    It seems the International Community (including the UK who should have been the first to recognized Somaliland) is encouraging Somalia to have a false hope that Somaliland is still part of it or will consider to reunite with it. That will never ever happen. We have been there and done that!

    Somaliland was an independent country recognized by more than 35 countries. We blindingly took our flag, liberty, livelihood to Somalia with sisterly love that turned out to be total death and destructions for Somaliland. We eventually fought back, reclaimed our sovereignty and Statehood. It is going to stay that way even if the recognition takes another thousand years. And make no mistake, Somalilanders will fight with teeth and nails to keep it that way!

    So, many countries tried to unite with another countries and when it didn’t work returned to their previous Statehood. So, why not Somaliland?!
