The President of the Republic of Somaliland left Hargeisa today for a visit to the Republic of Ireland.
(Medeshi)- The President of the Republic of Somaliland left Hargeisa today for a visit to the Republic of Ireland. The president will stop over in Dubai before flying to Ireland. President Silanyo will also visit London for a medical check-up.
But the local papers have reported conflicting stories which say that the president will directly fly from Dubai to New York to attend the UN meeting on the 28th of Sept. President Silanyo is then expected to meet president Hassan of Somalia in New York.
A matter that has angered many among the Somaliland population is that president Silanyo has been invited to New York as the head of a regional administration of Somalia and not as a sovereign Somaliland republic.
Whatever the truth may reveal could be very controversial.
President Silanyo was elected in July 2010 and his mandate expired in July 2015. Any agreement reached in New York in the coming meeting between Somalia and Somaliland other than sovereignty shall be null and void in accordance to the constitution.
