nomination was a sign of the “deepening relationship” between the two countries.
