“The Cabinet of Ministers discussed at length an agreement which the United Nation’s Special Representative, James Swan, and Somalia penned on 15 October 2020 on the UN’s Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNCF) which manifests an affront on the sovereignty and internal affairs of the Republic of Somaliland,” a statement issued by the cabinet said.

“Somaliland is not a member of the Somalia federal system, would not and had never been one,” the government statement said.

The Cabinet stated that the Republic of Somaliland has overtimes in the past shared its nationhood status and views with the international community and that it once more reiterates the existence of Somaliland and Somalia as two distinctly separate countries.

“Somaliland has for the past thirty years shared-nothing – whatsoever – with Somalia,” the statement shouted out.

The Republic of Somaliland, it continued to heavily underline ‘will not be daunted by any political, media or economic pressure aiming to cripple the sovereignty of the Republic of Somaliland’.
