ANKARA (SD) -The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Somali Government has provided details on the discussions held in Turkey between delegations representing the governments of Somalia and Ethiopia. These talks addressed the tensions arising from Ethiopia’s maritime agreement with Somaliland.

A statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Somalia indicated that the meetings in Turkey were not face-to-face. The ministry emphasized that the Somali delegation took a firm stance on maintaining the country’s unity and sovereignty.
