Eise Keyd

HARGEISA (Somaliguardian) – Somaliland Foreign Minister Eise Mohamud Keyd on Tuesday refused to apologize to Ethiopia over a recent report by state TV accusing neighboring Ethiopia of carrying out an ethnic cleansing campaign in Tigray region.

Asked during a press conference in Hargeisa about whether he would give an apology to Ethiopia over the report, Keyd answered “no” as ties between the separatist region and Addis Ababa continue to sour.

Somaliland state TV also accused Eritrean President Asaias Afwerki of ruling his country for decades with an “iron-fist”.
