St Albans, United Kingdom, January, 2013 –(PR.com)– PrivateFly.com has asked travel fans across the world for their most scenic airport landings in its annual survey*, with the most votes going to the Caribbean island of St Maarten – where aircraft of all sizes land just metres from the beach at Princess Juliana International Airport.

Ethiopia’s Tekeda Alemu Feigns Concern over Djibouti-Eritrea Relations

Sophia Tesfamariam

 

It is rather interesting that Tekeda Alemu would today feign concern and call on Eritrea to show a “pacific disposition” towards Djibouti, Somalia and Ethiopia[i].  As this author recalls, it was Tekeda Alemu that asked the US to break the otherwise amicable and neighborly Djibouti-Eritrea relations. How can Eritrea have a “pacific disposition” to Ethiopia when for over a decade Ethiopia has been occupying its sovereign territories in violation of the Eritrea Ethiopia Boundary Commission’s (EEBC) final and binding delimitation and demarcation decisions, international law, the United Nations and African Union Charters? As for Somalia, no one tried harder to “isolate” Eritrea from playing any meaningful role in Somalia than did the regime in Ethiopia and its handlers. Now that they have managed to create an intractable desperate situation in a dismembered and weak Somalia, don’t expect Eritrea to burn in that self created quagmire. Allow me to remind the good Ambassador of a few facts about Djibouti-Eritrea relations. read more
