Credible sources say President Hassan will attend the inauguration ceremony of Erdogan who is the incoming ceremonial president of Turkey.
Erdogan was the immediate former premier of Turkey but as he was going out, he contested for the ceremonial presidency which he eventually won with landslide victory early this month.
The inauguration is taking place on Thursday. The credible sources in Mogadishu and Ankara say Erdogan invited President Hassan. At least the leaders of 15 countries were invited to attend the inauguration.
However these don’t include the leaders of Egypt, Israel and Syria. The presidents of Ethiopia, Ukraine, Togo, Albania and Turkmenistan were invited among others.
When he was still the Prime Minister, Erdogan visited Somalia at the height of 2011 famine.
