Joint talks will be held on May 31 in Turkey, to discuss technical issues on the movement of people, trade, passports and the representation of the people of Somaliland, which broke away in 1991 in parliament.
Somaliland — the northwestern region that celebrated its 25 years of independence on May 18 — has maintained that it is a sovereign state despite having pushed for global recognition for the past two decades without success.
