- The government of Somaliland, the self-declared republic in north-western Somalia, Sunday sought to dismiss a travel warning issue by Britain to its citizens saying it had no information on the specific threat referred to by London.
"We [have] received information from Britain concerning insecurity in Somaliland," Somaliland Foreign Affairs minister Dr Mohamed Abdullahi Omar told the media following a cabinet meeting in Hargeisa, the capital of Somaliland, some 1,500 km northwest of Mogadishu.
"[But] there is no imminent threat and danger from terrorists," he said. Dr Omar said that his government wanted to get out the message to the international community that its territory was safe.
