    Somali Magazine – Turkey and Somalia have inked a defense cooperation pact amidst persisting tensions in the Horn of Africa over a contentious agreement between Ethiopia and the breakaway territory of Somaliland, according to Türkiye’s Defense Ministry.

    The Defense and Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement was signed by Turkish Defense Minister Yasar Guler and his Somali counterpart, Abdulkadir Mohamed Nur, during an official visit to Ankara.

    “The agreement we signed today involves cooperation in the fight against terrorism and military-financial cooperation,” Nur said at a joint press briefing. “We believe that the agreement will contribute greatly to Somalia.”

    Guler praised the two defence chiefs’ meeting as “fruitful” and stated that the agreement “will further improve” bilateral military cooperation between the two countries.

    “Somalia is an important partner of Türkiye in Africa,” he said, emphasizing his country’s support for the African country’s territorial integrity and sovereignty.
