Taiwan Opens Representative Office in Breakaway Somali Region, Somaliland

Taiwan opened a representative office in Hargeisa, the capital of the breakaway region of Somaliland in northwest Somalia. “We are very pleased that Taiwan is opening a representative office,” Somaliland Foreign Minister Yasin Haji Mohamoud said at the opening ceremony. Somaliland has appointed a representative to Taiwan and plans to have an office soon, he said. 

Eswatini is the only African nation that has formal diplomatic relations with Taiwan, with most countries pushing for greater political and economic ties with China.
