Hargeysa, October 6, 2007 (SL Times) – On Thursday, the Somaliland minister of foreign affairs named new ambassadors for its foreign missions in Europe. Two additional European capitals ( Paris and Dublin) have been added to the ministry’s foreign mission portfolios.

The minister’s statement, signed by the vice-minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Saeed M Noor, said that the ministry has established two new consulates in France and Ireland, and has created new posts inside the ministry’s department of foreign missions, an ‘ambassador at large’ and a special ‘advisor to the minister’ of foreign Affairs.

The statement said that the ministry has called on the services of Mr Muhamud N Fagadhe, the former deputy chair of Kulmiye party and a former foreign minister in Egal’s administration during the 90’s, to be the Paris representative for the ministry.

The ministry named Mr Abdifatah H Ahmed, who used to be the coordinator for the Diaspora and the S/land government, to take charge of its Dublin mission office.

Furthermore, the ministry of Foreign Affairs has appointed Mr Adan M Jibril, a veteran journalist to replace the long time London Somaliland representative, Mr Osman A Ahmed, who has been the Somaliland representative in London since 1991.

In the same statement, Mr Muhammad Aar, who used to be the UK Kulmiye party chairman in 2006 and a veteran of the SNM struggle against the Barre regime in the 1980s was appointed by the ministry as an ‘Ambassador At Large’ for Somaliland. In addition, the statement noted that, “Mr Muhamad E Huble has been appointed as an advisor to the foreign minister for Arab affairs.”

The ministry of Foreign Affairs’ statement mentioned that the decision for these new appointments were made by the Somaliland Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Abdillahi M Duale and was part of the ministry’s new policy to transform the portfolios and scope of the ministry.
