Maakhiri,

I thought when Farmaajo was less than 10 km from Somaliland border and he couldn't have the guts to cross it. For any sane person with an iota of brain cells, that could have signalled sometime but boy o boy, there are still folks who need it written in BIG BOLD LETTERS.

I think it is about time Villa Somalia comes clean on its limitations, so folks like yourself are in line with reality.

Suldaanka,

Folks, like our Maakhiri friend, can't really read or see the reality of the Somali peninsula. Even if that reality came down from nowhere and proceed, arrogantly, to mugs them in a broad daylight. And then for good measure beat them up senseless and leave them on the floor in the middle of the street, whilst blood is gushing out from their nose and their mouth.

And just to keep with their daily delusion they will still insist that it wasn't reality that have punched them in the mouth. But something else entirely different, like perhaps a "passing ghost" (or Jinn), or anything but reality.

So don't expect them to read (or see) anything remotely connected with Somaliland in their proper context. Sadly, that is a unique political ailment in which most unionists folks seems to harbor it, or seems to be inflicted with it.

As for this news it's really a wonderful outcome. And finally the "Barbarra corridor" can be implemented with speed and with purpose dedication after this deal gets to be enacted on the ground. It's about time, really.

DP WORLD SIGNS AGREEMENT WITH SOMALILAND AND ETHIOPIA

Dubai: An agreement has been signed between DP World and the governments of Somaliland and Ethiopia, through which Ethiopia will now become a strategic partner holding a share of 19 per cent in Berbera Port.

As per the agreement, Ethiopia will make the necessary infrastructure investment to develop the Berbera Trade Corridor. DP World continues to hold a share of 51 per cent share in Berbera Port, with Somaliland taking a share of 30 per cent, and Ethiopia holding a share of 19 per cent.

Sultan Ahmad Bin Sulayem, Group Chairman and CEO of DP World, said that this step is an important one that further strengthens DP World’s partnerships, and reaffirms its commitment towards the people of Ethiopia and Somaliland. “We look forward to working together in order achieve everyone’s interests. Ethiopia joining us as a partner in the Berbera Port project supports our plans to develop the port’s development, contribute to the development and prosperity of the region and creating promising trade opportunities,” said Bin Sulayem.

Ethiopia is the spoiled child here and is overwhelmed with choices getting 19% free shares for using Berbera,  or Djibouti gov can  offer  them better deal maybe 30% shares.

UAE and DP World display the flag of Somaliland on the table while Somalia's Prime Minister is visiting there.

What does that tells you then? Does it indicate to you about the conduct of a nation that is mindful (even of a little) of any alleged "territorial integrity" of Somalia in which some of the unionists folks hold it like so much of a holly-grail?

Or doesn't indicates to you, that like most nations around the world the UAE knows that when "rubber meets the road" (as it were) this alleged "territorial integrity" of Somalia has been a dead-letter for more than two (2) and half (1/2) decades.

And its, to boot, something that is observed strictly in breach by everyone else more than it gets to be honored with a faithful adherence of it by other states dealing with the Somali affairs.

Hence, perhaps,  finally, some of the unionists folks in this parish will start seeing the reality as it is, as painful as it may be to their political persuasion. As opposed to telling each other a fictional story about how others countries actually treat Somalia in their political actions.

And those "political actions" really is different than a mere "empty words" they may  - from time to time - offer in "respecting" the "territorial integrity" of the old defunct Somali Republic of yesteryear, which in turn is cheap verbal uttering on their part that has no lasting impact on the ground in the Somali peninsula.

"It feels darker before the sunrise"

This is for everybody.

Ethiopia is in trouble at home. This could be best opportunity for Somalia and or Somaliland.

Djibouti is in trouble with USA and EU. This could be opportunity for Somalia and or Somaliland.

Here is where the real and the fake leaders will separate.

Everyone including Gheuelleh wants to squeeze Ethiopia, but all afaid if the screws driven too fast the wood will split and the whole piece of lumber will be useless.

 

Somaliland has tto find a way through UK to get to USA. That could be end game. This is best time to do it.

Somalia can stay with Djibouti, Ethiopia and get to China through Turkey. This is best time to do it. Most risky but return is greatest.

Ethiopia should stay truelly neutral. The people on the ground should matter the most instead of politicians.

Now you getting the "game", finally. A real jigsaw of strategical re-alignment is being put together in front of our eyes. And it's important that you will not be standing on your feet when the waltz and the music stops and everyone sit downs with a "partner" of their choice they have befriended when the dance was on.

Now it's the time to "circulate" in the promenade, pick your suitor, carefully, do a sweet-nothing-tete-tete with them, seize the potential of it, dance with (if you must) without making too much hasty decision while you are "dancing". And when the Music stops, which will be soon when everyone will see the final hand of what China actually wants from Red-Sea, see to it, you have already "marked" your "partner" for a decent sit-down in a private corner for an in-depth discussion,

This is what every country in the Red Sea need to be fully cognition of it now. For the music and the dance of the "strategical waltz" will soon stop and every country needs a "partner" to live with and to go home with.

Ethiopia would not do this without Djibouti green light. Ethiopia cannot use another port unless it owns the other port. That is why Ethiopia had to be shareholder. This will limit Ethiopia's business through Berbera to 20% at most.

Djibouti has built already ports in the north which have separate agreements. The percentage there might be even higher for Djibouti.

 

Kismayo Mogadishu would have been next, but very unlikely current conditions.

 

In this new agreement, Ethiopia is not bound from developing new ports in other parts of horn. They must have Suakin and Kismayo in mind, but primarily will be Puntland. Puntland is critical for confidential or military or other materials. More security than Djibouti or Berbera for Ethiopia.
