Press Release Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Republic of Somaliland
On April 10, 2009, Eritrean Foreign Ministry issued a press release in

that the Government of Eritrea deliberately over looks the historical as

characterized as being part and parcel of Somalia’s unresolved conflict by
engaging an endless proxy war.
On several occasions Somaliland apprehended red-handedly dozens of
individuals trained by Asmara to disrupt the peace and tranquility of the
Finally, Somaliland urges the Asmara regime to respect the will of the
people of Somaliland and avoid interfering issues related to Somaliland.
