the World Cup for unrecognised states Somaliland is one of them

SLnnews-County of Nice will not defend title but Kurdistan, Székely Land and Chagos Islands among 12 non-Fifa members taking part.

Somaliland National Football Team

For most football fans, the big event this weekend is the Champions League final. But in Sukhumi, capital of the breakaway region of Abkhazia, attention will be on teams from 12 unrecognised countries – ranging from de facto independent states to autonomous regions with faint hopes of future autonomy – taking part in the World Cup for unrecognised states.

In the opening match on Sunday afternoon, Kurdistan will take on Székely Land, a Hungarian-speaking part of Romania. Other participants in the tournament include Somaliland and the Chagos Islands. None of the participants are UN members states.

The final lineup of the tournament has changed after a number of teams withdrew. The County of Nice declined to participate owing to “organisational restructuring”, the Isle of Man pulled out because the UK government advises against travel to Abkhazia, and the Aymara people from South America could not travel after promised funding from the Chilean government did not come through, according to tournament organisers.

The tournament is run by Conifa, which represents national sides unable to join Fifa, the world football body. The first tournament took place in 2014 in Östersund, Sweden, where the County of Nice beat the Isle of Man in the final and the Arameans beat South Ossetia in the third-place playoff.

Conifa’s general secretary, Sascha Düerkop, said the tournament gave unrecognised states a chance to play international football, and complained that Fifa’s regulations were often unfair or inconsistent.

“It is still absolutely not clear or transparent who can be a member of Fifa,” said Düerkop. Gibraltar and Kosovo were recently made members of Uefa and are thus eligible to play in international tournaments, despite not being UN member states.

“We absolutely applaud the decision that both were finally allowed into Fifa, as surely they are the only FAs that have de facto governmental power of the territories mentioned. But the same is true for the Abkhazian FA, the Nagorno-Karabakh FA, the Northern Cyprus FA, the Crimea FA and the South Ossetia FA.”

Meanwhile the Isle of Man, Jersey and Guernsey have more political independence from the UK than Gibraltar, according to Duerkop, but are not allowed to play international football.

Abkhazia, a subtropical chunk of coastline on the Black Sea that was once a popular Soviet holiday resort, is considered by most of the world to be part of Georgia, but has functioned as a de facto independent statelet since a war after the breakup of the Soviet Union.

In 2009 Russia recognised the territory as independent, and it now functions as a Russian protectorate. Other than Russia, only Venezuela, Nicaragua and the Pacific island of Nauru recognise Abkhazia’s independence.

A spokesperson for the Georgian government said no permission had been sought from Georgia to host the tournament, but added that by definition the Conifa tournament was for unrecognised states and thus “does not entail the legitimisation of the regime in control”.

He added that entering Abkhazia from Russia was a violation of Georgian territorial integrity, and as such any players who did so would be banned from Georgia in future, and a criminal case would be initiated against them.

Matches will be played at Sukhumi’s Dinamo stadium, which has a capacity of 4,300, and in the town of Gagra, a resort town where Joseph Stalin had a dacha. Organisers expect some of the matches to sell out, thanks to demand from locals, holidaying Russians and a small handful of fans who plan to make the trip to support their teams.

Ka dib waxa uu gudoomiyaha shirkadu ka hadlay kormeerkii ay ku sameeyeen saaka dekeda caalamiga ee Berbera iyo qaybeheeda kala duwan, waxanu si gaara u amaanay masuuliyiinta iyo shaqaalaha dekeda Berbera, isagoo si gaarana farta ugu fiiqay Maareeyaha dekeda Berbera Eng Cali Cumar Maxamed (Cali Xoor-xoor), oo uu ku sifeeyey nin aqoon dheer u leh dekeda uu maamulaha ka yahay, kuna haboon shaqadiisa, markuu arrintaa ka hadlayeyna waxa uu yidhi ”waxa aanu soo kormeernay dekeda iyo qaybeheeda waxa aanu ku soo aragnay shaqo wanaagsan, inay meel wanaagsan ku taallo, dadka maamulayaana ay yihiin kuwii ku haboonaa shaqadaasi. Waxa kale oo aanu soo aragnay deked ku taalla meel istaraatiiji ah, oo ah dekedii aanu rabnay in aanu la macaamilno”.

Markii laga soo baxay xafiiska madaxweynaha, waxa wada jir saxaafada ula hadlay wasiirka arrimaha dibeda Somaliland Dr Sacad Cali Shire iyo Agaasimaha guud ee shirkada DP World Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem.

Wasiirka oo hadalka ku horeeyey ayaa ka waramay in weftigani yahay wefti balaadhan heerkiisuna sareeyo, kana socda shirkada DP World. Isagoo intaa uga gudbay inuu sharxo qorshaha iyo himilooyinka laga leeyahay dekeda caalamiga ah ee Berbera iyo heshiiskan la xidhiidhaba.

