Over the past few days we have been reading a series of statements by either
the Nairobi based UN offices or its propaganda wing, the IRIN on incidents,
some of which has no foundation whatsoever.
First of all, the IRIN story about a British vessel hijacked by pirates off
the coasts of Puntland State holds no water. The IRIN story is either a
fabrication or issued to mislead the international public opinion.
Secondly, UN offices in Nairobi have been following developments in Puntland
State of Somalia, and knew full well that the administration was committed to
restoring Law & Order throughout Puntland State territories.
Consistent with that reality and in pursuit of the Government policy for
maintaining safety and security for all is also in the vital interest of the
operations of the international organizations including the Nairobi based UN,
the source of these hasty press releases and unwise statements with regard to
Puntland State situation.
Let us therefore put the record straight:
1. There was no problem in accessing to Boosaaso, Qardho, Garoowe and
Galkayo, the major towns of Puntland State by both local and international
agencies. Recent series of missions and visits by high-level UN, EC, INGO
and USA representatives including the UN Resident & Humanitarian
Coordinator for Somalia to Puntland State encountered no obstacles in
inter-acting with these communities, and thus proves the UN statements on
the Puntland State case doubly misleading.
2. Inaction on the part of the international organizations in
delivering humanitarian, rehabilitation and developmental projects here in
a transparent, accountable and politically neutral fashion is to be blamed
at least in the case of Puntland.
