Please note that despite its claim to independence, according to the United Nations, Somaliland is not recognized as a sovereign state or country but recognized as part of Somalia. Puntland is also still regarded as part of Somalia. Because of the de facto autonomous or semi-autonomous governance of these areas and their particular experiences of mixed migration, RMMS is listing the areas individually.
