EPRDF bolsters Eritrean opponents

     The Ethiopian government is working at setting up a united front of Eritrean opponents in order to step up the heat on the regime of Issayas Afeworki.
 
The Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF, Ethiopian governing coalition) sponsored a conference of various Eritrean nationalities at Mekele in the Tigray Regional State in the north of Ethiopia on 7 July. This conference constitutes a first step in setting up machinery to precipitate the fall of the regime of President Issayas Afeworki. It gathered delegates from five Eritrean ethnic groups (Afar, Kunama, Bilin, Nara and Saho) including representatives from organisations participating in the Democratic Front of Eritrean Nationalities (DFEN, Eritrean opposition) headed by Ibrahim Haroon and Cornelius Osman.

The second stage in the EPRDF strategy is to hold a National Conference for Democratic Change (NCDC) gathering all of the Eritrean opposition organisations. This conference is planned to be held in Addis Ababa or Mekele at the end of July, but there is a strong risk it will be put back because the Ethiopian authorities want at all costs to obtain the participation of the Eritrean People’s Democratic Party (EPDP) led by Mesfin Hagos, which for the time being is far from certain. This group is the best suited to represent Eritrean Christians from the highlands, whereas the DFEN draws its membership mainly from the lowlands and the coastal region. This is similar to several other opposition organisations, including the Islamists which recruit from among the Muslim population in the Eritrean lowlands.

Finally, Ethiopian officials in charge of security in the Afar region led by Ghebre Yohannis have tried, with only qualified success, to get the Ugugumo Afar rebels to participate in the 7 July Eritrean nationalities conference. But one of the leaders with whom they had been in discussion who answers to the name of Araboo broke off negotiations, returning with his men into the bush. The EPRDF then turned its attention to another Afar rebel leader, known by the name of Willisa, to negotiate the possibility that the Ugugumo could continue its armed fight provided that its actions are directed exclusively against Eritrea.
 
National Conference: Why Would One Expect a Religious Balance?

Gebreab G/Kirstos
July 22, 2010
In spite of the failure to listen to the voices of reason, the EDA leadership and the National Conference architects and spin-doctors continue to insist that the process of the Conference is winning the hearts and minds of Eritrean Diaspora. But the actions and the thinking that shaped the conference speak otherwise.

AU warns of Somalia civilian deaths
 
 

Aljazeera 21-07-2010
The African Union has warned in an internal report that it risks losing public support in Somalia if it continues to kill large numbers of civilians.

About 5,000 AU peacekeepers are stationed in the Somali capital, Mogadishu, protecting the weak Transitional Federal Government.

The AU's report concluded that the peacekeepers have indiscriminately shelled civilian areas, causing large numbers of casualties.

The organisation called for "urgent attention" to the problem

Kenyan security forces on the border with Somalia have clashed with suspected members of the al-Shabab group, officials and residents said.

Wilson Murungi, the commissioner of Lagdera, said al-Shabab fighters ambushed a Kenyan border patrol and wounded one officer.
"The attack was not a raid inside [Kenya]. Our officers were attacked as they conducted a normal patrol.

Ethnic Formula: The Wrong Medicine

I was never brought up to be a pessimistic person and I will never be either.  In fact I am always an optimistic person as I am a fish by my birth sign for those of you who adore astrology.  But sometimes reality is bitter to swallow.  As the famous senator from Arizona love to boast “straight talk express”, I am about to delve into the recent ethnic gathering in Mekele, Ethiopia.  I am for ethnic rights and all kind of rights but the recent race into ethnic mania raises lots of questions than it shed answers.

Eritrea Calls for End to UN Sanctions

Larry Freund | United Nations 20 July 2010
Eritrea's ambassador to the United Nations, Araya Desta, called the agreement with Djibouti a significant development, but he said the sanctions imposed on Eritrea by the Security Council last year were unjust.
"Eritrea takes issues of peace and security very seriously, and it shall not be discouraged or deterred from participating in meaningful and fruitful discussions that would concretely contribute to sustainable peace in its region.  In light of the steps taken by Eritrea together with Djibouti under the auspices of the Qatari diplomatic efforts, and Eritrea's firm commitment towards peace efforts in Somalia, my delegation appeals to the Security Council to lift the sanctions imposed on Eritrea," he said.

WASHINGTON — The United States should add Eritrea to a terrorism blacklist over its support for an Al-Qaeda-linked group tied to last week's deadly bombings in Uganda, a senior US lawmaker urged Tuesday.

Representative Ed Royce, the top Republican on a House subcommittee on terrorism, nonproliferation and trade, urged US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in a letter to designate Eritrea a state sponsor of terrorism.

