To the UNSC and the Guarantors of Algiers Peace Treaty

THE EEBC DECISION TEN YEARS LATER AND ETHIOPIA’S ILLEGAL OCCUPATION:
To the UNSC and the Guarantors of Algiers Peace Treaty
By Zeru Woldeab

The UN-Security Council and the Guarantors of the Algiers Peace Treaty should finally do something that will bring peace to the war ravaged Horn of Africa. I am strongly urging you to live up to the legal and moral obligation, and ideals of the UN-Charter. I am strongly urging you to push Ethiopia to implement the final and binding demarcation decision of the Eritrea-Ethiopia Boundary Commission (EEBC) without preconditions or further delay. Ethiopia’s refusal to implement this decision is at the heart of the entire crisis in the Horn of Africa. It is this issue that must be addressed first and foremost.

The Eritrean population, which suffered several decades of repeated UN injustices, is being made to suffer more injustice because you choose to be indifferent. Instead of putting more and more sanctions against the innocent people of Eritrea, the Security Council and the Guarantors of the Algiers Peace Treaty should force Ethiopia to accept the decision, because demarcation is the only way to peace.
