US hails efforts to resume Somalia-Somaliland talks

by CKG Editor

The US government has welcomed the Somali government’s efforts to resume talks with the political stakeholders from Somaliland, a region in northern Somalia.

During a phone conversation on Wednesday with Somali President’s Special Envoy on Somaliland Affairs, Abdikarim Hussein Guled, the outgoing US ambassador to Somalia, Larry Andre hailed the move, saying the talks could end the long-time difference between the sides.

Mr Andre expressed the US government’s dedication to endorsing discussions between Somalia and Somaliland.

Somaliland, a region in northern Somalia had declared to have seceded from Somalia in 1990 after the fall of the government led by the late Mohamed Siad Barre.

The region which succeeded to restore peace has held parliamentary and presidential elections. But the region failed to gain international recognition.

The talks between Somalia and Somaliland began in 2012 when the London Conference on Somalia, held at Lancaster House in February resulted in a communiqué.

In 2014, the Federal Government of Somalia and the self-declared Republic of Somaliland signed an accord following three-day talks moderated by the Turkish Foreign Ministry.
