Ethiopia’s Latest Frontings

Hollow statements and false bravado will not advance peace in the region…abiding by the rule of law will.

BY SOPHIA TESFAMARIAM | SHABAIT

After 16 years of silence on the Ethiopian occupation of sovereign Eritrean territories, there is a sudden barrage of articles about the Eritrea-Ethiopia “border” issue coming from the regime in Ethiopia, its surrogates in the mainstream media and from a notorious, if insignificant, segment of its cow-towing “academicians”.

Analysis: The Algiers Peace Agreement

The UN Security Council as Guarantor to the Algiers Peace Agreement and the ensuing impact on the peace and security in the Horn of Africa

“No mechanisms to revisit the EEBC decision and the first step towards normalisation of relation with Eritrea is if Ethiopia unconditionally accept the final and binding nature of the Commission’s findings” – Lord Eric Avebury

By Ruby Sandhu,

This paper is dedicated to Lord Avebury, liberal Democrat and a Friend of Eritrea. He engaged with the British Government, MPs as well as the Eritrean and Ethiopian Governments on the failure of the Ethiopian Government to comply with the decision of the Eritrean Ethiopian Boundary Commission and the ensuing impact on the people of Eritrea and on peace and stability in the Horn of Africa.

During one of my meetings with him, he requested that I provide an overview of the current impasse. Sadly, I was unable to complete this task for him to review before he died peacefully at his London home on the 14th February 2016. Continue reading Analysis: The Algiers Peace Agreement

Eritrea – Ethiopia: Imminent Peace

FAILING JUSTICE. The Eritrea – Ethiopia Boundary Commission Ruling is on its 13th Anniversary. But being on the run through the avenue of miscarriage until when?

By EEBC WATCH,

IT HAS been 13 years since the final and binding delimitation of the border between Eritrea and Ethiopia. Ethiopia continues to illegally occupy sovereign Eritrean territories including the town of Badme hence jeopardising peace between to the two neighbourly countries.

Eritrea and Ethiopia went to war between 1998 – ­2000. In 18 June, 2000 the two countries, under international auspices, signed a cessation of hostilities and later a Comprehensive Peace Agreement on 12 December 2000 establishing the five ­member Eritrea­Ethiopia Boundary Commission (EEBC).

How Long Can the World Keep Ignoring Eritrea’s Pleas?

After 15 long years, little did we know that such glamorous moment for peace between the two countries could be turned into a shameful act of deceit, betrayal and cover-up

By E Abraham,

A FEW days ago, in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa, there was a gathering of African heads of States at the headquarters of the AU chaired by the newly elected chairman President Robert Mugabe. In one of the sessions, Eritrea’s permanent representative to the AU and UNECA (the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa), H.E. Araya Desta, made a call for the umpteenth time for the AU to shoulder its responsibility (as one of the guarantors of the Algiers agreement) by urging Ethiopia to vacate Eritrean land that it still occupying.

TPLF Still Nursing the Bloody Nose It Received From 1998-2000 War

By Bereket Kidane,

NO one blows hot air like TPLF does because it mistakes its master’s power for its own. Weyane may be feeling a bit more desperate these days because not only did its go-for-broke “Greater Tigray” strategy go bust, it is now coming up on its 24th year of minority rule of the Ethiopian State.

That is a long reign for a minority regime no matter how you look at it.  Continue reading TPLF Still Nursing the Bloody Nose It Received From 1998-2000 War

Sanitizing Occupation is not Creative

Formal Eritrean Government’s Response to the Chatham House Briefing Paper on Eritrea and Ethiopia

Mr. Mosley of Chatham House has tried to blaze a new road by provoking fresh perspectives and approaches of “creative engagement”. But his effort did not produce a novel and viable road-map, hampered as it was, by flawed assumptions and principally, a misguided approach that relegated the pivotal issue of occupation to the back burner.

By Eritrean Centre for Strategic Studies (ECSS),

THE Chatham House Briefing Paper of 10 April 2014 by Jason Mosley, titled “Eritrea and Ethiopia: Beyond the Impasse”, supposedly sets out to challenge and rectify obsolete perceptions of the Horn of Africa’s political dynamics and prevailing reality. This is refreshing and must be welcomed at the outset. Indeed, the author debunks certain presumptions here and there in order to clear the way for what he aptly calls “creative engagement” of the international community visa-vis the two countries, and especially Eritrea.  Continue reading Sanitizing Occupation is not Creative
