The governments of Djibouti and Somalia have reached an agreement on capacity sharing of the submarine optic fibre cable, the Djibouti African Regional Express.
The agreement was reached at the end of a four-day working visit to Djibouti by Somalia’s telecommunications minister Abdi Ashur Hassan.
Hassan and his Djibouti counterpart Abdi Youssouf Sougueh signed on behalf of their respective countries.
The communique revealed the existence of a principle of progress in the negotiations between the two governments on the one hand, and between the Somali telecommunications carriers and Djibouti Telecom on the other hand.
