Following today’s speech at the Heritage Foundation by U.S. National Security Advisor Amb. John Bolton on The Trump Administration’s New Africa Strategy, Foreign Minister of the Republic of Somaliland Yasin Hagi Mohamoud Hiir made the following  statement:

The Republic of Somaliland welcomes efforts by the United States to empower African governments to seek greater freedom to chart their own democratic path, achieve independence from foreign influence and catalyze sustained economic growth through an embrace of free markets   all which we have successfully pursued since separating from Somalia and reclaiming our independence in 1991.

Today’s remarks by Amb. Bolton and America’s new strategy have opened the door to a strategic reevaluation of our diplomatic ties and a stronger partnership, from which there would be mutual benefits. Somaliland can be a model to others as the Trump Administration acts to advance democracy, good governance and a secure future for Africa.

  1. These three Amigos will not bring the coveted recognition of Somaliland. Faraton does not wield the connection necessary for the job. Bashiir Good stopped believing in Somaliland when Riyaale lost to Siilaanyo and Muuse Bihi’s confidant and follow Sa’ad Muuse clan member can barely articulate his point of view in english. So goodluck!
