Puntland breaks with Somali government
(AFP)– 52 minutes ago

NAIROBI — Puntland, an autonomous Somali region home to pirates who threaten shipping in the Indian Ocean, said Sunday it was breaking with Somalia's transitional government until a legitimate federal authority is in place in Mogadishu.

The decision was made during a special cabinet meeting in the Puntland capital Garowe, said a government statement received by AFP in Nairobi.

It said the Mogadishu government "does not represent Puntland in international forums" and called on "the UN Political Office for Somalia (UNPOS) to reconsider its position and support for the TFG at the expense of other Somali stakeholders".

And it criticised "the lack of participation, consultation and representation of the Puntland Government during the 2008-2009 Djibouti Peace Process which led to the formation of the current Transitional Federal Government (TFG) of Somalia."

The statement also slammed "the marginalization of Puntland from the international community's initiatives and funding intended for the reconstruction and development of Somalia as a whole."

It said it "welcomes, supports and endorses the new U.S. Dual-Track Policy which is based on realities on the ground in Somalia" and called for a conference to speed up national reconciliation.

Unlike neighbouring Somaliland, Puntland, which was founded in 1998 by former transition president Abdullahi Yussuf Ahmed, did not secede from Somalia but has its own government bodies at Garowe.

The United States said in September it was seeking to develop closer ties with Somalia's northern breakaway states as part of efforts to undercut Islamist extremists threatening Somalia's fragile central government.

The new policy aims to help the governments of Puntland and Somaliland improve services for their people, by having more US diplomats and aid workers visit them.

Al-Qaeda-inspired Shebab militants control most of Somalia and have been closing in on the Western-backed Transitional Federal Government's Mogadishu quarters.

Puntland’s New Position Towards the TFG of Somalia
January 17, 2011

Considering the lack of participation, consultation and representation of Puntland Government during the 2008-2009 Djibouti Peace Process which led to the formation of the current Transitional Federal Government (TFG) of Somalia;

Considering the lack of implementation on the part of TFG of the Galkayo Accord (23 August 2009) and the subsequent Memorandum of Understanding on Security Cooperation (12 April 2010), signed between the TFG and Puntland;

Considering the marginalization of Puntland from the international community’s initiatives and funding intended for the reconstruction and development of Somalia as a whole, including past and ongoing training of Somali security forces in countries like Uganda, Kenya, and Djibouti;

Considering the TFG obstruction to the timely completion of the Draft Federal Constitution, mainly due to TFG leaders’ unwillingness to actively support federalism for Somalia in violation of the TFG Charter;

Considering the TFG lack of progress on security, delivery of public services and establishment of Federal States in accordance with the TFG Charter;

Considering the weakness and lack of capacity of the TFG leadership to advance national reconciliation and to put forth a viable and visible way forward for lasting settlement in Somalia during and after the current TFG mandate expires;

Taking into account the fact that the TFG has been involved in creating anti-government armed militias aiming to destabilize peaceful regions of Somalia;

In an extra-ordinary meeting, the Puntland Council of Ministers has today decided the following:

◦
◦Praises the international community’s role in providing continued humanitarian and development assistance to Somalia, and especially welcomes the role of the African Union peacekeeping mission (AMISOM) in Mogadishu;
◦Requests the international community not to endorse or cooperate with the TFG as a legitimate representative of Puntland;
◦Proclaims that Puntland shall not cooperate with the TFG until a legitimate and representative Federal Government is established and agreed upon by the legitimate stakeholders in Somalia;
◦Declares that the TFG does not represent Puntland in international forums and calls upon the UN Political Office for Somalia (UNPOS) to reconsider its position and support for the TFG at the expense of other Somali stakeholders;
◦Welcomes, supports and endorses the new U.S. Dual-Track Policy which is based on realities on the ground in Somalia;
◦Remains fully committed to deal separately with the international community on reconstruction, development and reconciliation matters for Somalia, namely: the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD), the African Union, the League of Arab States, the Organization of Islamic Conference, the European Union, the United States, and all donor communities-at-large;
◦Asserts its firm opposition to any term-extension for the TFG under all conditions;
◦Calls for and welcomes to host a broad-based Somali National Reconciliation Conference to be held in Puntland.

I guess its Pundland Breaks Ties to TFG is like saying Pundland her self

Somaliland doesn’t need them, and TFG South Somalia doesn’t need them.

As mater fact Pundland break away and become a county is problem fix for both TFG South Somalia and Somaliland.

