Self Declared Government of Somali Land has officially announced that they are siding with Saudi Arabia and the UAE against the State of Qatar.
Foreign Minister of Somaliland Regional Government, Saad Ali Shire made the announcement at Somaliland’s Presedential Palace, following an emergency Cabinet meeting.
Somaliland Council of Ministers Passed the Following Resolutions on the Gulf Diplomatic crisis:
> Somali Land fully supports Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirate’s stance on relations with Qatar.
> As of today (June 10th, 2017), no airline is allowed to use Somaliland’s airspace without the permission of Somaliland.
> Somaliland is called them self as an Independent Country, not a federal state of Somalia. so they claimed that Somali Government can’t grant any permission to any country or airline to use Somaliland’s Airspace.
