Galkayo (SD) – Ahmed Duale Guelleh (Haf), who is claiming to be the president of Galmudug, issued a press statement on the situation of the local administration, especially the recent statements by the US ambassador to Somalia.
According to a statement from Haf’s office in Galkayo, the US ambassador to Somalia, Donald Yamamoto, has intervened in Galmudug’s affairs and has supported the establishment of a coup administration.
He also said that the international community needs to play its role in contributing to the public interest of that administration.
President Haf also called on the United States to change its policy towards Somalia, particularly Galmudug state, and to reverse its earlier decision, supporting the new administration.
The statement comes as the United States became the first country to support President Qoor Qoor’s election in Dhusamareb, the capital of Galgadud region.
The US ambassador did not respond to President Haf’s recent statement yet, and its not likely his demands will be acknowledged by the US at this point in time.
