Tension heats up between Puntland and Somaliland
Spokesman of the UN Assistance Mission in Somalia (UNSOM), Aleem Siddique, said in an email statement that UN has no plan to withdraw Somalia and that envoy was merely describing the current prevailing security situation in Mogadishu.
"We have no intention of leaving Somalia anytime soon; the SRSG was simply making a reference to the volatile security situation that needs to be addressed," Siddique said.
The Statement come after Special Representative UN Secretary General (SRSG) for Somalia envoy Nicholas Kay
The two regional states have been at loggerheads over the control of the Sool and Sanaag regions which are located on their border.
