When China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi spoke with his counterpart in Somalia on Monday, they had a common mission – to resist Taiwanese inroads into what the Horn of Africa nation considers its territory.

They both want an end to the Taiwanese-Somaliland relationship, which Wang said threatened “the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity” of China and Somalia.
During the phone call, Somali Foreign Minister Abdi said Muse Ali promised to push back against the self-ruled island’s relationship with Somaliland, which split from Somalia three decades ago and set up mutual representative offices with Taipei in 2020.