UN welcomes steps by Eritrea and Djibouti to end border dispute

un-undsecretary

20 July 2010 – The United Nations today welcomed steps by Eritrea and Djibouti to resolve their border dispute through mediation by Qatar, saying Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon was ready to provide technical support if needed to facilitate a settlement.

Under Secretary-General for Political Affairs B. Lynn Pascoe told the Security Council that the Qatari Prime Minister, Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabr Al-Thani, had written to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon informing him that Eritrean troops had withdrawn from the disputed areas of Ras Doumiera and Doumiera Island and that Qatari military observers had been deployed to those localities pending a final settlement.

This follows the signing of an agreement by Eritrea and Djibouti on 6 June, under the auspices of Qatar, in which the neighbouring countries decided to resolve their border conflict through a negotiated settlement.



Analysts say Eritrea is Not Supporting al-Shabab..

Michael Onyiego | Nairobi
21 July 2010

The International Crisis Group has dismissed alleged links between Eritrea and Somali insurgent group al-Shabab following calls from an United States lawmaker to designate the country a state sponsor of terrorism.

In a letter sent Tuesday, U.S. Congressman Ed Royce advised Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to add Eritrea to the country's list of State Sponsors of Terrorism.

 

WASHINGTON — The United States should add Eritrea to a terrorism blacklist over its support for an Al-Qaeda-linked group tied to last week's deadly bombings in Uganda, a senior US lawmaker urged Tuesday.

Representative Ed Royce, the top Republican on a House subcommittee on terrorism, nonproliferation and trade, urged US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in a letter to designate Eritrea a state sponsor of terrorism.

"The time to tackle state support of Shebab is now, before this menace becomes even more potent and reaches our shores," he said, referring to the group that has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

"That response must include an honest recognition of the destructive role the government of Eritrea is playing in the region by designating it as a state sponsor of terrorism," said Royce.

To  Mr. Tewelde Ghebresselae,
 Chairman of Eritrean Democratic Alliance,
Dear Chairman Tewelde,

Eritrean Global Solidarity takes the opportunity of the convening of the Central Leadership of Eritrean Democratic Council to convey through an open letter its good wishes for your highly anticipated meeting and deeply felt concerns- on issues that are common to all of us struggling in various capacity, to bring an end to the absence of the Rule of law, Justice, Democracy and Human Rights in Eritrea- in an open and transparent manner.

It is our hope and wish this letter will be shared with all member organizations of EDA and the public at large.

It will be an understatement to say that we have been anxiously observing the overall acrimonious political ambiance that seems to be swirling around the EDA umbrella due to the disunity around the issue of the National Conference for Democratic Change (NCDC). We did make an honest effort by posting our first Open letter on June 10, 2010. Once again we are sending another letter as part of our civic duty.

The full weight of our first open letter is the very foundation of our second letter. We still abide by our first letter’s fundamental message: How possible can it be for EDA to conduct a very successful NCDC when the all organizations under its umbrella are not even participating? This vexing question has become more pronounced and central as the designated day of the convening of the NCDC gets closer.

The National Conference for Democratic Change
Dr. Yohannes Zeremariam,
Head of Foreign Office of ELF
07-0510

 

A National Conference is usually held to solve problems, to heal, and pave the way for democratic institutions that would guarantee a peaceful and harmonious coexistence of all the constituents of a given nation. Eritrean National Conference should ideally be held in Asmara, hopefully very soon, after the demise of the dictatorship or at its last death gasps, to start the journey of passage to democracy. It will confer and deliberate, among other things, about nation and state building, peace with ourselves and our neighbours, a constituent assembly, a constitution that will take into due consideration our diversity, elections, a parliament, and the institution of a democratic government.

Conference of the Nationalities?
Mussie Zena 09-Jul-2010

As you may remember my last article on our voice of the voiceless websites was the one about the National Conference. Though, most of the people in the opposition site including the heavy weights do agree on my reservations that I have pointed out by then they disagree with me on why I made it public. The good part is in private we are all in the same page. From the many feed backs that I collected both by e-mail and over the phone I was in a good shape with all my callers and writers and the only difference was my hard steps in making the reservations open; the notion of “kikalah ayneberon”. I some times think I am a wise fool.

I have no idea how many times or for how long should we conceal our dirty truth “kuslis” in dark. I do not know how we have developed and how we can destroy this school of thought about politics is all secretes and that you would only talk about your feelings in private it could be in bars,

On behalf of all members of Association of Disabled Eritreans and myself, I salute you whole-heartedly and dearly. I do not think I am exaggerating if I say that we are witnessing our forefathers’ proverb, zeymote yraKeb “Those who are not dead are destined to meet again.” I consider it a great blessing that some of us are seeing one another after 32 years.  Moreover, we do not evaluate this day lightly because we are laying a great historic foundation for our Association, thus, all of us are proud of this day, for that reason, it is a very special and an extraordinary day.

