President of Somaliland Shows Journalists a Three Point Memorandum that America and UN had Tried to Prevail Somaliland and Puntland to Stop the Tukaraq War
Hargeisa (The Horn)- The president of Somaliland H.E Musa Bihi Abdi has shown journalist a three point agreement that America and the UN had tried to convince Somaliland government and Puntland state of Somalia to stop the Tukaraq war however the Puntland president Abdiwali Gaas ignored.
The president said this yesterday while speaking to journalists in Hargeisa. He accused the president of Puntland Mr.Abdiweli for breaking the America and UN agreement and the following day invading Somaliland border with his forces.
President Bihi said “The international community suggested in January we hold talks with Somalia which we did without hesitation we talked to Mr.Farmajo then Mr.Abdiweli entered the picture he too wanted to talk to us. The America ambassador and the UN special envoy to Somaliland and Somalia mediated the talks through the telephone on the 23th of May 2018 the American envoy to Nairobi, Kenya called to inform me that the three point Mr.Keating has forwarded should be respected and tomorrow there should not be a war in Tukaraq. However on 24th May 2018 the Puntland militia attacked Tukaraq. Somaliland loves peace so it followed the America’s ambassador instruction to not engage however it was attacked by Puntland.”
Here are the three point memorandums they are as follows……..
- The war has to stop.
- Humanitarian activities should be encouraged.
- A communication channel between the two military chief should be established to avoid confrontations between the two armies.
“Somaliland accepted the American and UN proposition however the Puntland administration brought their army to within 500 meters of Somaliland army in ready to attack our positions. The Puntland army had move from 7 KM distance. The following morning Puntland militias attacked Somaliland army however they were in for a rude shocked the militias was dismantled.
The Puntland president is a poor man being used by the Somalia president Mr.Farmajo to reach his selfish ends. We have intelligence that the Somalia administration claims that Somaliland is a province that has gone rogue and need to be nipped in the bud.
