    Somali Magazine – Somalia and Somaliland’s leaders have convened in Djibouti for a new round of discussions aimed at settling their long-standing disagreement over Somaliland’s 1991 declaration of independence, which Somalia does not recognize. The Djiboutian government is hosting the talks.

    President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud leads the Somali team, which includes the Minister of Internal Affairs, Ahmed Ma’alin Fiqi, the Minister of Commerce, Jibril Abdirashid, and the Special Envoy for the discussions, Abdikarim Hussein Guled. President Muse Bihi Abdi leads the Somaliland delegation.

    The discussions are expected to center on mutual security and economic concerns, as well as the political status of Somaliland, which has been a source of stress and dispute between the two sides. The Somali presidency stated that the talks aim to “restore trust and confidence” and “promote brotherly relations” between Somalia and Somaliland.
