Somalia’s Auditor General Nuur Farah Jim’aale has rubbished the pact between Somaliland and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to set up a military base in the port of Berbera.

Somaliland Parliament on Sunday voted in favour of the agreement which allows the UAE to use the base located in the port and airport for 25 years.

Jim’aale said the controversial agreement was an affront to diplomatic relations between Somalia and the UAE.

“We call on the government of UAE to stop interference of Somali affairs and the division of Somali territory,” said Jim’aale.

He accused Emirati government of signing two deals with the breakaway Somaliland administration without consent of Somali federal government.
