Wednesday, January 4, 2023-Garowe (AX) – Puntland Minister of Data, Eng. Mohamud Aydid Dirir disregarded an announcement made by conventional elders of Sool, Sanaag and Ceyn areas (SSC), who just lately introduced the appointment of the brand new management of Khatumo state.
Addressing the media in Garowe on Wednesday, Puntland’s Minister of Data referred to as the SSC elders’ determination problematic, including that elders can not resolve the way forward for the Sool area.
“We have seen how a decision made by a small group will fail. The SSC was formed in 2009 and ended in Hargeisa,” Puntland’s info minister stated.
The minister stated the one possibility in Las Anod was to battle and that deliberations in town’s future would start after its liberation from Northern Somalia.
Puntland State President Mentioned Abdullahi Deni stated on Monday that every one political and army choices have been on the desk for Puntland to resolve the Las Anod dispute.
“If Northern Somalia does not accept the calls of the people of Las Anod, who demand that Northern Somalia leave the city and the entire Sool region, Puntland is ready to take all possible measures,” Deni stated.
However Northern Somalia President Muse Bihi responded to Puntland’s president, saying Northern Somalia would defend its territory if one among Somalia’s 5 regional administrations invaded. He claimed that the Somali Federal Authorities helps Puntland President Deni to mobilize in opposition to Northern Somalia.
