In this ever-changing and unpredictable geo-political issues as well as global economic, security and diplomatic challenges, a solid and well thought foreign policy is vital for a young and yet unrecognised country, like Somaliland Republic. In a very short time, the current Somaliland Foreign Policy has transformed our country from a completely introverted and isolated country into an internationally respected partner for peace, stability and democracy. The current Somaliland Foreign Policy is absolutely geared up to the changes, needs, obstacles & geo-political challenges facing Somaliland’s people today in the Horn of African Region and beyond.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of Somaliland Republic has beyond every doubt demonstrated throughout his diplomatic vision and skills and sustained achievements a belief in a constructive policy of engagement in international issues for peace, democracy and security relevant developments. Through his exemplary actions and profound diplomatic vision, the Minister of Foreign Affairs has silenced all the pessimistic voices and misconceptions propagated by Somaliland’s critics.
Somaliland’s foreign policy emphasises the importance and the added-value of Somaliland Republic for the international community and especially for the neighbouring countries in the region regarding safety and security relevant issues in one hand. On the other hand, this policy highlights Somaliland’s democratic achievements and experiences that will serve as an example and provide useful lessons for all other African countries to learn and would certainly serve as a model in enhancing stability, democracy and development in the Horn of Africa.
Somaliland’s transnational foreign policy is based upon self-confidence, the trust in their own abilities and skills. This policy is guided by a new modern and profound knowledge on international diplomatic affairs. Unlike its predecessor, this policy remains involved to all major diplomatic fronts without any compromise upon the sovereignty and integrity of Somaliland Republic. Constructive approaches, broad public consultation, breaking through the diplomatic barriers, reshaping the aloof and cautious policy and what formerly was regarded as a diplomatic taboo are the hallmarks that make the Somaliland’s foreign policy so unique and special.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of Somaliland Republic is an unparalleled top diplomat with extensive understanding of global policy. He is a man of vision, a man of purpose who is determined to follow his will-power and belief. He is a man with strong convictions whose mindset tends not to change despite the challenges and obstacles he might encounter.
Thanks to his leading and forward thinking Foreign Policy, the Minister has almost certainly put our country on the map. Our country is today certainly more valued and respected as a Regional and Global Partner for peace, stability, development and democracy.
It was noteworthy and so fascinating to see the brilliant and the most convenient way in which the Somaliland Foreign Affairs Minister has prepared, networked, presented and put forward the Somaliland’s case during the London Conference. In fact, the Somaliland’s delegation hijacked all the attention and the essence of the London Conference. The London Conference was the ultimate test of the diplomatic skills, ability and credibility of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Republic of Somaliland in which he unquestionably has succeeded with the highest rating.
May ALLAH (SXWT) protect the true and genuine patriot!