Wuxuu tilmaamay in weftigu aad ugu farxeen boqashadooda Somaliland iyo indho-indhayntii ay ku sameeyeen dekeda. Wasiirku waxa kale oo uu fursadaa uga faa’iidaystay inuu salaan iyo mahadnaq u diro Amiirka Dubai, Mohammed Bin Rashid Al-Maktoum, madaxda Imaaradaasi iyo madaxda Dubai Ports World, sidii quruxda badnayd ee weftigii madaxweynuhu hogaaminayey loogu soo dhaweeyey imaarada Dubai.

Wasiirku waxa uu u gudbay inuu ka hadlo nuxurka heshiiska labada dhinac dhex maray, cilaaqaadka u dhexeeya Somaliland iyo Isu-tagga Imaaraadka Carabta, waxanu yidhi “Somaliland iyo Dalka imaaraadka Carabta, waxay leeyihiin xidhiidh aad iyo aad u fog oo taariikhiya, ganacsi ayaa inaga dhaxayn jiray muddo badan, dad badan oo reer Somaliland ah ayaa degan oo ka ganacsada oo qaarkood ay leeyihiin dhalashada Imaaraadka”

Isagoo hadalkiisa sii wata wasiirku waxa uu yidhi “waxan soo dhawaynaynaa maalgashiga Berbera, dhismaha iyo horumarka Berbera”. Wasiirku waxa uu intaa ku daray in aanu mashruucaasi ku ekayn dekeda Berbera iyo hawlaheeda oo qudha, waxanu sheegay inay la socoto qaybta loo yaqaano, qaybta ganacsiga xorta ah, isagoo arrintaa ka hadlayana waxa uu yidhi “waxa la socda qaybta ganacsiga xorta ah lagu sameeyo (Free Zone) oo la mida sida qaybta Jabal Cali ee ku taala Imaarada Dubai. Waxa kale oo ku lamaansan Isfahan guud oo aanu kala heshiinay shirkadaas, kana mid yihiin wadada isku xidha Berbera iyo Wajaale, beeraha, tamarta, xagga shaqo abuurka oo labada dhinacba faa’iido u leh. Waxa kale oo aanu kala hadalnay, dal ku galka ay ganacsatadeenu isticmaali doonaan oo ah sharciga ay dalkaa ku geli karaan kuna joogi karaan, waxanay naga ballan qaadeen inay arrintaa ka hawlgelayaan, codsina u qadimayaan amiirka dalkaasi, sidii loogu fudaydin lahaa arrintaas”.

Wasiirku waxa uu sii dhex galay nuxurka heshiiska iyo faa’iidooyinkiisa, waxanu yidhi “Heshiiskani waxa uu dhiirigelinayaa dad badan oo danaynaya inay dalkan maalgaashadaan, marka dalka la maalgashadana shaqo ayaa ka abuurmaysa, taasina waxay inoo suurto gelinaysaa inaynu maarayno dhallinyaro badan oo kuweena ah oo shaqo la’aan haysato, taasoo ah mudnaanta dawladan. Wuxuu u gudbay faah-faahin uu ku sameeyey mashruucan waxanu yidhi, mashruuca wejigiisa hore waa laba qaybood. Qaybi waa dekeda iyo waxa laga qabanayo, waxana weeyi in la balaadhiyo, lana tayeeyo ee maaha uun waa la maamulayaa oo maamulka dekeda hore inagu waynu ku fillan nahay. Waxase weeye in dekeda la waynaynayo oo lagu darayo 400M mark hore, iyadoo mardanbena lagu dari doono 400M oo kale. Mar uu ka waramayey shaqaalaha dekeda iyo mustaqbalkoodu sida uu noqon doono, wasiirku waxa uu yidhi shaqaalaha ka shaqeeya dekedu sidooda ayey uga shaqaynayaan.

Arrintaa dhawr jeer ayaanu waydiinay waxanay sheegeen in shaqaalaha dekeda wax ku kordha mooyaane aanay waxba ka naaqusmayn. Markay arrintaa ka hadlayeena waxay yidhaahdeen in markii ay dekeda Jabuuti ka hawlgaleen shaqaalihii joogay wax ku kordhay mooyee aanay waxba ka naaqusmin.

Ugu danbayn wasiirku hadalkiisa waxa uu sheegay in heshiiskaasi yahay mid dhex maray laba dawladood oo ah Somaliland iyo Isu-tagga Imaaraadka Carabta. Waxaanu u soo jeediyey shacbiga Somaliland kuna dhiirigeliyey inay soo dhaweeyan mashruucan oo uu ku sifeeyey mid albaab dhaqaale iyo mid siyaasadeed u furaaya dalka, saaxiibo badana aynu ku kasbanayno sidaa awgeedna xilka ina saarani uu yahay soo dhawaynta iyo isbarbar taaga heshiisyada noocan oo kale ah.

