Somaliland parliament endorses UAE military

Fathi Mohamed, Chief Editor, Bilan Media

Somaliland parliament has passed a motion granting the UAE permission  to establish a military base in the breakaway region.

144 Mps voted in favour of the military base in a voting held on Sunday.

President Ahmed Mohamed Silanyo had called for an extraordinary session on the matter.

The Somaliland opposition had been opposed to the establishment of a military base at Berbera.

The country had been torn apart on the same issue .

Government would not put forth a motion that would cause problems for the country and its sovereignty.

Radio Dalsan managed to contact Minister of Foreign Abdulrahman Omer on the issue.

The ministry told Radio Dalsan he would issue a comment later upon getting facts of the new development on the issue.
