Somalia on Sunday rejected an $80 million offer from Saudi Arabia to sever diplomatic ties with Qatar, according to local media.

Somali President Mohammed Abdullah Farmajo was put under “pressure” by Riyadh to sever their political relations with Qatar, Somalia Today reported.

“There was pressure put on the Somali government by Saudi Arabia to reverse Somalia’s decision to stay neutral in the siege imposed by some Arab governments on the State of Qatar,” the newspaper quoted unnamed sources.

A journalist for the New Khalij news outlet, Jaber Al-Harimi, confirmed the Somali President’s dismissal of the multi-million offer.

“After two hours of enticement, Farmajo rejected the tempting offer,” Harimi stated.
