MOGADISHU (SD) – The Council of Ministers of the Federal Government of Somalia, in an extraordinary meeting held in Mogadishu, has announced a strong statement regarding the Addis Ababa agreement between Somaliland and Ethiopia.
The government spokesperson, in a statement shared with the media, said Somalia has swiftly recalled its ambassador to Ethiopia in response to the contentious agreement reached between Somaliland’s President Muse Bihi Abdi and Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed in Addis Ababa. The government emphasized that the agreement between Somaliland and Ethiopia is considered null and void by Somalia.
Furthermore, the Federal Government of Somalia characterized the agreement as a betrayal and a direct threat to the unity and sovereignty of Somalia.
The government stated that the agreement undermines national interests and sovereignty, and it called on the international community, including the United Nations Security Council, the African Union, IGAD, and Somalia’s allies, to reject the agreement and support the territorial integrity of Somalia. The government also urged Ethiopia to reconsider its stance and respect Somalia’s sovereignty.
The Addis Ababa agreement has sparked significant controversy, with the Federal Government of Somalia strongly objecting to its terms and expressing concerns about its potential implications on regional stability.