Dhiniciisa waxa hadalkii la wareegay agaasimaha guud ee shirkada, Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem oo ay ka muuqatay kalsooni iyo weji furnaan, waxanu hadalkiisa ku bilaabay “waxa ii farxad ah sharafna ii ah in aan idinla joogo Hargeysa. Waa socdaalkaygii ugu horeeyey, dareen I taabtay ayaan kala kulmay, manaan moodayn in dalkani intaa leeg yahay, waanan rumaysan kari waayey.”

Wuu sii watay hadalkiisa oo waxa uu yidhi “waxan booqday dekeda berbera iyadoo uu gadhwadeen noo yahay Eng Cali Xoor-xoor wanan ku farxay shaqada ka socotay iyo khibrada ay leeyihiin masuuliyiinta iyo hawlwadeenada dekeda ka shaqeeya, oo aan runtii u qirayo inay hayaan shaqo wacan”.

Socdaalkayagu waxa uu na geliyey kalsooni, waxa aanu ogaanay inay dekedani ay tahay tii ku haboonayd heshiiska taariikhiga ah ee aanu galnay, annagoo ka wakiila dawlada Isu-tagga Imaaraadka Carabta, heshiiskan oo ah mid ay wada galeen labada madaxweyne ee labada dal, markuu madaxweynuhu nagu soo booqday halkaas,.

Waxan labadayada dhinac ku heshiinay in aanu dekeda Berbera ka qaadno sida ay tahay, kana dhigno deked caalamiya oo casriya oo leh aagga ganacsiga xorta ah iyo qaybaha la dhigo qalabka dekedaha. Waa heshiis dhex maray laba dawladood, Imaaraadka iyo Somaliland iyo ummadahooda oo ay ku jiraan ganacsatada labada dhinac.

Wuxuu bogaadiyey agaasimuhu mawqica juquraafi ee dekeda berbera, waxanu yidhi “waxa aanu aaminay halka Illaahay dhigay dekeda berbera ee ay dunida kaga taalo inay tahay meel wacan.” Waxa kale oo aan ku faraxnay sida wanaagsan ee ay ugu xidhan tahay itoobiya oo ku haboon koboca dadka iyo dhaqaalaha Itoobiya oo ay tahay dekedii ku haboonayd inay u adeegto dadkaa tirada badan.

Wuxuu ka hadlay oo kale qaybta ganacsiga xorta ah ee dekeda waxanu yidhi “qaybta dekeda ee xorta ahi waxay noqon doontaa qayb ganacsatada caalamka soo jiidata”. Wuxuu u gudbay inuu ka waramo shirkada DP World iyo Awoodeeda, isagoo arrintaa ka hadlaayana waxa uu yidhi “waxan leenahay 30 sanadood oo khibrad dhinaca dekedaha ah. Waxan maamul ku leenahay dekedo gaadhaya 77 dekedood oo ku yaala 40 dal oo dunida ah gaar ahaan Afrika, kana mid yihiin Jabuuti, Masar, Algeria iyo Senegal iyo kuwo kale ”.

Intaa ka dib waxa su’aalo laga waydiiyey labadaa masuul heshiiska dekeda, su’aasha koowaad oo ahayd halka looga dhaqaaqayo inta imika heshiiska qabsoontay, waxana ka jawaabay wasiirka Arrimaha dibeda waxanu yidhi “waxa aanu hadda kala saxeexanay heshiis hordhac ah. Qaybta heshiiska ee balaadhana waxa ka shaqaynaya garyaqaano insha “Allaahuna” waxa aanu rajaynaynaa inay dhamaato bisha June ilaa July ee inagu soo fool leh”.

Su’aal labaad oo ku saabsanayd in uu door ku leeyahay ganacsadaha reer Jabuuti ee Cabdiraxmaan Boorre heshiiska, isagoo ka jawaabaya agaasimaha guud ee shirkada DP World, waxa uu yidhi “Sheekadan ku tidhi ku teenka ah hore ayaan u maqlay, sidaad adiguba u maqashay ee ku saabsan Boorre”.

Mr. Boorre wax shaqo ah kuma laha habayaraatee heshiiskan. Heshiiskani waxa uu dhacay muddo hore. Waxanu u taagan yahay kana turjumayaa heshiis dhex maray laba dawladood, isu-tagga Imaaraadka Carabta iyo Somaliland. Go’aanka in heshiiskan la galaana waxa lahaa labada madaxweyne ee labada dal.

