The President of the Republic of Somaliland, H.E. Muse Bihi Abdi, today received in his office the Deputy Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Somaliland and Somalia, Dr. Adan Abdimawla, who is on a working visit to the country.

The meeting discussed issues such as the framework for co-operation between the Republic of Somaliland and the United Nations, first and foremost UN projects in Somaliland, the overall drought situation in the country and Somaliland’s plans for these issues, and the role the UN would partake in the effort.
