Somaliland Welcomes Zambian Government Delegation

A Zambian government delegation led by the Minister of Justice Mr. Gavin Lubinda has arrived today in Hargeisa, the capital city of the Republic of Somaliland. The Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Hon. Liban Yusuf Osman and other Somaliland government officials have received at Egal International Airport.

This follows the recent three-day visit by the Malawian Minister of Foreign Affairs Mr. Eisenhower Mkaka to Somaliland and delegations from South Africa, the Czech Republic. Somaliland’s diplomatic profile has been on an upward trajectory that started with the establishment of bilateral ties with Taiwan last summer and President Bihi’s historic visit to Nairobi and the meeting with President Uhuru Kenyatta in December 2020.

Other governments have closely watched Somaliland’s upcoming local and parliamentary elections, including the United States. On March 2nd Congressional hearing on Elections in Africa of the House Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, and Global Human Rights, Congressman Chris Smith has praised Somaliland for advancing electoral democracy on its upcoming parliamentary and local elections on May 31st.

The itinerary of the delegation and the purpose of their visit to Somaliland has not been disclosed yet, but they are expected to meet the President of the Republic of Somaliland HE Muse Bihi Abdi, and members of his cabinet.
