Confused TPLF Leader Wants to Resolve ‘Border Dispute’ with Eritrea

Remember, the horse always comes before the cart.

Make no mistake. No matter how the TPLF would love to delay the implementation of the border ruling, at the end of the day, Eritrea will regain what is hers anyway. So why need to waste everyone’s time, particularly, opportunities of peace and development to the poor and desperate people of Tigray?

Egypt, Sudan Remain Deadlocked Over Disputes

Cairo meeting of Egyptian and Sudanese foreign ministers fails to achieve tangible progress to patch up differences.

He further added that Egypt’s occupation was done when Sudan was busy to stand in face of insurgency of South Sudan. Continue reading Sudan President Accuses Egypt of “Occupying Sudanese Lands”
