On The Contrary, We Establish Sovereignty
It’s difficult to understand why Somaliland even feels the need to debate whether participating in International Conferences jeopardizes its de facto sovereignty or its hopes for de jure international recognition in the community of nations . After all, whether it is fair or not, nations are only recognized to the extent that they are visible to the international community. Hermit nations do not receive seats on the United Nations, regardless of the legitimacy of their sovereignty. Instead, it is nations who play nice with other nations that receive a spot at the table.

Waa xili nin-jileec ka huleelay dudada oo uu gelin horeba fadalka gooyay, waa maalmo Aan-no hore iyo dakane rag tirsanayay u tafo xayteen aargoosigooda. Waa arooryo iyo fiidad Faaliye iyo Fooxleba saadiyeen inuu soo baxay Min Qab-qable ah iyo Maryo-dhiig! Isku soo duuboo waa Jeer Balo onokoday oo ay biyo dhigtay arlada.

The London Somalia Conference held on 23 February 2012 demonstrated that this year will be a crucial one for the future of Somalis throughout the Horn of Africa. The mandate of the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) will expire in August 2012 and it is unclear what will, or can, replace it. There has to be recognition from all sides of the achievements that Somaliland has accomplished and their aspiration to be a sovereign state. These reflect the determination of Somalilanders to shape their own future in what has proved an inspiration to many Somalis. But our model is our own, and just as we do not wish to propagate it, so we also do not want to see our success subsumed.

Dr Omar declared that, “Somaliland has recently re-engaged with the international community, in order to play its part in solving the ongoing challenges in neighbouring Somalia. Last month’s London Conference represented an important milestone in Somaliland’s diplomacy.”
Before becoming a Foreign Minister, Mr. Omar had been the Foreign Affairs Spokesman of the KULMIYE Political party, where he took a lead in articulating a foreign policy strategy that provided a challenge to the one pursued by the government that was in power at that time, and which contributed to his party’ s win in the June 2010 elections.

- The business sector has dramatically changed its rate of growth. Each year it doubles its capital and increase the graph by square digits. In the early growing days, we the people of Somaliland met many problems that shape our characters and behaviour of life. We have lost everything including life, wealth and also our culture values. The regime of Siad Barre and his mercenaries army was brutally destroy all infrastructures of this nation. Beyond that, institutional collapse is the product of all. There was a quick emerging business politics that reaches its peak ever the records of business history. They use the latest approach of marketing and technology. They poured advertisement ads in local mass media and then put-on work by talented and potential workforce those are mainly youth citizens.
With the absent of governmental rules and regulations it is inevitable to face business conflicts, resulting by the weak governmental agencies and bad politicians who administers those issues. The business sector dominates every aspect of life including political decision-making arenas. Thus, unlimited powers are double-edged sword which leads us either social loss or gain. Finally, there is unseen growing politics between businesses and with the lack of strong business laws we are beyond risk.

- The modern day Republic of Somaliland, which declared its Independence on 18 May 1991, is the third incarnation of the territory established by the British in the Horn of Africa in 1884. In June 1960, after more than seven decades as a British Protectorate, the British Somaliland Protectorate received its independence from Queen Elizabeth II. Somaliland hastily united with the Italian ruled south Somalia just five days after obtaining its own independence with the aim of uniting the five Somali inhabited territories namely British Somaliland, Djibouti – under French colony, the Somali region of eastern Ethiopia, the Somali northeast province of Kenya and the Italian ruled south of Somalia under a single flag.
The merger with Somalia
Somaliland’s second incarnation as an independence and sovereign state, was shorted lived. A Royal proclamation of Queen Elizabeth II granted independence to the British Protectorate at midnight 25 June, 1960 – and State of Somaliland came into being on 26June. Despite its plans for imminent unification with Somalia, Somaliland’s independence received internationally as welcome step in the process of African decolonisation and consequently recognised by a host of foreign governments. Five days later, on 1 July 1960, the Italian Trust Territory of Somalia also received its independence. The legislatures of the two countries met in joint session in Mogadishu and announced their unification as Somaliland Republic.

