Somaliland issues statement on political crisis in Somalia, calls for sobriety


Somaliland, in an official statement on the political crisis in Somalia, expressed concern about the current situation between the government and the opposition.

A statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the self-declared independent Republic of Somaliland said:

“Today’s political stalemate appears to pose a serious threat to security and stability in the region and could create further problems.”

This comes amid hot controversy and widespread accusations and counter-accusations in the wake of government and House of the People controversial term mandate extension which seems to touch a wide-scale political raw nerve.
