    I was planning on making a Somalia affairs megathread on here but I think it would be a much better idea to make one on the Horn of Africa in general with the recent string of diplomatic visits and increase of positive relations between all the nations in the region. With a huge population and blessed with resources, the Horn of Africa has a lot of potential to become one of the leading regions in Africa. Here’s some of the recent developments in the region :obama:

    Ethiopian and Eritrean presidents visit each other and restore relations:
    Ethiopia and Eritrea agree to restore relations



    Djibouti opens Africa’s largest free trade zone:

    Somalia joins COMESA:

    Somalia president visits Eritrea:



    Things have been looking good this year. Let’s hope for more of the same... :blessed:

    Eritrea and Somalia agree to restore diplomatic relations

    Think we can all agree Eritrea is thoroughly exhausted with the fukkshyt. A brilliant thing would be these countries slowly removing themselves slightly from the grasps of the UAE.

    Eritrea and Somalia restore ties, want UN sanctions lifted

    This is incredibly important. Eritrea had sanctions placed on them in 2009 for supporting Al-Shabaab. Technically never fully corroborated by anyone and not really well documented either. If both countries agree on a removal of sanctions it essentially means they're saying the UN is a load of bullshyt.

    Not a good look for the UN overall.

    How many Horners we got out there in Rwanda?

    The UAE is the key external driver behind recent Eth-Eri-Somalia diplomacy, the opposite is happening and I don’t think it’s unquestionably a bad thing if leveraged well.


    I also think they help engineer Farmaajos visit to Eritrea. His Informations Minister said Eritrea will mediate between Somalia and the UAE. I suspect Somalia will restore relations with them sooner than later ( I was calling this in earlier posts)

    I disagree. I am more inclined to believe the pressing reconciliation between Ethiopia and Eritrea spearheaded this more than anything (although the UAE had its hands on that one). It's very difficult to leverage something from the UAE. Sovereignty, land disputes, and trade agreements only exist for their benefit in their eyes.

    They currently have stakes in a stupid amount of ports, and Djibouti lost its DP World renegotiation case. We're talking a 33 percent stake for the UAE iirc. They need to go, fam.

    One thing that I think would be really beneficial would be if we can put up links to authoritative websites, journalists and others who may post about topics on Twitter, histories and other such matters that may give us background. I’ll post some shortly.

    He needs to say this otherwise his people will think he's just an Emirati pawn. Khaleejis are unpopular in Ethiopia.
