Turkey to host intl conference on Somalia, piracy on agenda

Turkey will host an international conference on political situation in Somalia and fight against piracy next month, a senior Spanish official said on Tuesday.

The conference will be held in Istanbul in mid-May, said Spanish Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Angel Losada.

Losada told a meeting of the parliamentary committee on foreign affairs that the idea of an international conference on Somalia was first brought forward last year by Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero and French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

Losada said the conference aims to draw the outline of the coordination of international assistance to interim Somali government.
