Nice welcome. But how does he reconcile the clear contradiction in his foreign policy? Egypt is an big ally to KSA/UAE but also a has very bad diplomatic relations to Somalia's biggest ally: Turkey.

Hey, how do you feel about the conflict between Egypt and Ethiopia? Do you think we could take advantage and profit?

Not sure how. But I don't like both countries, so siding with on to just help the other isn't an option. Our two rivers originate in Ethiopia, so we should be careful not to do Egypt's dirty work. Best way to make use of this is to allow Egypt train huge chunk of military officials and soldiers in exchange for a military base.

I feel like Faramajo was to naive in staying neutral. He should've hopped on the KSA train, Qatar wouldn't hold a grudge against Somalia. Ethiopia isn't an ally rather, an adversary.

He wasn't neutral but actually sided with Qatar. Egypt could be an ally against Ethiopia, UAE trains and finances some security forces in Xamar and KSA is our biggest market. I truly don't understand how this could be a difficult choice. Turkey wouldn't pressure Farmaajo to side with Qatar. Turkey has a long term foreign policy vision for Somalia and wouldn't be sidetracked by Arab drama.

Not to mention that they were historical allies with us, truly in the long run this was very naive. Who cares about how righteous you are or your image? In the end what matters is Somalia and her interests. Now we alienated the GCC meaning we have more adversaries to wreak havoc within the peninsula now.
 
Wait soo you all gonna act like they didnt butcher our national anthem?:dwill:

Egypt is not aggressive enough when it comes to ethiopia, so lets not even discuss that

when it comes to foreign policy the game works differently, we have different interests in respect to different nations. This is the Game of Thrones gambling with one's life and career, it's exciting :gaasdrink: even with the whole KSA, Egypt still needs Somalia against Ethiopia, if they reject Somalia fully they'll just hurt themselves:manny:,

All foreign policy is contradictory and multi-faceted. Diplomacy is national self-interest.

Don't underestimate Egypt's dependence on the Nile. No country is more determined to go all out in Africa than Egypt. They would invade Saudi Arabia if they were the ones building a dam instead of the habashi. Without the Nile water, most Egyptians will die off.

Somalia is vital to Egypt's survival, and Egypt is a sworn military protector of Saudi Arabia against all enemies. That's why Saudi haven't totally wrecked the FGS, because Egypt needs Farmaajo. The FGS is untouchable in the Arab league. All you'll see is minor diplomatic tussles and low-level economic warfare from Saudi's and UAE, that's where it ends though.

I just watched the whole thing. Beautiful stuff wallahi. Whatever we all argue about on here and beyond, President Farmaajo is who the world uses to represent us, until we sort out all inter-regional issues. All our dignity is carried by that man, even if each regional President (governor) believes he's at the top of the food chain. He carries himself with honor.

They worked under table through supporting all havoc that is going right now in Ethiopia. Ethiopian government had arrested Egyptian diplomats in addisbaba and deported for interfering in Oromo protest.

Ethiopian prime minister Hailemariam Desalegn said that there are Egyptian institutions harbouring, supporting, and funding terrorist groups in Ethiopia, during his interview on Al- Muqabla show aired on Al-Jazeera on Thursday.

The minister’s comments came in response to a question regarding his country’s claims that Egypt and Eritrea are supporting opposition groups in Ethiopia.

Desalegn explained that they repeatedly addressed the Egyptian authorities regarding those institutions, and called on them to take suitable procedures against them and investigate them, adding that Egyptian authorities have denied their relation with these institutions.

Among these groups is the Oromo Liberation Front, he noted.

The minister explained that they need not refer to intelligence findings to obtain information regarding these institutions, since the information is already available on the internet and on Egyptian media outlets.

The prime minister said that the support of these institutions will impact relations between both countries, as it targets Ethiopia’s stability.
