Somalia and Somaliland Region to Resume Talks

Somaliland regional Foreign Affairs Minister Mohammed Abdullahi Omar said that dialogue between Somalia and Somaliland will resume in the new year, UN-funded Radio Bar-Kulan reported Sunday (January 13th).

The parties met for the first time in more than 20 years in London last June, where they discussed the appropriate relationship between Somalia and Somaliland, which has been autonomous since 1991 but does not have international recognition as an independent state.

The two governments also agreed to co-operate in the fight against terrorism and piracy.
