President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo who arrived Djibouti last night to meet Djibouti President Ismail Omar Gelle is also expected to travel to Addis Ababa in the coming hours after an official invitation from the Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.
Meanwhile, Somaliland President Muse Bihi Abdi is also expected to arrive today in Addis Ababa of Ethiopia after receiving an official invitation from the Ethiopian Prime Minister.
The rare meeting between President Farmajo and Muse Bihi hosted by Abiy Ahmed remains sealed about their real agenda discussion.
The last round of talks between the two sides in March 2015 in Turkey collapsed and any attempts to revive them have not been successful. Somaliland cancelled its participation similar talks in March 2018 following a fall-out with the Federal Government over the Berbera port row.
Somaliland which declared unilateral independence from the rest of Somalia in 1991 has been seeking international recognition, however, their efforts haven’t so far proved successful.
