Somaliland – Somalia talks resume in Djibouti

The President of the Republic of Somaliland HE Muse Bihi Abdi and his delegation departed Hargeisa International Airport and arrived in Djibouti today to meet with delegation led by Somalia President Mr. Mohamed Abdillahi Farmajo.

The meeting between the President of Somaliland HE Muse Bihi Abdi and the President of Somalia Mr. Mohamed Abdillahi Farmajo is arranged by the United States government and is hosted by Djibouti’s President Ismail Omar Geulleh.

President’s delegation include Dr. Edna Aden and Mr. Mohamed Bihi Yonis two former Foreign Ministers and seasoned politicians currently not part of Somaliland government.

The first meeting seems to be limited to the Presidents of Somaliland and Somalia, Chairman of Somaliland House of Elders Chairman Hon. Saleban Mohamud Adan, Somalia’s Chairman of the Upper house of the Parliament, the Somali Prime Minister, the President and Vice President of Djibouti.

Somaliland public opinion on the resumption of talks with Somalia and President Bihi’s meeting with Farmajo is mixed where some question the timing or if Somalia can be trusted to follow through on anything agreed on as the case was with previous rounds of talks in London and Ankara.

Somaliland government has not publicly released any information about the meeting and how long the arrangements has been ongoing. Sources tell Somaliland Chronicle that the Assistant Secretary for U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of African Affairs Mr. Tibor Nagy has spoken to President Bihi about the meeting.
