Somaliland is not internationally recognised as an independent Country -they nonetheless have done a remarkable job in creating an independent and viable state
BBC News - Regions and territories: Somaliland
My guess is that the US & EU don't want to recognise it as a Country as sets a precedent for others seeking independence. But IMO a(nother) short sighted strategy by the West - lots of small countries are easier to dominate
large messess - like Somali. Most of Africa
could be divided into countries the size of Belguim.....and if that needs to follow tribal regions for a few hundred years - then so be it.
1/3rd of Somalia
being sorted is better than 100% lawless and Somaliland could be a really useful ally in that region - especially to help keep the lid on the remaining bits of Somalia
. and Yemen accross the water
Short term I would go for a Federal solution to Somali, where the 3 main regions have complete autonomy (except internationally) with the central "govt" made intentionally weak and powerless.......and initially as a UN protecterate to represent the country internationally.
