Nairobi (ANN/ PressTV) The Kenyan government has expressed support for the recognition of Somaliland, which is an autonomous region of Somalia.
Kenyan Assistant Minister for Foreign Affairs Richard
Onyonka made the remarks in an address to a group of Somalilanders living in Nairobi.
Somalilander Mohamed Saleh, who attended the gathering, said Somaliland deserves recognition since it has been relatively peaceful for years.
“We have managed to remain stable in a very volatile region and this should push the global community to recognize our sovereignty from the bigger Somalia,” he stated.
Somaliland, situated in northwestern Somalia, unilaterally declared independence from the rest of the African country in 1991.
