The Somaliland Mission to the UK was established as a liaison office in 1993, two years after the Republic of Somaliland broke the union with Somalia and reasserted its independence. The Mission has been appointed by the Somaliland Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation as the official representation of Somaliland to the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland.

The Somaliland Mission’s main responsibility is to raise awareness of the aspirations of the people of Somaliland to live in their own internationally recognised state, and to reinforce the vision of a peaceful and independent Somaliland amongst the international community. We will continue to build relations with Britain and EU governments, with the aim of encouraging them to support Somaliland’s claim to recognition.

As declared by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the Somaliland Mission to the UK’s primary objectives are to:

• Campaign for the full recognition of our country.
• Attain full diplomatic status for the Mission.
• Build good and friendly relations with the British government, the EU and the international community, and request their support in service of the right of our people to self-determination.
• Keep our public informed about relevant developments, and raise awareness of the issues that continue to challenge our nation.
• Represent the interests of Somaliland and its Diaspora in the UK.
• Facilitate knowledge and better understanding of the international community about the facts on the ground in our country.
• Facilitate trade links between Britain and Somaliland
