Somalilandsun – It is a great pleasure for me to congratulate Dr. Mohamed Abdullahi Omar, former foreign minister of Somaliland, on his appointment by the European Union and African Union as their senior adviser on issues of security and peace in conflict affected Countries of Africa. The appointment is not only a great honor for Dr. Omar but also recognition of Somaliland’s achievements in terms of peace building, democracy and economic development.
Dr Omar is a dedicated, honesty diplomat with excellent diplomatic skills. During his time in office as minister of foreign affairs and as minister of Trade and international investment he contributed a lot to uplift Somaliland’s status.
I wish him all success in his future endeavors.
Mohamed Egeh Uteh
