Why the U.S. Should Recognize Somaliland?

Somaliland President Speech addressed Heritage Foundation, 14 March 2022 Araweelo News Network

In addition, a strong relationship with an independent Somaliland could potentially benefit the U.S., as we try to hedge against Chinese influence in the region. 

On this episode,, Heritage Foundation expert Josh Meservey joins us to explain.