Praising Eritrea’s engagement with neighbours, Ban urges compliance with resolutions

 
28 June 2010 –Eritrea deserves credit for its recent constructive engagement with its neighbours and the international community, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says in a new report in which he urges the country to provide evidence that it is complying with a Security Council resolution that imposed sanctions for the country’s destabilizing activities in Djibouti and Somalia.

“Despite the Government of Eritrea’s long-standing positions on Somalia and Djibouti, it has recently taken a number of steps towards constructive engagement with its neighbours and the wider international community,” Mr. Ban says in a report to the Security Council on Eritrea’s compliance on resolution 1907, issued in January last year.

“While recent developments represent a move in the right direction, I urge the Government of Eritrea to do more to provide evidence of its compliance with resolution 1907 and the practical measures set out in it,” the Secretary-General says.

The resolution imposed an arms embargo on Eritrea and a travel ban and an assets freeze on Eritrean political and military leaders who violated the embargo, provided support to armed opposition groups destabilizing the region or obstructed implementation of a previous Council resolution that demanded that Eritrea withdrawal its troops from Djibouti.

The resolution followed a request by the regional Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) and the African Union (AU) for the Council to take such action.

The positive steps referred to by the Secretary-General include Eritrea’s reception of the Sanctions Committee in Asmara, its participation in the Istanbul Conference on Somalia, and its engagement in regional mediation efforts led by Qatar on Eritrea’s border dispute with Djibouti.

“I am encouraged that Eritrea is now engaging in an effort to arrive at a peaceful resolution to the border conflict and normalize relations with Djibouti,” Mr. Ban writes.

However, he notes that the UN’s ability to verify Eritrea’s compliance with resolution 1907 is very limited, and expresses hope that the new monitoring group on Somalia and Eritrea, which will be established in due course, will provide for independent monitoring and reporting on the implementation of measures imposed by the resolution.

The Secretary-General also welcomes recent reports that indicate that Eritrea is taking measures to restore its representation at the headquarters of the AU and encourages the Horn of Africa country to make a similar effort in re-establishing its membership in IGAD.

 

“Eritrea’s enhanced engagement with regional organizations and international partners would be an important contribution to strengthening peace and stability in the Horn of Africa,” he adds.

He says that long-term peace and stability in the region require a comprehensive approach to address the interlinked conflicts.

Saying No to EDA sponsored intimidation and harassment

I refute NECS-E baseless accusations!

Dear colleagues of NECS Europe

I read the report of your recent annual meeting and am rather perplexed by your report of what transpired in the organisation at the close of 2009. I am particularly surprised to note that you have accused myself and Mr Noel M Joseph of the following:

  1. Failing to comply with the spirit and procedures of NECS on several issues (and I presume occasions).
  2. Failing to fulfill obligations emanating from the positions accorded to us. 

A lot happened during the months leading up to December 2009, when both Noel and I thought it was impossible for us to carry on within the context that ..

First I like to extend my regards to the chairmen and members of the organizations.

I am writing this letter for three related reasons. The first is the feeling that your organizations are the right organizations, where people like me must turn to with regard to the messy EDA- which unashamedly is thinking of filling the political vacuum once the inhumane dictator in Asmara is dethroned. The second is the urgency to put an halt to the mess of EDA- which has demoralized the opposition, and which poses a real danger to post-Isayas Eritrea. Thirdly, I do believe that your respected organizations have the leverages, and unique opportunity to make a significant difference.

I don't think there is any doubt with regard to the performance

Three Statements Concerning Eritrea

Statements on Eritrea

The US Embassy in Asmara released three statements today concerning the Eritrea – Djibouti Agreement, the recently released Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report, and a reiteration of US policy regarding the Eritrean Ethiopian Boundary Commission.

Eritrea – Djibouti Agreement

The Embassy of the United States of America welcomes the signing of the June 6, 2010 agreement between President Isaias of Eritrea and President Guelleh of Djibouti allowing the State of Qatar to mediate the border dispute between the two countries. The Embassy views this agreement as an important first step toward achieving renewed peace and stability in the region. It is encouraging that the two countries have shown willingness to resolve this dispute peacefully. The Embassy urges Eritrea and Djibouti to work together for a rapid, peaceful settlement.

TIP Report

On June 14, 2010 Secretary of State Hillary Clinton released the 2010 Trafficking in Persons .....According to the report, acts of forced labor (a kind of Trafficking in Persons) occurred in Eritrea, particularly in connection with the implementation of the country’s National Service program.  National Service conscripts are obliged by Eritrean law to serve for only 18 months, but some are forced to serve in their positions for over 10 years under the threat of inhuman treatment, torture, or punishment of their families, the report states.    

