Somaliland Protests “Biased” Coverage Of Berbera Port Deal By VOA

The breakaway region of Somaliland has officially protested Voice of America (VOA) Somali Service coverage of the Berbera port deal saying it was biased.

Somaliland Minister for Information submitted a complaint letter to the acting VOA Africa Executive Director and Chief of Staff of the Somali Service Abdirahman Yabarow, according to Somaliland’s SOLNA news agency.

Last week, Somaliland issued a similar protest to BBC’s Somali Service over coverage of the tripartite port deal that has raised tension with Somalia.
