A French delegation of high-ranking MPs and officials from the French embassy in Djibouti have just arrived [16 March 2009] in Egal International Airport in Somaliland’s capital, Hargeisa.
Officials from the government and others were at the airport to receive the delegation which is expected to hold talks with a number of high-ranking Somaliland officials in the coming days.
Somaliland and France’s relationship have dramatically improved since President Nicolas Sarkozy came to office and changed France’s foreign policy specially in Africa. Now France is the only country to open a foreign commercial bank in Somaliland, and plans more investments, while Somaliland plans to introduce French language classes to it’s education curriculum.
