A lot has been happening in the Horn of Africa countries in recent months. Foreign players including China, Turkey, USA, UAE have increased their interests in the area mostly owing to their geostrategic position on the Red Sea.

External actors and not African states, are obtaining & exerting soft power through multiplication of military bases and other economic development projects in the Red Sea area nations.

Semi-autonomous Somaliland was visited by a USA Congressional delegation this month, pointing to further shifts in being recognised as a state. Our guests are Adam Yusuf and Ismail Yussuf of Somaliland Matters .