For the Pirate thing, it’s a joke. While the real Pirates “ in Harardhere and Hobyo ” gets richer, and go quite, The Pundland Majeerteen, go around the world and show of.

puntland isnt like somaliland they interest in somalia specifically the south they will never take off their hands from south because this will unate the southern tribes
tfg was mj and abgaal partnership and now marehan replaced mj and habergir is waiting to replace abgaal
the meeting between faroole and farmajo in jbouti ended up with nothing as faroole demanded 20% of the tfg income and used makhiri card of them been non represented in the government of farmaajo

The TFG must wake up and realize today's reality, which is, ninkastoo naftaa nabiyoow ummadaa, TFG can't be pretending that we will go on board with them blindly, after we all know what hapen to somali's wealth in mogadisho all been robbed.

Shariifka, we respect him, but if he doesn't respect puntland's leader, then we have no respect for him, that is just today's reality, reality that was created by his own tribe, soo dadkiisa ma'ahan kuwii soomaali dhigay meeshay taagan tahay, in otherwords, dalqal soomaanaynoqon/

Shariif needs to wake up, the sins of the past is not far behind, we will support faroole no matter what, even haduu qilaafka ka dhasho ka hor istaag of his personal wealth, kanax ama ku farax, you must dial the area code first to win us, simple as that, faroole is the leader of puntland, they better win him, or else, it is good bye, awalba iyagaa ina oran jiray war jooga soomaali baynu wadanahay,.

What is Puntland? It is a mere territory that is governed by pirate's! Even the article state's this: "Puntland, an autonomous Somali region home to pirates who threaten shipping in the Indian Ocean,". Somaliland is a beacon of hope in a region full or tyrants, terrorists, and Pirates! Somaliland Held a successful election, arrested 17 Al Shabab members in Burco, and has zero tolerance for pirates. I never heard of a pirate attack off somaliland's shores nor have i heard of anything negative out of somaliland. Puntland is the exact opposite!

Who Brought Italian Colony to Somalia Soil? Darod Majeerteen Arabs

Let me tell you History. Italian Colony, Wanted to Enter Southern Somalia to Colonise, They could not get in from the sea in Merca South Somalia and the face resistance from Biyomaal DIR , and their ashraaf who they mix whit and Abgaal who fought hard and Italians fail to get in South Somalia.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merca

The Arabs Sayid Burqash who was the Sultan of Zanzibar Told The Italians To colonize South Somalia , They need Strategic which was to use his Arab Darod cousins in North Somalia and get them in Mudug Hawiye region to colonise Hawiye and the rest of Somali people..

They Used and send Majeerteen guy Kenediid who came from Arabia by boat to Hobyo and asked Local Hawiye people to allow him for Trade, and slowly he brought His Arab Hadhramaut mercenaries whit guns, and he took over Hobyo City from the Hawiye Nomadic tribes, who had no guns at that time.

When he took over Hobyo City whit the help of His Arab Hadhramaut mercenaries and Italian Colony, he let Italians in father South to colonize Hawiye and the people of south Somalia.

By the time The Hawiye around Hobyo fough back hard and took over Hobyo City from Darod Arabs and Italian colony, it was too late, Italians were Already deep in South and they slowly took over every thing.

Darod are ArabsBrough Italian colony to the Somali Soil it’s a History no one can deny, they use Arabs to invade every Land in Somalia, But hawiye fough back and Arab Darod fail to take over or retain one inc of Hawiyeland.

The Only people they succeeded to take Their land are Our Dir Brothers, DIR lands who gave Darod the woman from the first place.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hobyo

A Majerteen pretender to the throne, Yusuf Ali Keenadid, who had been exiled to the Arabian Peninsula by Boqor Isman Mahamud after a failed coup d'etat, returned from Arabia and invaded Hobyo in 1878 with an army of mercenaries from the Hadhramaut. After conquering Hobyo from the local Hawiye clans, Sultan Keenadid established himself as the ruler of the newly-created Sultanate of Hobyo.[1]

You baboons fought for my freedom? LOL! Where was this talk of somaalinimo when your people were killing us and destroying the country? Just because we are won back our freedom and are now much more successful then cuntland, you want us to risk our prosperity and rejoin a so called Somalia? Puntland is nothing but a mere over used ethiopian paper towel. You have the hub of international pircacy based their c'mon.

No, it was Majeerteen greediness, Isaaq traitornimo, Hawiye's thirst for vengeance and lack of reconciliation, and the "bystanders" caught up in betrayal that ruined Somalia.
