Somalia, Somaliland leaders to meet in Ethiopia

MOGADISHU, Somalia – The President of Somalia Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed has flown to Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa after departing from Burundi.

President Mohamed is unlikely to meet with the Break-away President of Somaliland Mouse Bihi, who travelled on Tuesday to Addis Ababa.

The Federal government of Somalia agrees (in principle) the meeting to take place but there is substantial discussion remaining on format, venue and role of 3rd parties, according to sources.

The Somalia-Somaliland talks collapsed several times after the two sides tabled hard conditions.

Despite maintaining law and order, the breakaway republic of Somaliland has not yet gain recognition from the international  community.
