A high-level delegation led by Ethiopian Finance minister Ahmed Shide has arrived in Hargeisa for an official state visit.

The visit comes a day after  President Bihi Abdi turned down a visit by President of Somalia Mohamed Abdilahi Farmajo, which was reportedly proposed by Ethiopian Prime minister Abiy Ahmed.

Addressing a joint session of Parliament in Hargeisa, President Bihi said: “We will not allow President Farmaajo to come to Hargeisa”.

On 15 February,  Unconfirmed source indicates a proposed visit to Hargeisa by Ethiopian PM Abiy Ahmed and Somalia President Mohamed Abdilahi Farmaajo on the initiative of Ethiopian Prime minister.

 Bihi and Farmajo met Ethiopia for first-ever high-level face-to-face meeting  brokered by Ethiopian Prime minister Dr Abiy Ahmed Ali.
