(MENAFN – Somali Land Sun) Somaliland quest for recognition

Somalilandsun- SOMALILAND BECOME AN INDEPENDENT COUNTRY ON 26TH JUNE, 1960 WITH DEFINED BORDERS AND WAS RECOGNIZED BY MORE THAN 34 COUNTRIES INCLUDING ALL THE
THEN SUPER POWERS.

SOMALILAND IS DEMANDING TO REINSTATE ITS ORIGINAL BORDERS FROM JUNE
26TH, 1960. NOTHING MORE NOTHING LESS.

THE UNION TO FORM THE DEFUNCT SOMALI REPUBLIC FAILED AND SOMALILAND HAS
WITHDRAWN, JUST LIKE SENEGAL AND GAMBIA, JUST LIKE EGYPT AND SYRIA DID
FROM THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC, JUST LIKE CZECH AND SLOVAKIA.

SOMALILAND’S CASE IS NOT ONE OF ‘SECESSIONIST’, LIKE BIAFRA IN
NIGERIA OR KATANGA IN THE CONGO DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC, CASAMANCE IN
SENEGAL, NOR CABINDA IN ANGOLA.

IT WAS EXACTLY LIKE THE UNION BETWEEN TANGANYIKA AND ZANZIBAR WHICH
FORMED THE STILL EXISTING TANZANIA. WITH TWO EXCEPTIONS, THE UNION TO
FORM THE DEFUNCT ‘SOMALI REPUBLIC’ WAS NEVER RATIFIED AND IT’S
CONSTITUTION WAS OVERWHELMINGLY REJECTED IN SOMALILAND.

THIS SOVEREIGN INDEPENDENT NATION, SOMALILAND, FORMED A UNION WITH
ANOTHER INDEPENDENT NATION, SOMALIA, WITH THE HOPE OF UNITING ALL THE
FIVE SOMALI REGIONS IN THE HORN OF AFRICA; DJIBOUTI, HAWD & OGADEN AND
THE NORTHERN FRONTIER DISTRICT.

THAT VISION WAS NOT REALIZED AND SUBSEQUENTLY THE UNION BECOME
UNBALANCED, UNJUST AND EVENTUALLY LED TO A CIVIL WAR WHICH ENDED IN
1991.

Ahmed Kheyre

SOMALILAND HAS SINCE THEN BEEN A DE-FACTO STATE AWAITING DE-JURE
RECOGNITION. THAT IN A NUTSHELL, IS THE SOMALILAND CASE.
