Hargeisa, June 22, 2004 (SL Times) – Somaliland opposition parties UCID [Justice and Welfare Party] and Kulmiye [Solidarity Party] issued a statement regarding the Somali peace process that is taking place in Kenya.

UCID and Kulmiye parties said that the international community must respect the sovereignty of Somaliland as an independent nation from Somalia. They added that they support IGAD [Inter-Governmental Authority on Development] efforts of mediating Somali warring factions in Nairobi in order to form a government of national unity in southern Somalia.

The Somaliland opposition parties added that the only way, which is open to the two sides - Somaliland and Somalia - is to have talks as two separate nations, when a new Somali government is formed from the Nairobi peace talks.

The chairmen of UCID and Kulmiye parties, Faysal Ali Warabe and Ahmad Muhammad Silanyo, said that the Somali peace conference in Nairobi is not for Somaliland but only for southern Somalia.
