The delegation, which was led by Sen. Mark Kirk, a Republican from Illinois, met with the president of Puntland in the town of Bossaso, the region's commercial hub.
The U.S. government has announced what it calls a two-track approach to Somalia. One track is continued support for the U.N.-backed government in Mogadishu, while reaching out to leaders in other parts of the country.
Somalia has been without a fully functioning central government since 1991.
