Sheikh Sharif seeks to meet PM Gedi

During yesterday's brief appearance of the US Ambassador to the UN, an Islamist insider and confident said that Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed, the leader of the Islamic Courts Union (ICU) asked him to check secretly Prime Minister Ali Mohamed Gedi's position on the possibility of face-to-face meeting between them in Baidabo. The goal is to end the hostility between the two groups and relocate the government of Interim Prime Minister Ali Gedi to Mogadishu.

Although one of the most widely accepted myths is that Interim Prime Minister Ali Mohamed Gedi is Addis Ababa puppet and the Islamic Courts Union (ICU) are against the Ethiopian Interference, yet the prospect of such meeting between the Leader of the internationally recognized Government and the chairman of the Union of the Islamic Courts, a moderate face of Islamist and leading figure who controls most of the country will be enormous task to be achieved.

As the news not confirmed yet but it is widely believed to be the fruits of intensive negotiation between the speaker of the Parliament Mr. Hassan Sh. Adan and the President of Djibouti Mr. Omar Gelle during his recent visit to Djibouti City. Many consider President Omar Gelle the force behind this new initiative.

Although the new proposed UN resolution draft that tabled by the US may not be successful, yet it my lead to intense diplomatic efforts to achieve a permanent peace in Somalia particular and the whole region in general.

The New UN draft would lift a 1992 arms embargo against Somalia so that troops in the "protection and training mission" could be militarily equipped and it would ban Somalia's neighbors (Including Ethiopia) from sending soldiers - a key point for the Islamist -.

It will be the breakthrough that the people of Somalia are waiting if both leaders who came from same Sub-Clan capitalize their adventure and suppress the hardliners from their groups in order to reach a peaceful solution to the current crisis.
