Somalia's Prime Minister issued a stern warning to Ethiopia on Sunday, cautioning against any intervention in Somali territories. During a program in the capital Mogadishu, Hamza Abdi Barre stated that the sea access agreement signed earlier in the month between Ethiopia and Somaliland is considered null and void.

He emphasized that if Ethiopia were to interfere in Somali territories, it would face consequences. Barre asserted, "Ethiopia cannot intervene in Somali lands. Any attempt at such intervention will result in their withdrawal with casualties. Somali territories cannot be acquired through songs or threats."

Following Ethiopia's signing of the sea access agreement with Somaliland, which declared independence from Somalia in 1991, the Somali government recalled its ambassador from Ethiopia. The agreement, inked on January 1, granted Ethiopia permission to use Somaliland's coasts for both commercial and military purposes, including the strategically significant Red Sea port of Berbera. Ethiopia was expected to recognize Somaliland's independence upon the finalization of the agreement.

The sea access deal sparked protests in Somalia, with hundreds of people expressing their discontent, including prominent figures. Ethiopia, which lost its Red Sea ports in the early 1990s after the Eritrean War of Independence, has been landlocked since Eritrea gained independence in 1991. This separation impacted Ethiopia's ability to conduct efficient maritime trade.

The diplomatic tensions and warnings from Somalia's Prime Minister underscore the sensitivity of regional geopolitical dynamics in the Horn of Africa.
