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.
