Somali President Mohamed Farmajo on Friday congratulated Antonio Guterres on his re-election as the UN Secretary-General for a second term beginning January 1, 2022.

Farmajo said the re-election of Guterres which came after the UN Security Council had unanimously recommended his name to the 193-member body for re-election, reaffirmed the belief in his dedicated service to humanity.