Human trafficking exists in the United States, and, for the first time, the United States was ranked in the report.  It was classified as Tier 1 because it is meeting the standards for enforcement and victim assistance as required by the Trafficking Victims Prevention Act, a law passed by the U.S. Congress.  The United States is making significant efforts to address trafficking, and the Tier 1 rating is not a reprieve from further positive action.  

You can read the entire report here. (http://www.state.gov/g/tip/rls/tiprpt/2010/)

 

Eritrea Ethiopia Boundary Commission

The Embassy would like to reiterate long-standing United States Government policy regarding the Eritrea Ethiopia Boundary Commission’s decision.

The Algiers Peace Accord, ending the Ethiopian-Eritrean conflict, must be respected without qualification.  Both Ethiopia and Eritrea agreed to accept unequivocally the Eritrea Ethiopia Boundary Commission's (EEBC) decision as final and binding. The United States expects each government to uphold its commitment to abide by this agreement. The United State urges both parties to implement the EEBC decision peacefully, fully, and without delay.  As the process moves forward, communication directly between the two countries will be imperative.

The United States values its relationships with Eritrea and Ethiopia. We are committed to helping the two nations realize the political freedoms and economic prosperity that their people deserve.  Peace is the prerequisite for achieving these goals.

 


epdp-logo3EPDP Delegation Submits Report to EC on Talks with EDA; Situation Not Changed

 

On 21 June 2010, the Transitional Executive Committee of the Eritrean People’s Democratic Party (EPDP) received and reviewed a report of its delegation to talks in Addis Ababa held with leadership members of the Eritrean Democratic Alliance (EDA) concerning the scheduled holding of a national conference for democratic change in Eritrea this summer.

 

The EPDP leadership thoroughly discussed the report and concluded that there was no new element out of the Addis Ababa talks to help it change its previous decision regarding EPDP’s absence from attending an ill-prepared national conference.

Well, better 30th than 17th, huh?

With each new day,  EDA's conference objective is becoming clear:
",,, this neutralisation of the border between Eritrea and Djibouti comes at a bad time, just when the Ethiopian government wants to help the Eritrean opposition oust President Issayas Afeworki.."


Seyoum Mesfin caught short

     Addis Ababa did not appreciate Qatar’s mediation in the conflict between Djibouti and Eritrea.
Qatar’s intervention in the border conflict between Djibouti and Eritrea was not to the liking of the Ethiopian Minister for Foreign Affairs, Seyoum Mesfin, who is believed to have asked the Djibouti Ambassador in Addis Ababa for an explanation. Ethiopia considers that Qatar’s diplomatic initiatives in the region are pushed by Egypt, which is in dispute with Addis Ababa about the sharing of water from the Nile. Furthermore, this neutralisation of the border between Eritrea and Djibouti comes at a bad time, just when the Ethiopian government wants to help the Eritrean opposition oust President Issayas Afeworki. But Djibouti and Eritrea have different interests in this affair, which have converged in this “armistice”. President Ismaïl Omar Guelleh of Djibouti wants to pacify the situation in the northern part of his country ahead of the presidential election in 2011. Afeworki, for his part, is pleased to secure his country’s border with Djibouti at a time when the conflict with Ethiopia is resurfacing.

The Horn of Africa: Current Conditions and U.S. Policy
Testimony by Ted Dagne, Congressional Research Service
Before the Subcommittee on Africa and Global Health, House Foreign Affairs Committee
June 17, 2010, Washington, D.C.

"A few months after the offer to meet in a third country, Carson’s
Principal Deputy, Don Yamamoto, applied for and received a visa to go to Eritrea, suggesting a change in policy on this issue once again. Ambassador Yamamoto went to Eritrea in May 2010 but the Eritrean government officials refused to meet with him, arguing that he obtained his visa to do work related to the U.S. embassy. Ambassador Yamamoto stated that he intends to go back to Eritrea and has submitted another request for a visa."

Efforts to Improve Relations
Over the past several years, President Isaias has stated that his government is ready to constructively engage Washington on a wide range of issues, including cooperation on the war on terror. Bush Administration officials, however, stated that the Eritrean government had rejected requests to engage in talks with Washington. In 2008, the Eritrean government sent a letter to then-President Bush offering dialogue in order to improve relations. The letter was delivered, with a cover letter by a Member of Congress, to the White House in early 2008...
....
However, in October 2009, Eritrean Foreign Minister Osman Saleh, Eritrean Presidential Advisor Yemane Ghebreab, and U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., Susan Rice, met in New York and discussed U.S. concerns about Eritrea’s alleged role in Somalia. At that meeting, the Eritrean delegation was asked to state that the Eritrean government would end its support to armed groups in Somalia. ..

