The United States commended Somaliland for its role in strengthening regional stability and promoting peace and democracy.

“Our 12 May meetings in Hargeisa & Berbera focused on mutual benefits from closer U.S. cooperation w/ Somaliland authorities. Greater engagement b/w AFRICOM & Somaliland’s military and coast guard will advance shared interests in regional stability, protecting vital trade routes.” AFRICOM said.

A new statement from the US Africa Command (AFRICOM) Added “We appreciate Somaliland’s regional role as a resilient, stable, and peaceful democracy.
