UAE is set to launch a military operations base in Somaliland in near future.
According to foreign minister from the autonomous Somaliland, the military base is still undergoing construction in Berbera, about100 kilometer north east of the capital, Hargeisa.
Already UAE ships have started docking at its deep-water port.
UAE has already an operational base in Assab, Eritrea. Turkey also recently opened a military base in Somalia, in the southern capital, Mogadishu, which it is using to train SNA troops in the fight against Al-Qaeda affiliated Al-Shabaab.
