Somaliland Delegation Meets With The Security Council

Nairobi, Kenya, May 28, 2011 (SL Times) Ė A delegation from Somaliland met with the Security Council in Nairobi. The Somaliland delegation was led by the Foreign Minister, Dr Muhammad Abdillahi Omar, and included the Minister of Water and Mineral Resources, Hussein Abdi Duale, the Minister of Defense Ahmed Haji Ali, and the Minister of Labor and Community Affairs, Ilhan Muhammad Jama. The Somaliland delegation handed the Security Council a letter in which it requested the Security Council to acknowledge Somalilandís self determination and independence.
There has been conflicting reports though about the format of Somaliland delegationís meeting with the Security Council, with some reports saying that Somaliland attended a meeting that included the Transitional Federal Government (TFG), Puntland and Galmudug administrations; while other reports contend that Somaliland had its own separate meeting with the Security Council. The format of the meeting is important to Somalilanders because they do not want to be seen as just one of the regional governments of Somalia but want to be dealt with as an independent country.
