COMPLICITY OF THE UN

THE EEBC DECISION TEN YEARS LATER AND ETHIOPIA'S ILLEGAL OCCUPATION:
COMPLICITY OF THE UN
By Issayas Tesfamariam

Today is the 10th anniversary of the Eritrean Ethiopian Border Commission's (EBBC's) decision. A baby born then would have been 10 years old today! The peace loving people of Eritrea and Ethiopia, with the decision, thought that the border issue had been solved once and for all. Their future and hope was dashed when the Ethiopian government with the complicity of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) refused to abide by the decision. Ten years is enough! UNSC as a guarantor of the Algiers Peace Agreement should tell the Ethiopian rulers to leave Eritrean territory immediately. The UNSC should also annul the unfair, illegal and unjust sanctions resolutions (1907 and 2023) against Eritrea. The people of Eritrea and Ethiopia should not be held hostage in order to prolong the life of the Ethiopian rulers. The people of Eritrea and Ethiopia whose culture abhor conflict deserve peace.
