Berbera Port historically served as a naval and missile base for the Somali central government. Following a 1972 agreement between the Siad Barre administration and the USSR, the port's facilities were patronized by the Soviets.[4] It was later expanded for US military use, after the Somali authorities strengthened ties with the American government.[5]