EDA accused of fraud and violation of its own guidelines in forming the preparatory committee for the national conference. Unless hoodwinked, Ethiopia would  also be considered as an accomplice as it has been pushing for convening of the conference.


Meskerem 061710:  Information shared with meskerem indicates that EDA allegedly committed fraud in selecting the preparatory committee of the controversial national conference. According to the sources and based on the agreements, the EDA would be in clear violation of its own guidelines/rules. The preparatory committee that was created in violation of such rules/ guidelines hence becomes illegitimate, fraud and  illegal.

According to EDA's agreed upon guidelines/rules, members of political organizations can not join or become members of the preparatory committee representing  civil societies.

The following individuals, who are members of the preparatory committee representing civic societies, are believed to be bona fide members and leaders of political organizations and were knowingly selected to represent civil societies.

  1. Mr AbdulRazik Karar: member of leadership of Al Islah (Mejlis Al-Shura) and Tadamun.
  2. Mr. Mohammed Ali Al Haj, member of  Alkalas and Tadamun.
  3. Mr. Goitom from Switzerlad, member and founding member of Bilen Organization ( one of the organizations attending the Mekele separatist conference)

    If the above holds water and since the buck stops at the desk of the EDA, it is responsible for the alleged crime of misrepresentation and fraud.  Its credibility is in question. Moreover, unless the Ethiopian government was hoodwinked by the EDA, it is an accomplice in this crime that has the potential of bringing down the EDA.

Eritrea appoints AU representative

Ansaba 061710: Ansaba website quoting Ethiopian sources reports that the Eritrean government  has appointed the seasoned diplomat, Ambassador Girma Asmerom, its AU representative. It is to be remembered that the Eritrean government has complained to the AU accusing arch-foe Ethiopia of hindering its right to participate in Africa Union summits.

Where will the ambassador set up his office?

It is not clear yet whether the ambassador will go to Ethiopia to set up his office or set his office somewhere else but attend all AU meeting outside Ethiopia and begin challenging the AU and Ethiopia in AU forums.


As Eritrea successfully moves to break the diplomatic siege, Ethiopia is engaged in organizing the dysfunctional Eritrean opposition by funding separatist conference in Mekele and unsuccessfully brokering an agreement between the EPDP and EDA in regards to the convening of the national conference.


The talks between EPDP and EDA ended on 0616-2010 without any result. Although, according to sources in Addis, nothing was agreed upon, the forces of misinformation have already started to disseminate lies that there was an agreement to change the conference into workshops for now and convene the conference in December 2010. 

In another news, Meskerem sources in Germany have confirmed that Mr. Mesfin Hagos, a member of the two-man EPDP delegation, has returned to Germany.

Ansaba websites reports that ethnic separatist organizations sponsored conference will be held in Mekele on June 20, 2010. The four ethnic separatist organizations (Kunama, Afar, Saho and Bilen) have invited a chosen 5 to their conference. The source added that the Mekele conference, facilitated by the four separatist organizations and funded by Ethiopia, will bring together organizations that consider the Eritrean government as an ethnic Kebesa government. Hiruy's invitation has many scratching their heads. The EPDP, Tadamun and the Salvation Front led by Ahmed Nasser are not invited.

Talks on Holding of National Conference Still Continued; Nothing Resolved So Far

15.06.2010

The delegation of the Eritrean People’s Democratic Party (EPDP) in Addis Ababa has confirmed this morning that talks on holding a successful and representative national conference are still under progress and that no agreement has so far been reached.

 

 This corrects the report in Awate.com which hits that an agreement has been reached on the difference for holding a national conference. The Awate.com headline which reads: “EDA member organizations iron out glitches to hold a national conference”.  However, the truth is that no glitches have been ironed out yet.

The Awate news report further states that EPDP “has indicated its readiness to attend the NCDC which is being organized by the EDA”.  The EPDP has never opposed the holding of a national conference. It has been and is still insisting that the EDA has to first iron out its internal differences, and then draft and agree on the required documents and engage itself in a serious preparation that ensures the success of such a historic event.

The EPDP does not look at a national conference as a simple workshop or a seminar.

 

Misleading, for what purpose: "No agreement reached in Addis talks", meskerem sources in Addis.

meskerem 61410: "The title "EDA Member Organizations Iron Out Glitches To Hold A National Conference " posted at awate website dated Jun 15, 2010  regarding the talks between the EDA and EPDP is misleading" reliable sources tell meskerem. The report that overtly implied the capitulation of the EPDP on its demand will not been received well by the leadership and rank and file of the EPDP. A member of EPDP who called meskerem from Addis in the early hours of this morning views such reports as not helpful in the ongoing talks between the EPDP and EDA. 

