“Republic of Somaliland” advised Egypt to redirect its diplomatic efforts towards the ongoing conflicts in its neighboring countries such as Sudan, Libya, and the Gaza Strip. This came as a response to Cairo’s aggressive stance over an agreement between “Somaliland” and Ethiopia, in which Ethiopia will be allowed to use the port of Berbera in the breakaway region, and in exchange, Addis Ababa will recognize Somaliland as an independent state.

The advice outlined in a statement by the “Somaliland” government, suggests that Egypt should have prioritized finding solutions for its immediate vicinity and national security concerns rather than engaging in a dispute unrelated to its interests.

The statement comes two days after a strongly-worded speech by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, where he declared that the agreement between Ethiopia and “Somaliland” is unacceptable to anyone. During a press conference with his Somali counterpart Hassan Sheikh Mohamud in Cairo on Sunday, El-Sisi asserted that Egypt will not allow anyone to threaten Somaliland.