But Somalia’s Transitional Federal Government (TFG), which is still struggling to overcome internal divisions and establish its authority in southern Somalia, also claims sovereignty over the territory, and the issue is becoming an increasing source of tension. The African Union (AU) needs to engage in preventive diplomacy now, laying the groundwork for resolution of the dispute before it becomes a confrontation from which either side views violence as the only exit.

- The Somaliland people are grateful to the UK government for organizing the triumphant London conference on Somalia. We appreciate and applaud wholeheartedly the great hard work and resources put into that conference. Prime Minister Mr. David Cameron, foreign minister Mr. William Hague and the minister for international Development Mr. Andrew Mitchell did not only bring the international leaders together, but have also shown their humanitarian and diplomatic conscientiousness to tackle Somalia’s chronic blight.
The Somaliland people are equally appreciative for the participation and contributions made by their Excellencies the UN secretary General Mr. Ban Ki-moon, Secretary of State Mrs. Hillary Rodham Clinton. We also salute and extend our special thanks to His Excellency President Ismail Omer Gullah of Djibouti, the foreign Minister of Turkey Mr. Ahmet Davutoglu and the Prime minister of the State of Qatar His Excellency Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jabr Al-Thani and all the other heads of states and the representatives of the international organisations.
- The participation of the Somaliland President Ahmed Mohamed Mohamoud Silanyo and his delegation in the London conference on Somalia held on February 23, 2012 was a wise decision. This timely international conference organized by the British government was attended by 55 Heads of state and government and international organizations. The high level delegations included, amongst others, the USA Secretary of State Mrs. Hillary Clinton and the Secretary General of the United Nations, BanKi-moon. In the course of its deliberations the conference considered a 7-point agenda in details, following which it adopted a final communique’ in which it strongly condemned terrorism and violent extremism in Somalia, in the region and internationally. It also reiterated its determination to eradicate piracy.
For Somaliland, the advantages of this conference are self-evident. On point 6 of the communique, the conference declared that “The conference recognized the need for the international community to support any dialogue that Somaliland and TFG or its replacement may agree to establish in order to clarify their future relations “. This is in recognition, in unambiguous terms, by the international community of the serious need for Somaliland and Somalia as two separate entities to peacefully resolve their future relations. It is affirmation by the international community that Somaliland is the opposite number and equal partner of Somalia which is based on historical reality: of Somaliland and Somalia being two separate colonial states under British and Italian rule respectively from the end of the nineteen century to 1960.
- The Somaliland people felt excited and pleased with the Somaliland participation in and resulted outcomes from the London Somali conference. The President of Somaliland and his delegation supported by the unprecedented thundering roar emanating from the massive Diaspora demonstration called for the recognition of Somaliland. The Somaliland people must congratulate all those who made this momentous event a success. However, I want to take this opportunity to express my personal thoughts about an unsung hero. In a recent televised interview in Djibouti, Ismail Omar Geele said this about the British Prime Minister, Mr. David Cameron, in his active involvement of the London conference: “Nin walba wixiisa sheeg – roughly translated: Give everyone their due.” In this article I will try to give Ismail Omar Geele, the president of Djibouti, his due as it relates to his remarks in support of Somaliland in this conference as well as the amicable relationship he maintains with Somaliland and its leaders.
Ismail Omar Geele, along with other fifty-plus delegations from Somalia and members of the international community were present at The London Conference on Somalia at Lancaster House on 23rd February 2012. In his speech at the conference, Mr. Geele spoke highly of the democracy and peace achieved by Somaliland; and he asked the world community to assist Somaliland and Somalia to have a discourse to chart their future dealings. This point was also further echoed in the final conference communiqué, sanctioned by all attendees: “The Conference recognized the need for the international community to support any dialogue that Somaliland and the TFG or its replacement may agree to establish in order to clarify their future relations.” -(1)
