The presidency of Puntland issued a statement from a meeting between president Said Abdullahi Deni, his deputy, the speaker of the parliament and former leaders of Puntland and the federal government.
The text shows that Said Deni is ready to continue the war and conflict between the federal government after being re-elected on January 8th 2024.
The statement contained two articles, one of which said, “The conference calls on the Federal Government of Somalia to discuss the fate of federalization and the completion of the Federal Constitution of Somalia, and suspend the ongoing steps until it arrives.”
The surprising thing is, that Deni and the former leaders of Puntland are still visible in the conflict between Puntland and the federal government, but they have not said a word about the most important issue in Somalia today, which is Ethiopia’s desire to seize part of Somalia’s land and sea.
