Somalia: Somaliland Military Provocation Against Puntland

PRESS RELEASE
26 November 2012

 

Puntland Government strongly condemns Somaliland’s newest military  provocation in parts of Puntland State by dispatching Somaliland forces from the  western part of Sanaag region towards Puntland constituencies and its security  forces stationed in Dhahar District. Local constituencies have staged protests  against Somaliland’s military aggression.

Earlier this month, the same unit of Somaliland forces arrived in Huddun district  of Sool region, intimidating Puntland constituencies to forcefully participate in  Somaliland’s local elections. Puntland Government will not tolerate Somaliland’s naked military aggression  based on its violent pursuit of colonial-era boundaries that have been defunct for  over 52 years.

Puntland Government demands the immediate pullback of Somaliland forces  from Puntland regions, as Somaliland’s latest military action destabilizes the  region and undermines the prospects of peaceful resolution through dialogue.
