Why Somalia is so concerned about Ethiopia's deal with Somaliland | DW News

Somalia has condemned a deal reached between Ethiopia and the breakaway region of Somaliland. In it, Addis Ababa recognizes Somaliland as an independent country.

Land-locked Ethiopia signed the agreement to gain access to the Red Sea. The government in Mogadishu has recalled its ambassador from Ethiopia. Somalia says the deal is a violation of international law and is pledging to defend its territory by any legal means.
