From Downing St:

"The Prime Minister met the President of Somalia, Sharif Ahmed, in Downing Street today. The Prime Minister raised the case of Paul and Rachel Chandler and welcomed an assurance from the President that his Government was doing everything within its power to ensure their safe and swift release. He made clear that the Chandlers should be urgently reunited with their family. They agreed to continue to work closely together to secure this outcome.

The Prime Minister was also updated on the Transitional Federal Government's efforts to promote security, governance and economic development. He stressed that Somalia's efforts were vital to Britain and the international community's efforts to create a stable and piracy-free Horn of Africa".
