We will not give up to Somali, Says Monica Juma

The government has laid it clear that it will not give up any of their oil to any state.

This comes after claims that neighboring Somali had the intention of auctioning Kenyan oil blocks.

According to Foreign Cabinet Secretary Monica Juma, the government is waiting for a response that meets the minimum threshold from the Somali government over the disputed oil blocks in the Indian Ocean.

However the Somali government had refuted claims raised but did not deny the existence of a map that depicts the blocks are on Kenyan territory.

“Kenya’s position over this matter is inevitable and we shall not cede even an inch of our territory to anyone.”

In a letter through the foreign affairs office the Somali does not have any plans to offer any blocks in the disputed maritime area until the parties’ martime boundary is decided by the ICJ.

It also assured the Kenyan government that it will not undertake any activity within the disputed area as this may jeopardise the delimitation of the boundary dispute at the top UN court.

“In this respect, the Government of Somalia reassures the Government of Kenya that it stands by its commitment not to undertake any unilateral activity within the disputed area until such time that the ICJ renders its judgement,” it said in the letter.
