Seattle, September 30, 2006 (SL Times) – On Saturday, September 23, the first deputy Speaker of Somaliland’s parliament, Mr. Abdiaziz Samale met with Somaliland’s community in the Pacific North West (Seattle). The meeting took place at the meeting hall of Somaliland Society. Although it coincided with the first day of Ramadan, the meeting was well attended. Mr. Samale stressed the importance of dialogue, consultation and mutual respect. He said these are the values that allowed Somaliland to overcome many obstacles, and he was certain that these same values will help Somaliland deal with current problems. Mr. Samale used illustrations from the holy Quran and public life to make his point. Particularly touching was the story of prophet Suleiman and the hoopoe which Mr. Samale invoked to show how important it is to discuss and consult with others before making important decisions.

The program for the evening was as follows:

Welcome Remarks by the President of NW Somaliland Society, Mr. Jamal Gabobe
