There is a goal for Mustafa Yusuf Ismail. He campaigns in Germany on behalf of Somaliland to gain international recognition for a nation that many people aren’t even aware of.
Although though Somaliland is legally a part of Somalia, it unilaterally declared its independence as early as 1991. In that period, Somalia was engulfed in civil conflict.
The post-independence period explanation is given as a success story that counts. Destroyed by the war, the country had hardly any outside help to build itself up.
The country now has its own democratic government, collects its own taxes, and has introduced its own currency. The security and the situation are more stable than in the rest of Somalia.
International recognition is important. The lack of recognition is a problem for Somaliland because the country cannot become a member of international organizations such as the UN.
Other countries want to establish development cooperation contacts with Somaliland. They often negotiate with Somalia first.
However, Somaliland passport holders often face problems as their documents are not recognized internationally. Although there are countries where Somaliland citizens can enter and whose Somaliland passports allow them to enter their countries.
Mustafa Yusuf Ismail wants to change that. The 65-year-old takes care of improving relations between Germany and Somaliland. He speaks about the future of his country.
