The Ethiopia government has appointed a new consul to Somaliland capital


The new consul will be Mr.Shamsudin Ahmed Roble who once served as Ethiopia's ambassador to Djibouti and Kenya.

The new envoy replaces the former ambassador Mr.Berehe Tesfaye who had been

the resident diplomat in Hargeisa for more than a decade.

According to the sources, Shamsuddin has been based in Addis Ababa

following Ethiopia's government move to recall dozen of diplomats across

the globe.

Somaliland and Ethiopia share a cordial relationship since it announced unilateral

independence from Somalia in 1991 but it failed to win international recognization.
