Hargeysa, October 27, 2007 (SL Times) – In its weekly cabinet meeting, chaired by President Dahir Rayale Kahin, the Somaliland council of ministers discussed the current situation in the Sool region, and in particular Las Anod, which Somaliland regained control of on 15 Oct.

In a communiqué issued at the conclusion of the meeting, President Rayale stated that it is imperative that the government and the people of Somaliland offer the utmost support to the residents of Sool.

In order to meet the needs of the region, the cabinet unanimously agreed to increase by 2% all government taxes and levies. As well the increase in levies, the cabinet wholeheartedly agreed to donate their individual monthly salary to the residents of Sool.

It was also agreed by the cabinet that in order to safeguard and elevate the level of stability in the region, it is necessary to expand and increase the delegations from both the executive and legislative branches of the republic, who are currently in Las Anod for discussions with the elders and the residents of Sool.
