afrol News, 14 April - Somaliland authorities have lashed on Eritrean government for meddling of other states affairs and fueling instability in the Horn of Africa.

According to a statement released by Somaliland foreign minister Abdullahi Mohamed Du’ale, Eritrea which is an isolated administration, is famous for interfering in other countries’ affairs citing Sudan, Ethiopia, Yemen and most recently Djibouti.

Somalia’s breakaway republic of Somaliland has also claimed that its security forces have captured many suspects trained in Eritrea to bring trouble to peace and security in the Horn of Africa region.

Eritrea which gained independence in 1993 from Ethiopia, has been involved in two serious conflicts on border demarcation with former colonizer Ethiopia and Djibouti.

Eritrea has be fighting with Ethiopia over the flashpoint town of Badme to Eritrea, about 1000-kilometers of frontier. The Eritrea-Ethiopia dispute is part of a set of regional tensions that extends into Somalia.

Tension between the Horn of Africa countries has been high since 16 April 2008 when Eritrean troops raided Ras Doumeira, a disputed promontory on the shores of the Red Sea, as it pursued deserters, which resulted to clashes that killed nine people in June.

Somaliland, located in northwestern Somalia, unilaterally declared independence from the rest of the country 1991 but has not been recognised internationally.
