An EU delegation, led by the Nairobi-based regional head, Mr Lutz Salzman, arrived yesterday in Somaliland's capital, Hargeysa.

The delegation included an associate official from the EU's Somali office (Somalia and Somaliland) Joachim Knoth. Meanwhile, an Egyptian delegation arrived yesterday in the country led by the Egyptian envoy to Somalia and Somaliland Halim Salah.

The delegation included representatives from firms dealing with production, reconstruction and some businessmen. The EU delegation's mission was related to some EU projects in Somaliland although there was no official comment on the purpose of the visit.

The officials are expected to take part in the commissioning of an office for roads and general works which was financed by the EU.

The EU delegation is also expected to sign contracts with local construction companies for the reconstruction of some of Somaliland's roads.

Yesterday the delegation met the vice-president, Dahir Riyale Kahin, and Somaliland's foreign affairs minister, Mahmud Salah.
