Somalia has described an agreement that Ethiopia made with the self-declared republic of Somaliland over sea access as an act of “aggression”.

Reports say Somaliland seceded from Somalia more than 30 years ago, but is not recognised internationally.

It said that Ethiopia agreed to recognise its independence at some point in the future in exchange for military access to the coast.

Meanwhile Ethiopia has not confirmed this aspect of Monday’s contentious deal. Instead, the office of Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed says it signed what is known as a memorandum of understanding “to secure access to the sea and diversify its access to seaports”.
