Somalia-Somaliland Talks to Resume in August

The Somali federal government and the Somaliland regional administration will resume talks in August, Somaliland Foreign Minister Mohamed Bihi Yonis announced Thursday (July 3rd) during a press conference in Hargeisa.

The talks, originally scheduled to be held in May, were postponed at the request of the Somaliland regional government.

The talks are due to be held in Turkey, and Yonis said any other countries interested in helping to facilitate dialogue between the two parties would be invited to attend, the Somaliland Sun reported.

The two parties have participated in a series of talks in Turkey since 2012, with the most recent held in Istanbul in April over management of the country's airspace.
