United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres "deeply regrets" Somalia's decision to expel his envoy to the country and will appoint a new representative "in due course," a U.N. spokesman said on Friday.

Somalia's foreign ministry accused the envoy, Nicholas Haysom, of interfering in internal affairs. U.N. spokesman Farhan Haq said that Guterres had spoken twice with Somali President Mohamed Abdullahi in a bid to convince him to change the decision.
