Somaliland reminds the international community that is not part of Somalia

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of the Republic of Somaliland issued a statement to remind the international community that it is not part of the selections being held in Somalia which the Federal Government of Somalia claims includes Somaliland. Below is the Press Release as translated by Somaliland Chronicle.

Somaliland reminds the international community that it is an independent and sovereign country that has nothing to do with the elections of the dysfunctional regime of Somalia.

In a statement issued today and addressed to the UN, the AU, the EU, and the international community as a whole, Somaliland’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said that since it regained its sovereignty in 1991 Somaliland is an independent and democratic country in which the people elect their representatives in the executive and legislative branches of the government and the local councils through countrywide one-person-one-vote elections.

“Therefore, Somaliland warns the Somalia regime and its politicians against their false and fantasy claims aimed at misleading the international community.”

“Somaliland, which is one of the leading democratic countries in Africa will not accept its name to be included in any way in the elections in Somalia.”.

Below is the Somali Language version of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation
