Stephen M. Schwartz the first American representative to Somali since the civil war in 1991 arrived on the 9th of August 2016 in Mogadishu where he presented his credentials to Somali Foreign Minister Abdusalam Omer.
"The appointment of an ambassador to Somalia is a sign of the strong bonds between the two countries," Schwartz said after the meeting. "... I am pleased to have this opportunity to help the people of Somalia build a peaceful nation with a stable democratic government."
