New York, June 28, 2004 (BBC Monitoring) – Somalia's ambassador to the UN, Ahmad Abdi Hashi, has said that there are some Western countries which are interested in restricting the Somali peace conference to the warring factions in southern Somalia, thereby excluding the northern parts known as Somaliland.
Mr Hashi, speaking to HornAfrik from New York, added that nowhere in the [documents of the] UN, Arab League or African Union is it written that the Somali peace conference is [only] for southern Somalia.

He said that, due to anarchy in southern Somalia, the UK is trying to make the conference to be specifically for southern Somalia's warring factions.

The Somali ambassador said that the statement issued by the UN special envoy to Somalia, Winston Tubman, claiming that the Somali peace conference in Nairobi is only for the southern parts, was based on his own view, and was not the official stance of the UN.
