Somalilandsun – At a time of rising hostility, animosity and jealousy towards the existence of our nation aimed earnestly at destabilization and destruction of our home country, a government with guts, determination and daring instinct is vital for defending the dignity and sovereignty of its people.

As we are aware, our country is surrounded by geographically precarious, volatile and hate-breeding environment. In this ever-changing and unpredictable geo-political issues as well as global economic, security and diplomatic challenges, a solid and well thought foreign policy is vital for a young and yet unrecognised country, like Somaliland Republic. The Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation has underlined that our country has not only been successful in maintaining its record as a bastion of peace and stability in a volatile region, but has also been a reliable partner to the international community in the prevention of spill over from the instability in the Horn of Africa.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of the Somaliland Republic, Dr. Mohamed Abdillahi Omar has clarified and convinced to the world that our country’s rules and governance are based upon and derived from the ideals that are believed in and lived by our people; which are peace, stability and democracy. It was noteworthy to see the brilliant way and most convenient approach in which the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Somaliland Republic has acted and operated in relation to the security relevant issues and developments of the recent weeks whereby the UK and USA governments have revised travel advice for the Somaliland Republic.

Somaliland’s foreign policy emphasises the importance and the added-value of the Somaliland Republic for the international community and especially for the neighbouring countries in the region regarding safety and security relevant issues in one hand. On the other hand, this policy highlights Somaliland’s democratic achievements and experiences that will serve as an example and provide useful lessons for all other African countries to learn and would certainly serve as a model in enhancing stability, democracy and development in the Horn of Africa.

Somaliland’s transnational foreign policy is based upon self-confidence, the trust in their own abilities and skills. This policy is guided by a new modern and profound knowledge on international diplomatic affairs. Unlike its predecessor, this policy remains involved to all major diplomatic fronts without any compromise upon the sovereignty and integrity of Somaliland Republic. Constructive approaches, broad public consultation, breaking through the diplomatic barriers, reshaping the aloof and cautious policy and what formerly was regarded as a diplomatic taboo are the face-defining that make the Somaliland’s foreign policy so unique and special.


The Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of the Somaliland Republic Dr. Mohamed Abdillahi Omar has beyond every doubt demonstrated throughout his diplomatic skills and sustained achievements a belief in a constructive policy of engagement in international issues for peace, democracy and security relevant issues. Through his exemplary actions and profound diplomatic vision, the Minister of Foreign Affairs has put an end to all the pessimistic voices and false impression circulated by Somaliland’s enemies, inside and outside the country.

The present Somaliland Foreign Policy is absolutely well equipped for the changes, needs, obstacles & geo-political challenges facing Somaliland’s people today in the Horn of African Region and beyond. In a very short time, the Government of President Ahmed Silaanyo’s Foreign Policy has transformed our country from a completely withdrawn and lonely country into a globally respected partner for peace, stability and democracy.

Yes indeed, the majority of Somaliland people and the rest of the world are commonly united and agree to acknowledge and appreciate the commendable foreign policy of the Republic of Somaliland which is Fearless, Forward-thinking and Far-reaching policy.

May ALLAH (SXWT) protect the true and genuine patriot!
