Turkey denies recognizing Somaliland passport

The Turkish Ambassador to Somalia Olgan Bekar has strongly denied reports that his government has officially recognized the passport of Somaliland administration.

Speaking at a press conference in Mogadishu on Saturday, Bekar said Turkey respects the sovereignty and unity of Somalia, ruling out any attempt to recognize Somaliland passport.

Mr Bekar has stated that Turkish government will fill the gap of the schools and hospitals vacated by Turkish Nile organization linked to the failed military coup attempt in July 15.

Finally, Turkish Ambassador has thanked Somali federal government for its support and expelling Gulan-linked Nile organization staff from Mogadishu after the coup attempt.

Turkey has built recently in Mogadishu the biggest embassy in African Continent, and it is a bulk supporter to Somali federal government, helping the country rebuild its army and economy.