The article posted yesterday by one of the editors of the website, Saleh AA Youni,  in relation to the same talks that poked sectarian jab at the Ethiopian Prime Minister and the EPDP delegation is considered to be the continuation of the same pattern of destructive and divisive politics of the website.  

These Addis sources tell meskerem that the talks are still continuing and that there has not been any" ironing of any glitch; far from it.”.  A senior member of the EPDP told meskerem that the EPDP had never indicated that it is not ready to attend the conference. The EPDP has concerns in fundamental national and democratic issues and grievances of serious nature. It would like these matters to be resolved before it participates in the conference.

ኪድ ኣይበሎ ከም ዝኸይድ ግበሮ?

Meskerem 061310: Information leakage about issues raised in the Addis meeting and the ensuing personal attacks against EPDP delegation might derail the talks between EPDP and the EDA.

Information leaked to a website by "good authority" regarding issues raised at the talks between EPDP and EDA in Addis, raises fear of breakdown of talks between the EPDP and EDA delegates in Addis.

Although rumors and scornful innuendos have been circulating against EPDP since the initial meeting between these antagonized parties, it now has been brought into the open by the "confidant" of the EDA delegation, the Awate website. Quoting sources of "good authority", the website indicated that the sources of  rumors and scornful innuendos were none other than the EDA delegation itself.

In an article titled, "From Each According To His Bahli..". Al-Nahda, By Saleh AA Younis - Jun 13, 2010", Mr. Saleh AA Younis, quoting reliable sources ( many suspect to be Tewolde Ghebresellasie), writes:
 " I have it on good authority that those who are in Addis Abeba now asking Uncle Meles to help them reconcile with their own fellow citizens spent half their time discussing awate.com and Ali Salim. Oh, mon dieu!"

The irresponsible leakage and its subsequent appearance in a website has infuriated the rank and file of the EPDP.  Fears are mounting that the EPDP might pull out of the meeting on account of lack of trust and seriousness of  EDA delegation. The EDA delegation is made up Mr. Tewolde Gebresellasie, Chair, Mr. Abdalla Mahmud, member and Mr. Kernelios Osman, member.

 

The rank and file, supporters and sympathizers (swelling by the day) of the party are saying "How long and how many times does the party has to be treated this way  by the EDA and its cadres before it says enough is enough?" Why is the party being pursued with such a vigor to join the conference and then be treated as such? ኪድ ኣይተበሎ ከም ዝኸይድ ግበሮ?

It is to be remembered that the EDA preparatory committee, specifically the divisive Bashir Yishaq, was accused by the EPDP for leaking the paper it presented to the preparatory committee. Bashir Yishaq was accused of leaking the paper to some elements in Australia who are not so friendly to the EPDP. The individuals in Australia wrote articles in Arabic language ridiculing and scorning the paper that was presented to the preparatory committee to be presented in preparation for the conference.

It is not possible to clap with one hand. The EPDP does not have a trustworthy, serious and mature partner in these talks. Hence it should not continue in the talks. If the EPDP can not trust the EDA delegation in this sensitive and serous talks, it would be justified to demand the replacement of these untrustworthy and devious delegation members. If not, it would be justified to honorably withdraw from talks, the conference and the EDA itself.

EPDP and EDA Delegations Start Talks in Addis Ababa

mamhContrary to unfounded rumours being fabricated by certain ill-wishing quarters, the talks between the leaderships of the Eritrean People’s Democratic Party (EPDP) and the Eritrean Democratic Alliance (EDA) are progressing well under a normal atmosphere.

The EPDP delegation on 7 June met with a high-level delegation of friendly Ethiopia. The latter delegation also met on 8 June with EDA leadership members for preliminary consultations.

On 9 June, the EPDP and EDA sides started discussions in the presence of the friendly delegation. Among the key areas identified for discussions were:

  • Exploring the issues related to the unhealthy internal squabbling within and among the national umbrella of the Eritrean opposition organizations/parties;
  • Mechanisms of achieving the objectives of a national conference and the basic documents that could be drafted and submitted for satisfactory public discourse before the conference is held; and
  • The modalities of conference preparation through a representative and competent body that can ensure the success of such an historic event. 

" After we are done with Eritrea, Somalia will look like a fight of rowdy fans of a football match" 
Meles Zenawi

A nation betrayed by its sons?....
the act of treason in the making?

Ethiopia's intention regarding the opposition conference, as reported by The Indian Ocean Newsletter see below,  supports meskerem's assertion that the so-called Eritrean Opposition conference is a cover for Ethiopia's evil design against the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Eritrean nation.

 It is becoming clear, with each new day, that the creation of a military front by eight of the 10 EDA member organizations lead by the Ethiopian general and the creation of  parliament-structured organization via the treasonous conference,  is part of Ethiopia's design to occupy Eritrea and  install  a TFG style puppet government in Eritrea, fulfilling Meles' threat...

