This young policy maker who is a Somali national Mr. Noor Ismael Sheikh recommended on both the government and the people of Somalia to respond in a same way against the tripartite agreement when he was conducted a press conference today in Mogadishu.
His press conference comes after when Ethiopia, Somaliland and United Arab Emirates (UAE) has had an agreement on Somaliland Port of Berbera on March 1, 2018.
The agreement leaves DP World as the majority shareholder in the port, with 51 per cent. Somaliland will hold 30 per cent. Under the deal, landlocked Ethiopia will invest in the port as a trade gateway.
However, the Somali’an young Policy maker Mr. Noor Isma’il Sheikh says“UAE violated Somali sovereignty, after announced the regional administration Somaliland is independent government. I urge all Somalis community should come up with demonstration plan and express their feelings and defend their independence.
He further stated the reason why UAE is doing this interruption is that the agreement between the Federal Government of Somalia and the regional State of Somaliland UAE is worse with fragile ongoing process and try it how to destroy that agreement, and used this issue of Agreement of Berbera port, so they want to intervene and destroy it.
Finally he calls the Somali parliament in this way that the country has a parliament, and is urgently they should come on to defend their dignity and to make a clear decision about the issue of the port of Berbera.
