WHAT DOES SOMALILAND MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Somaliland

Somaliland

Somaliland is a self-declared independent state that is internationally recognised as an autonomous region of Somalia.[5][10] The government of Somaliland regards itself as the successor state to the British Somaliland protectorate, which became independent on 26 June 1960 as the State of Somaliland,[11][12] before uniting with the Trust Territory of Somalia on 1 July 1960 to form the Somali Republic.[11][12][13][14][15] Somaliland is bordered by Ethiopia in the south and west, Djibouti in the northwest, the Gulf of Aden in the north, and the autonomous Puntland region of Somalia to the east.[16] In 1988, the Siad Barre regime committed massacres against the people of Somaliland, which were among the events that led to the Somali Civil War. The war left the economic and military infrastructure severely damaged. After the collapse of the central government in 1991, the local government, led by the Somali National Movement, declared independence from the rest of Somalia on 18 May of the same year.[5][17][18] Since then, the territory has been governed by an administration that seeks self-determination as the Republic of Somaliland .
