The self-declared African state of Somaliland has appointed senior diplomat Mohamed Omar Hagi Mohamoud as its first representative to Taiwan, according to a post on social media by Taiwan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) Saturday.

Mohamoud, a political scientist, researcher and political analyst, was named Saturday by Somaliland President Muse Bihi Abdi as the envoy to Taiwan, following an announcement in Taipei three days before that the two sides planned to set up reciprocal representative offices for the first time, according to MOFA.

"We warmly welcome President @musebiihi's appointment of Amb. Mohamed Omar Hagi Mohamoud as the #Somaliland representative to #Taiwan," MOFA said on Twitter.

"A political scientist & senior diplomat, @mohamed hagi will make a fine addition to the country's diplomatic corps."    [FULL  STORY]