 

Eritrea opposition "prepares military attack" across the border. Is this a a planned strategy to ignite the border war with Ethiopia on the heels of the failed sanctions?

Eritrea opposition "prepares military attack"


Ian Steele/UNMEE/afrol News afrol News, 9 June

A possible border crossing of Ethiopia-backed Eritrean rebels however could pose a risk of a resumption of the unresolved 1998-2000 border war at a very high cost for both countries.
According to the US-sponsored newspaper 'Sudan Tribune', "eight Eritrean political organisations have formed a joint military front that will enable them to launch a massive and well coordinated military attacks as a strategy to depose President Issayas Afeworki's government."

...Heading for Asmara

Meles Zenawi will no doubt not leave matters there. He will try to push home his advantage, not only against the legal opposition but also against the various Ethiopian rebel groups that are waging sporadic armed struggle against his regime (OLF, ONLF), backed by Eritrea. That is probably the reason the EPRDF leaders keep insisting at the moment that an Eritrean opposition conference that had been on the cards for years should finally be held in Addis Ababa in July. Their idea is to put the conditions in place as soon as possible that could lead to a future overthrow of President Isaias Afwerki.  full text

 

Djibouti Fears Civil War

Written by Benjamin Joffe-Walt
Published Wednesday, June 09, 2010


A spat of violent incidents leads to concerns over growing instability.

The head of the military police is killed. An army ambush on rebels ends in the death of three soldiers. Everyday, a killing is splashed across the news as low-intensity armed clashes spread.
Sounds a bit like Iraq, Darfur, Afghanistan or the Congo?
Nope. It's the tiny, East African nation of Djibouti, which over the past week has teetered closer and closer to civil war.

Jamming and hacking or testing Eritrea's surveillance, defense and electro-military vulnerability.??

Rabita Al-Islamia II: Repackaging An Old Brand To Fit New Ambition

 

By Semere Tesfai, St. Louis, USA - 07/23/2010   


...The Eritrean Covenant think-tanks have kept their lips tight for a reason. They know they don’t have what it takes to defend what they put in print. They know their statement is controversial, polarizing, divisive and full of hypocrisy and half-truth that can’t be defended in public. They are so clever they took the safest route which is, no meetings, no discussions and no interviews just take it as is and use your own imagination approach. When are the Sahos and Jebertis considered free? When do you consider De-Tigrignanization completed? When do you consider De-Ethnocritization completed?  Nobody knows. The only sure thing is, the Eritrean covenant has assured us “The process of Tigrignization of the state must be halted immediately and reversed…”  Could it be Islamization of Eritrea? Could it be Arabization of Eritrea? Could it be a combination of both? I don’t know. It’s any body’s guess. But for sure, it is uniting ethnic Tigrignas behind the PFDJ regime for the wrong reason: fear of the other faith.

Ethiopia’s hijacking of the upcoming conference is becoming more apparent; the conference of  6 religious + 3 ethnic separatist organizations + 1 vacillating  organization of the Eritrean "opposition"


Meskerem 06-08-2010: Ethiopia’s hijacking of the upcoming conference of 10 Eritrean opposition organizations is becoming more apparent as the day  gets closer to the date of the conference. The Ethiopian government owned media is in full throttle in anti-Eritrean news and propaganda in preparation and warm up to the conference that is deviating from the national agenda and steering towards sub-national and sectarian agenda.    

The conference, sarcastically named as National Conference for Democratic Change, is organized, funded and directed by the Ethiopia regime.  The Eritrean opposition , with total number of less than a hundred members, is intent on arrogantly forcing itself upon the Eritrean people as having the legitimacy, jurisdiction and mandate to hold a national conference of a nation with 5 million people and make decisions and sign contracts on behalf of the people.  The fact that these less than a hundred live as refugees, immigrants and citizens of their host countries is not even taken into consideration. Virtual dictators, building castles in the sky…

This sectarian conference is being rejected by the Eritrean diaspora public, especially those of us veterans of the opposition who have seen the capitulation of the opposition from a nationalist opposition to an opposition that has betrayed the national agenda and advanced religious, tribal, ethnic and regional divisive agendas.

The public is clearly saying NO to the conference. The absence of the public from the meetings called by the paid-organizers is proof enough that the sectarian Ethiopia-controlled conference is rejected and condemned by the public. Only two meetings in the whole US of A.

Qatar mediating in Eritrea-Djibouti row Tuesday, 08 June 2010 01:47

By MOHAMED SAEED

DOHA: Qatar’s diplomatic initiatives to broker peace in strife-stricken regions of the world got a further boost yesterday when it was picked to mediate in the long-running border dispute between Eritrea and Djibouti.

