Somaliland has committed to implementing the sea access agreement it signed with Ethiopia recently, according to Mohamed Hussien Jama Rambo, a member of Somaliland’s parliament.

During an exclusive interview with The Ethiopian Herald, the MP criticized external intervention and stated that Hargeisa would not give in to any pressure. “We have faced pressure from entities that do not appreciate our development. Nevertheless, we resist these pressures and demonstrate our resilience. We honor agreements and Somaliland will not succumb to any pressure,” he added.

Regarding the Arab League’s comments on the agreement, he said that the agreement between Somaliland and Ethiopia does not concern the Arab League and they should not waste their time on such matters. He also mentioned that although Somalia had objected to Somaliland’s agreements with DP World and the U.S., their objection did not work and did not affect the implementation of these deals.

When asked about the reaction of the Somaliland public, he stated that the people of Somaliland are pleased with the agreement. They welcomed it and expressed their happiness. Somalilanders are prepared for business and are committed to working closely with their neighbors to ensure integration, as stated in the constitution.
