Speaking about changes in the Horn of Africa the president said “The changes that took place in 1993 are still fresh in our minds Ethiopia accepted the independence of Eritrea. Somalia leaders are opposing the independence of Somaliland. In the 21st century the Ethiopia new governments has buried the hatchet with her foe Eritrea and are working to start a chapter of their history. Whereas the Somalia regime is undermining Somaliland saying that it controls her land, sea and airspace. Furthermore every day they threaten to invade Somaliland borders through military ambushes in our own territory. As you can see this two minds are different.”
