The Ethiopia government has appointed a new consul to Somaliland capital

The new consul will be Mr.Shamsudin Ahmed Roble who once served as Ethiopia’s ambassador to Djibouti and Kenya.

The new envoy replaces the former ambassador Mr.Berehe Tesfaye who had been
the resident diplomat in Hargeisa for more than a decade.

According to the sources, Shamsuddin has been based in Addis Ababa
following Ethiopia’s government move to recall dozen of diplomats across
the globe.

Somaliland and Ethiopia share a cordial relationship since it announced unilateral
independence from Somalia in 1991 but it failed to win international recognization.
