Hargeisa (SD) – Somaliland has rejected a recent agreement between the United Nations and the Federal Government of Somalia on how the United Nations will operate in Somalia for the next five years.
“An agreement reached between Somalia and UN envoy James Swan on October 15, 2020, on a framework for co-operation, which appears to be an affront to Somaliland’s sovereignty and an interference in Somaliland’s internal affairs.” A statement from the Somaliland presidency said.
Somaliland described the agreement as interference “Somaliland is not and will not be part of the Federal Government of Somalia, and the Republic of Somaliland has already made its position clear, so the cabinet is declaring to the international community its independence.”
“Somaliland has not shared laws, employment, and co-operation with Somalia for thirty years. Somaliland will never listen to political, economic and media pressure to undermine Somaliland’s sovereignty.” said the statement from the Somaliland presidency.
