Somaliland Strategic Advisory Group (SL-SAG) wish the people of the Republic of Somaliland Independence Day to commemorate the commencement of 31st year of Independence Day.
As the entire world can attest to, The Republic of Somaliland has been a standard-bearer for democracy, peace, and rule of law in the Horn of Africa and has surpassed many countries around the world in these important benchmarks without recognition for 31 years and this is all because of the resilient people of Somaliland and their desire to support peace and order in their country.
Somaliland’s legal case for recognition extends back to its founding and independence from Great Britain in June 1960, when it voluntarily joined with the former Italian Somalia to form what was at the time known as the Somali Republic. Due to the sweat and sacrifice made by our heroes who have made this day a realty, The Somaliland of Somaliland has had five peaceful transfers of power and has held a credible one-person-one-vote since 1991.
To the people of the Republic of Somaliland, recognition is more than gaining a seat at the UN or other important fora, instead, it is something that affects every aspect of their daily life, and it is simply unacceptable that Somaliland is still unrecognized after 31 years of checking every box of what defines a nation-state stays unrecognized. The struggle by our heroes for independence has not ended. We contribute our Quota by striving for prosperity and betterment of this great country.
The wind is on the back of the Republic of Somaliland and years of challenging work are coming to fruition by setting up strategic bilateral ties with the United States following the successful visit of President Muse Bihi Abdi to the United States and we urge the United States Congress to support the Somaliland Partnership Act.
Somaliland Strategic Advisory Group (SL-SAG) will work tirelessly to organize Somalilander – Americans to urge their Senator and congressional representative to support the Somaliland Partnership Act to codify the historic relationship between the United States of America and the Republic of Somaliland.
