Ethiopian-Eritrean border row “solved:”Issaias Afeworki

DJIBOUTI, 11/15 - The simmering border row between arch-foes Eritrea and Ethiopia is a “solved problem,” Eritrean President Issaias Afeworki said.A day after the independent Eritrea Ethiopia Boundary Commission announced plans to demarcate the contentious border on paper, Issaias said the 2000 Algiers peace agreement and the 2002 border ruling ended the problem.

“The border problem is a solved problem,” Issaias told AFP in an interview on Wednesday, reiterating Asmara`s long-held position that the independent border commission`s ruling is final and binding.

“The Algiers agreement was signed with the international community participating to solve the border dispute,” he said.

Addis Ababa and Eritrea have tussled over the frontier even after the end of the internecine 1998-2000 border war that claimed some 80,000 people with Ethiopia calling for review of the panel`s ruling.

Ethiopia argues that the ruling that awarded the flash point town of Badme to Eritrea risks splitting families on either sides of the border.

    I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY “BLOGGING” ETHIOPIANS CANNOT COMMUNICATE IN A CIVILIZED MANNER. WE DO NOT HAVE TO CURSE OR COME UP WITH DEFAMATORY REMARKS TO PROVE AN ASSERTION. HOW WE EXPRESS OUR THOUGHTS REFLECT OUR TRUE CHARACTER. AS AN ETHIOPIAN I AM ASHAMED THAT MY COMPATRIOTS COMMUNICATE WITH SUCH VULGARITY. PLEASE, DO NOT FORGET THAT NO ETHIOPIAN IS MORE “ETHIOPIAN” THAN ANOTHER. OUR SEMANTICS MUST REFLECT OUR TRUE MANNERS. AFTER ALL ALL ETHIOPIANS ARE GOODWILL AMBASADORS TO THEIR NATION. LET US NOT THROW MORE SHAME ON OUR COUNTRY.