Both Eritrea, which gained independence from Ethiopia in 1991, and Djibouti, a former French colony, have authorised Doha to mediate and find a lasting solution to the border row between them.

The Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, H E Sheikh Hamad bin Jassem bin Jabor Al Thani, yesterday announced that Eritrean President Isaias Afewerki and his Djibouti counterpart, Ismael Omar Guelleh, had inked a deal whereby they have authorised Qatar to mediate in the border dispute between their two countries.

“They (Eritrea and Djibouti) have authorised the mediator, the Emir, H H Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, who signed as a mediator and witness, with the full authority to issue an executive working document to the agreement,” the Premier said in a statement, according to Qatar News Agency (QNA).

Eritrean troops have withdrawn from an area they controlled in Djibouti as a result of Doha’s mediation bid.

A Qatari observation force is tasked with monitoring the border between the two countries “until the conclusion of a final agreement on settling the conflict,” QNA reported. The force, made up of about 20 soldiers, arrived in Djibouti on Friday, according to a news agency report.

The texts of the agreement will be exchanged between the foreign ministers of the two countries in Doha soon.

There are seven articles in the agreement, according to which a committee will be set up under the chairmanship of the Qatari Premier with a member each from Eritrea and Djibouti.

The job of this panel would be to resolve the boundary differences between the two countries within the framework of the authorisation given by the two sides.

The committee shall nominate and appoint with the consent of the two sides (Eritrea and Djibouti) an international company to carry out the demarcation of the border between the two countries in accordance with international principles and rules on border demarcation.

Qatar will monitor the demarcation of boundaries between the two countries.

Eritrea is a former Italian colony which was annexed to Ethiopia in 1962 and got free in 1991. The issue of its border row with Djibouti is with the UN as well as the Arab League, where Eritrea has only observer status. Djibouti, on the other hand, is an Arab League member.

Meanwhile, the GCC Secretary General H E Abdulrahman bin Hamad Al Attiyah, in a statement to QNA yesterday welcomed the agreement signed by the Eritrean and Djibouti Presidents which was mediated by the Emir H H Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, who also signed the agreement in the capacity of the State of Qatar as mediator and witness.

In a press statement released here today, the GCC Secretary General said that mediation of Qatar in this regard involving exchange documents between the two foreign ministers in Doha soon, reaffirms Qatar’s vital role in pursuing dialogue and resolving conflicts.

The agreement between Eritrea and Djibouti mediated by Qatar coincides with a new round of Doha negotiations after those initiated to resolve the Darfur crisis, driving home the point of Qatar’s effectiveness in international politics and diplomacy for peace in Sudan, he noted.

Doha bids to end a territorial dispute between the two neighbours

Qatar mediating Eritrea-Djibouti border dispute

 
Qatari PM says Eritrea has already conducted withdrawal from disputed border areas.

 
DOHA - Qatar said on Monday that Eritrean troops have withdrawn from an area they controlled in Djibouti as a result of Doha's mediation bid to end a territorial dispute between the two neighbours.

Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassem al-Thani was quoted by official QNA news as saying that Eritrea has already conducted "a withdrawal from disputed border areas," a move verified by a Qatari observer force.

The Qatari mediation provides for the formation of a committee, headed by Sheikh Hamad, which is empowered to appoint an international firm to demarcate the border, with Eritrea and Djibouti's consent, QNA said.

The Qatari observation force is tasked with monitoring the border between the two countries "until the conclusion of a final agreement on settling the conflict," QNA reported.

The force, made up of about twenty soldiers, arrived in Djibouti on Friday, according to Djibouti press reports.

The long-running border row between Djibouti and Eritrea over the disputed Ras Doumeira promontory on the shores of the Red Sea led to clashes in 1996, 1999 and again in 2008.

Qatar, a small Gulf country rich in natural gas and oil, has offered to mediate in various conflicts, including internal strife in Sudan, Yemen and Lebanon.

A leadership delegation of the Eritrean People’s Democratic Party (EPDP) arrived in Addis Ababa this morning, 6 June 2010, for additional talks with the leadership of the Eritrean Democratic Alliance (EDA) on issues related with a convention of a national conference for democratic change.

 

The delegation consists of Mengisteab Asmerom, head of the EPDP Department for Information and Culture, and Mr. Mesfin Hagos, EPDP Executive Committee member in the Department for Internal Affairs.  The talks are scheduled to be started tomorrow Monday, 7 June 2010.

It is to be recalled that the EPDP has decided last April to withdraw its representative from the preparatory committee for a national conference protesting that the EDA leadership ignored to consider the Party’s concerns about stated shortcomings in the organization and preparation of such a historic and rare event of paramount national importance to the entire people opposed to the dictatorial regime in Eritrea.
