Somaliland President Muse Bihi Abdi has described Somalia’s rejection of a port deal the former signed with Ethiopia and DP World, as a ‘declaration of war’. The Somali government recently declared the tripartite agreement signed over the management of the Berbera port in Somaliland as ‘null and void’ arguing that the deal violated the unity and constitution of the country. Somaliland is internationally recognised as an autonomous state of Somalia. Bihi insists that the state has the freedom to approve this deal that will improve the lives of its people, but the Somali prime minister Hassan Ali said that all international agreements must be approved by the central government. The DP World chief executive officer, Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem defended his company’s role in the dispute saying Somaliland has been “independent” from Somalia for 28 years and its parliament approved deal. Somalia has appealed to the Arab League to intervene in this dispute that risks souring relations with the United Arab Emirates. BREAKING: Somalia asks Arab League intervention as relations w/ UAE sour following recent deal by DP World, Ethiopia and Somaliland over Berbera port. Somali Embassy in Cairo tells AL ministers concession is “null and void”, reiterates it violates unity and sovernight of Somalia. pic.twitter.com/77oPUe2pml Somaliland declared unilateral independence from Somalia on May 18, 1991. It has been under pressure to hold talks with Somalia which have so far been futile. Somaliland can boast of an army, its own currency and legal system. The territory has been experiencing stability and economic prosperity and has been influential in the fight against piracy and terrorism in the Horn of Africa. 26 years of diplomatic isolation has made it difficult for Somaliland to have access to loans from the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.
