SOMALILAND COUNTRY PROFILE
Somaliland Republic

Published: 08-MAR-05

Somaliland is a former British protectorate. This Muslim state achieved full independence from the United Kingdom on 26th June 1960. On 1 July 1960, the State of Somaliland united with Somalia, creating the Somali Republic.

The Republic of Somaliland restored its “independence” on 18 May 1991 after a protracted war and following the total collapse of the Somali Republic. Internationally it is still not recognised as an independent state, although the Republic insists that constitutionally it has a multi-party system.

Its boundaries are defined by the Gulf of Aden to the north, Somalia in the east, the Federal Republic of Ethiopia in the south and west, and the Republic of Djibouti in the northwest. It lies between latitudes 8º and 11º 27’ north and longitudes 42º 35’ and 49º east, with mountains rising to six and seven thousand feet in the centre and in the east of the country respectively.
