The City of Sheffield Officially Recognizes Somaliland as Independent Nation.
By MGothPublishedWednesday 02 April 2014 12:30 PM


by Goth Mohamed Goth

The City of Sheffield has become the first city in the world to officially recognize Somaliland as an independent nation this after members of the city council
unanimously passed by 83 members,2 voted against and 1 abstention earlier today.

This historic event was attended by Somaliland’s Foreign Minister Mohamed Bihi Yonis, Energy Minister Hussein Abdi Dualeh, Speaker of Parliament Abdirahman
Mohamed Abdullahi, Somaliland’s Ambassador to the UK Ali Aden Awale as well as several parliamentarians.

On Friday 4 April, Somaliland’s Foreign Minister, Mohamed Behi and Sheffield Central MP Paul Blomfield (Lab) will be speaking at ISRAAC: Somali Community and
Cultural Association in support of Somaliland’s case for recognition

Sheffield South East MP Clive Betts (Lab) has also expressed his support for Somaliland’s independence. In 2009 he asked the FCO to “work with other members
of the EU, with the United States and with members of the African Union to see how we can get recognition for Somaliland.”

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Behi, calls for all Somaliland communities to advocate for Somaliland case -and expressed that the success from Sheffield
must be a role model for all. Mr. Behi congratulated for Somaliland communities in sheffield and others doing the same work in their respected areas.

From my understanding some of the Labour Party MPs and Councillors want the vital votes of Somalilanders in Sheffield in upcoming elections after
they saw the UKIP party trying to gain the Somalilanders votes in this city by promising the same-thing recognizing Somaliland. Labour party Councillors
in this city happened to get the job done before UKIP.

No political impact for Somaliland just for the councillors. For the Somalilanders this news will give them a morale boost, for the councillors this gives them more support (local elections) from Somaliland citizens of Sheffield.

These HJ in Sheff need to understand that Councillors possess 0 power in regards to recognizing breakaway regions there job is to oversee wards in Sheff basically neighborhood watchman/women.
If reer Isaaq of Somaliland proper were serious about their mission they would lobby the British government in London not back water towns in the North of England. But London is to busy with the capital of Somalilands aka Mogadishu.
Do you guys even understand that the British ambassador to Somalia represents you too :lol:
The owner of Dhiigshill could help but hes to busy funding the Royal African society :lol: :up:

Lobbying for educational funding would be best for Somalis in the UK not feeding futile dreams.

Somaliland Hails British Step Forward in Independence Bid

Henry Ridgwell
April 05, 2014

LONDON — A city in Britain has become the first to officially recognize Somaliland’s claim to independence. The vote -- which is purely symbolic and carries no
legal weight -- is nevertheless being hailed by Somaliland leaders as a big step forward in their decades-long campaign to break away from Somalia.

Somalilanders celebrated outside Sheffield city hall after the council voted Thursday to recognize the region’s right to self-determination. Thousands of people
of Somaliland origin live in the northern British city.

Somaliland’s Foreign Minister Mohamed Bihi Yonis attended the vote; he later told VOA of its symbolic importance. “Somaliland has the border, the population
[in favor of independence], the currency, the independence, the elections, the democracy, the rule of law, the human rights record of Somaliland. And I think
they have looked into all of those areas and realized that Somaliland has met the requirements of statehood.”

Somaliland occupies the northern section of Somalia.

The rest of the country has been plagued by lawlessness and violence since the overthrow of Somalia’s leader in 1991. Later that same year, Somalilanders voted
in a referendum to become independent -- a vote that has not been recognized by any nation.

Oasis of peace

Mohamed Yonis calls Somaliland a relative oasis of peace. “We have a proper functioning government and institutions, while the other part of Somalia is actually
burning and having a lot of difficulties as you know -- issues of piracy, terrorism, al-Shabab [Islamic militants].”

Somaliland did gain brief statehood upon its independence from Britain in June 1960. But its government chose to merge with Somalia.

Convincing the world that Somaliland should be recognized as independent will not be easy, according to Alex Vines of London-based policy analyst group Chatham
House.

“Internationally, everybody says it would have to be led by Africa," said Vines. "When you talk to African leaders, it’s like, ‘Well, we might consider it, but we
wouldn’t be the first.’”

Somaliland authorities insist the region’s economy would support independence.

Thriving economy

The port of Berbera lies just west of the tip of the Horn of Africa. It’s a chaotic, dusty trade hub; camels, goats and sheep are transferred from trucks and carts
into the market, to be exported across Africa and the Gulf.

Agriculture is the backbone of Somaliland’s economy; Minister of Livestock Abdi Aw Dahir Ali said the industry can grow even bigger. “It does not export only
livestock from Somaliland. Berbera exports livestock from Ethiopia, from Somalia, from Kenya. So it's a center of export of all livestock from the Horn.”

Somaliland authorities have handed out exploration licenses to a number of foreign oil firms, to the anger of the Somali government in Mogadishu.

The country also could offer an export hub for neighboring landlocked Ethiopia, said Vines.

“It wouldn’t be necessarily against the interests of neighboring Ethiopia. But the precedent of recognizing Somaliland would then add complexity to Ethiopia
itself,” he said.

Somaliland authorities say talks with the Somali government are progressing. Observers say Mogadishu favors unity, though, and few expect any countries to
follow Sheffield’s lead in the near future.
