President Silanyo departs for the Turkey TalksPresident Silanyo departs for the Turkey Talks

HARGEISA (Somalilandsun) – An all-encompassing delegation representing the country in talks with Somalia has departed the capital city Hargeisa for Turkey.

The delegation led by H.E Ahmed Mahmud Silanyo which was given a warm send-off by thousands of citizens at the Egal international Airport shall travel to the Turkish capital Ankara via Addis Ababa Ethiopia.

At a pre-departure press conference at the airport's VIP lounge president Silanyo who informed that they are yet to receive the talk's agenda from host turkey said the country's stance on non-negotiation of its sovereignty remains supreme.

"During discussions with our southern neighbours Somalia the issue of Somaliland's Sovereignty shall and will not be on the agenda" said president Silanyo

Somaliland broke away from its fateful union with Somalia after a prolonged and damaging civil war 22 years ago is still reeling from the massive damage on both lives and property meted upon it by the regime of Dictator Siad Barre.

Saying that it is his duty and mandate to seek sovereignty recognition for the country from the international community President Silanyo informed that he shall not cower from this arduous task and that his administration will travel anywhere in the world and meet any who are of interest in pursuit of the recognition quest.

Sending off the president and his entourageSending off the president and his entourageThe talks between Somaliland and Somalia which were initiated during the February 2012 London conference on Somalia saw two meetings in Chevening house London where an 8 point agreement was reached between technical committees and in Dubai where the 4 point "Dubai declaration" was signed by president Silanyo and his then counterpart Sheikh Sharif.

Somaliland postponed the now to be resumed talks in Turkey, mid last year, after the mandate of the sheikh Sharif led TFG –Government expire thus facilitating the Selection of current president Hassan sheikh Mahmud who is expected to meet with president Silanyo for the first time in Ankara.

Although the talks are resuming in turkey the British government the original initiator is said to be part and parcel of the process that remains very thorny thus defeating the diplomatic prowess of the Britons due to the divergent stances taken by the two sides with Somaliland adamant on non-discussion of its sovereignty and Somalia determined to recreate the union broken by Somaliland in 1991.

While the Somalia government is adamant on reuniting with Somaliland the Hargeisa government fully supported by 97.9% of citizens is determined that:

• Sovereignty and unity are taboo areas not for discussions with anybody

• Somali Federal Government-SFG l should acknowledge "crimes committed" against the people of Somaliland.

• Thus the talks should only focus on areas of cooperation such as borders, security and trade.


The president who is accompanied by the first lady Ms Amina Mohamed Jirdeh 'Amina Weris' is leading an all-encompassing delegation that includes administration officials, political party leaders and members of parliament namely:

Minister of foreign affairs Dr Mohamed Abdilahi Omar

Minister of Justice Mr Hussein Ahmed Aideed

Minister of Labour and Family Affairs Mr Mahmud Ahmed Barre 'Garad'

Minister of the presidency Mr Hirsi Haji Ali

Deputy speaker of parliament MP Bashe Mohamed Farah and

UCID party leader Eng. Feisal Ali Warabe

While the speaker of parliament and leader of the opposition party Wadani MP Abdirahman Irro who is currently in Europe was not in the list distributed by the presidential press service it is anticipated that he shall link with the main entourage in Turkey

Turkey is seen as the top power house for the AL0OIC Islamic Nations. This is indeed highly important meeting between the two negotiating Somalis whose seperate agendas are already well known and fully documented by the IC World players.In addition to Turkey the UK is also the other main partner of the two Somalis future political handling. As Turkey and the UK have special interests in Somaliland and Somalia, am encouraged that the talks would be 0itful and produce good results Insha'Allah.

Can't help but feel the Somaliland regime is going about this all wrong. They need to demand a referendum from Somalia and the IC, and stop with these pointless meetings which are only there to stall for time and maintain the status quo until Somalia is in a more favourable position. I believe it to be foolish to wait till that point. I suggest Somaliland take advantage of Somalia's political turmoil and pursue recognition much more aggressively!

I 0lly supported the idea of somaliland been an independent country. But after seen this i started douting about my support. Somalia is who needs this talk with somaliland. So somaliland should have made it demands at there own capital. If this matter was about somaliland, and you would have asked somalia to join they would have never showed up. now this is loud and clear shows that somaliland will and can never servive without somalia holding the hands of somaliland. If you cant stand for something you will never be able to stand for anythiing.
