Somaliland discusses Djibouti expulsion


The leaders of the self-declared Republic of Somaliland have met to discuss the weekend expulsion of their representative from neighbouring Djibouti.

But afterwards, they merely rejected claims by Djibouti that they had closed their common border.

The two administrations have been in sharp disagreement since Somaliland which lies in the north-west came out against the Somali peace conference which opens in Djibouti on Thursday.

At the weekend, the Djibouti authorities closed the Somaliland liaison office and transported its representative as far as their shared border.

Meanwhile, the authorities in the semi-autonomous north-eastern Somali region of Puntland, have arrested three peace conference organisers, although two were later released.

Puntland also opposes the conference.
