After the embarrassment of severing non-existent ties with the Republic of Guinea as a result of the visit to the country by the Somaliland President Muse Bihi Abdi, the weak federal entity in Mogadishu called together all the foreign envoys based around the main airport to warn them about receiving delegations from Somaliland.
The visit to Guinea, at the invitation of Conakry, by President Muse Bihi Abdi appears to have unhinged the unelected and powerless leadership of the weak federal entity in Mogadishu.
Speaking to the gathered foreign envoys and the media, the hapless FGS Foreign minister, warned that “the neighboring countries of Kenya & Djibouti must not receive the Somaliland president or any Somaliland delegation”.
The hapless minister continued by stating that “Somaliland is part and parcel of Somalia, and we speak for them”. No, it is not and no, they do not.
Once again, it is quite obvious that the delusional FGS entity in Mogadishu, who do not represent a single Somalilander, were not voted for by a single Somalilander and are unable to set a single foot on Somaliland, somehow want to convince the international community that they represent Somalilanders!?. They do not.
The people of Somaliland are represented by it’s president and other directly elected officials, who were voted for in a one person, one vote elections, and not by some hopeless group hiding behind AMISON forces in fortified bunkers.
Somaliland is a de-facto state awaiting de-jure recognition and it’s leaders can travel to any country they choose to and sovereign nations can invite whomever they wish.