Waa heshiis dhex maray laba dawladood. Waxa saamilay ka ah (Share holders) dawladda Somaliland iyo Imaarada Dubai. Cid kale waxba kuma leh, Boorrana hadalkiiba daa, wax dan ah oo uu ku leeyahayna ma jirto.

Weftigan balaadhan waxa dalka keenay oo hogaaminaayey Safiirka Somaliland ee Isu-tagga Imaaraadka Carabta Amb. Baashe Cawil Cumar, oo isagu intii la magacaabay xoojiyey xidhiidhka labada dal, waxana weftiga ku soo dhaweeyey magaalada Berbera, Wasiirada,Arrimaha dibeda, madaxtooyada, Maareeyaha Dekeda Berbera,iyo Maamulka heer gobol iyo heer degmo ee Gobolka Saaxil.

Somaliland: 25 years as an unrecognised state Somalilanders refuse to let the lack of recognition for their state stop them from celebrating its 25th anniversary. James Jeffrey | 23 May 2016 10:51 GMT | Politics, Africa Al Jazeera

 

http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/inpictures/2016/05/somaliland-25-years-unrecognised-state-160520112141208.html

Hargeisa, Somaliland – On May 18, 1991, Somaliland declared its independence from Somalia. Twenty-five years on, it still has not received legal recognition from the international community. 

“Even if they don’t recognise us, our independence is by virtue of our existence and by virtue of our liberty,” said Yussef Ali, who had taken his four young sons to join the crowds that lined Independence Avenue to watch the May 18 independence parade under the harsh sun.

Around 500,000 Somalilanders were expected to fill the streets of the capital, Hargeisa, for the big day. But despite the festivities and the resolve of its people, Somaliland is straining after a quarter of a century of non-statehood. Its economy is fragile, making this apparent against the odds success story vulnerable.

“It’s absolutely unfair,” said Saad Ali Shire, the minister of foreign affairs and international cooperation, after a conference the preceding day titled, The Republic of Somaliland: The Case for Recognition.

“We can’t get international credit or foreign investment to build the country and create jobs as we are not recognised.”

After the civil war at the end of the 1980s left much of Hargeisa in ruins and its population scattered – many in refugee camps in neighbouring Ethiopia – Somaliland rebuilt itself in “extraordinary isolation,” explained Matthew Bryden, a political analyst who has been involved in Somaliland since its formation.

Somaliland has demonstrated that rarest of things: self-generated post-conflict reconstruction resulting in peace, democracy and good governance without international intervention.

Since 2003, Somaliland has held a series of democratic elections resulting in orderly transfers of power, exhibiting a level of political maturity that has eluded many recognised states.

But as another anniversary passes, it seems Somaliland cannot rely on its 25-year track record to gain what it so sorely desires.

“Somaliland pursued recognition for 21 years in the absence of a Somali government and was unsuccessful. Now, there’s a recognised government in Mogadishu, [and] Somaliland’s challenge is even greater,” said Bryden.

“Whether they stay together or separate, their populations, economies, even security, are interdependent. They have no alternative to dialogue.”

DP World signs $442m joint venture with Somaliland

Joint venture entity will ‘invest and manage’ Port of Berbera, which it aims to transform into a ‘regional and logistic hub’

Published: 21:20 May 11, 2016 Gulf News

Dubai: DP World, the port operator with terminals from Brazil to China, has signed an agreement with the government of Somaliland to co-invest $442 million (Dh1.62 billion) in the Port of Berbera.

The two parties have signed a term-sheet agreement to form a joint venture company that will “invest and manage” and transform the port into a “regional and logistic hub,” according to DP World statement sent to Gulf News on Wednesday.

It is understood the agreement was signed during a recent visit to DP World’s offices in Dubai by Somaliland officials.

 

Somaliland’s President Ahmad Mohammad Mohamoud was reportedly in the UAE last week. Somaliland is an autonomous and impoverished region in the Horn of Africa.

The agreement is non binding but sets the basic terms for the investment that includes investing $442 million in the port “over time.”

The investment is dependent on the port’s performance, the statement said, and will also include the setting up of a free zone.

The development of the Port of Berbera “will provide an additional gateway for Ethiopia that is needed for its growth and serve other land-locked countries along the east coast of Africa,” DP World said.

In March 2015, Dubai-owned P&O Ports said it had entered into “preliminary discussions” with the government of Somaliland to develop ports in the region.

P&O Ports is a sister company of DP World but does not share the same ownership structure.

DP World is owned by Dubai investment company Dubai World while P&O Ports is owned by state entity Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation (PCFC).

Sultan Ahmad Bin Sulayem is the chairman of DP World and PCFC.

Somaliland is a breakaway region of Somalia that has functioned as an independent state for twenty years without international recognition.
