[Beeldaajiyaha Migiurtinia]#PIM#N&NDown
The title and the first two paragraphs of this article got me feeling bad for SL for some odd reason, we need to free these masaakiins and their triangle state(Ofcourse after singing away their baseless claims of SSC).

Walahi this is straight up sin holding their legs for 30 years and how desperate they are for recognistion and would think an recognized country would help them.:kanyehmm:

Somaliland and Taiwan establish diplomatic ties

A hunt for recognition sometimes makes for strange bedfellows

One is a small, surprisingly successful and relatively democratic country bullied by a larger, dictatorial neighbour which considers it to be part of its own territory.

The other is Taiwan. On September 9th Somaliland, a breakaway republic in the north of Somalia, opened a “representative office” in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan. It followed the opening in August of a similar Taiwanese office in Hargeisa, Somaliland’s capital.

The exchange of diplomatic relations is a coup for Somaliland, which declared independence in 1991 after the fall of Somalia’s last dictator, Siad Barre. Like Taiwan, it is a country in all but name. It has a government, an army and borders. It holds elections and, unlike the rest of Somalia, has been mostly peaceful for the past 30 years. It issues passports.
