This is the President’s first visit to the UK since his successful election in June this year. He was accompanied by the Ministers for Foreign Affairs and Planning.

Minister for Africa Henry Bellingham said:

“The UK is proud of it’s historical ties to Somaliland, and we are keen to maintain and strengthen our very close bilateral relationship”.

The UK also has strong links to Somaliland through members of the diaspora, many of whom contribute positively to Somaliland’s development as well as to communities across the UK.

Somaliland has made admirable progress in maintaining relative peace and stability in a difficult region. Somaliland has set a positive example of democracy and can play an important role in enhancing security and development in the Horn of Africa. To this end, the UK is committed to supporting Somaliland’s development and cooperating in areas of shared interest to ensure a positive and sustainable future for Somaliland and the region.
