  1. Faysal waa caruusadda abtigeed. Somalidu sideedaba waa munaafaqiin. Waxay hoosta ka xamxamyidhaahdaan ayuu Faysal microphone ka hor yidhaa. Most of the he is actually right. If you feel that you had to say something, have balls and say it. Waxa laga yaaba in aakhir xaasil la isla wada keeno. Besides, that Chairman Faisal is a likeable man in private.

  6. Somaliland plays up its geopolitical role, courting China and Taiwan In the span of a few short months in mid-2020, Somaliland’s capital, Hargeisa, played host to multiple diplomats from the region and beyond, as President Muse Bihi Abdi’s administration plays on diplomatic squabbles to leverage its position. Among them have been representatives from Kenya, Egypt, Ethiopia, China and Taiwan. Each country sent representatives to try and win Hargeisa’s cause to its side of tiffs, in moves which point to an increasingly more adept administration in the breakaway region. * Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed sent representatives to try and undo a growing relationship between Hargeisa and Cairo, which could see the two open representative offices in each other’s capitals and could give Cairo a military foothold in the Horn. Ethiopia and Egypt are at daggers drawn over the management of water from the Nile River. * Kenya’s former prime minister and opposition leader, Raila Odinga, also sent representatives to Hargeisa, in what analysts view as another growing dispute between Nairobi and Mogadishu. Kenyan troops are in Somalia to fight against the threat of the Islamist militants of Al-Shabaab. * Nairobi is particularly important to Somaliland’s cause after Kenya won a United Nations Security Council seat in a competition that revealed the broad lines of geopolitics in East Africa. Djibouti, the home of foreign military bases vital, received support from Somalia and other countries. Attracting Asian attention Globally, Somaliland’s growing relationship with Taiwan immediately attracted Beijing’s attention, as it would give Taipei a foothold in the Horn, as well as on the continent. eSwatini is the only state on the continent that currently recognises Taiwan.

  7. On 24th July Cheeseman was told to forget about 'selection based' process. And the US has now told him to forget about entertaining 'extension'. That is a very tight spot to be indeed. By any other name, I think that reads 'resign' and leave office and let someone capable steer the ship.

  12. Which Way Somaliland: Taiwan or China? "Somaliland is the middle of a tense courtship between China and Taiwan, leading to conflicting signals about which way the self-declared nation in the Horn of Africa is leaning. On the one hand, if you follow the Twitter accounts of Mohamed Hagi, the newly arrived ambassador to Taipei, and the Taiwan Ministry of Foreign Affairs, you’d likely think this is a done deal and that the two governments are moving ahead with diplomatic recognition."

  13. I respect MP Jirdeh and his views. I think it is more towards sending a message to Somalilanders than anything meaningful to the contrary. However, if we stretch the same argument and look at the flip-side, it is also true that Somaliland has everything and missing only the a seat at the UN. And that too, Hargeisa can do and will do without Mogadishu. The reason the world has been not prioritising the Somaliland/Somalia issue has been a lot to do with the lack of government in South Somalia and the terrorism, instability etc. Therefore if we hypothetically assume that Somalia established a government that is able to assume authority all over Southern Somalia and Alshabab is defeated etc etc. If that was true back in 1990s or early 2000 or early 2010s... then this whole Somaliland/Somalia issue could have been resolved.
  14. Absolutely. Taiwan's Foreign Minister recently commended Somaliland's handling of China's wolf-tactic diplomacy. He called on the world to recognise Somaliland's position that "Friendship and Sovereignty are not for sale". Somaliland's ambassador to Taiwan who was invited to a state dinner that was held for Secretary Alex Azar while in Taipei recently has tweeted.
