By Ambassador Girma Asmerom,

Mr. President;

Distinguished Colleagues;

I would like to thank the Bolivian Republic of Venezuela, in particular Ambassador Rafael Dario Ramirez Carreno, for organizing this important and timely debate on the Working Methods of the Subsidiary Organs of the Security Council.

If not a diversion tactic from the ongoing infighting within the ruling party and the growing Muslim unrest in the capital, What is the message TPLF led Ethiopia wants to send by holding military exercise inside the occupied Eritrean territories?

Sin of Pride … Sin of ‘Akaki Zeraf’ … How quickly they forgot?

Amb. Girma Asmerom

Below is what the ruling TPLF junta has posted on its propaganda website on the 18th of January 2011. Happy Reading ——>  Continue reading Ethiopia undermines Eritrean Ambassador role ahead of his appointment
