    The following introductory paragraphs are intended to serve as a curtain raiser for the articles that would follow it in the weeks to come.

    The main conclusion is its open and honest claim that Somalia could have been up and running long ago, if the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) and the forces it commands within Somalia — including all sorts of shady Somalia militias — have not been allowed to become authors and contributors of Somalia’s continuing tragedy.

    In that, the individual articles provide tissues forming the conclusion’s muscle.

Ethiopia-UK human rights consultation underlines worrying situation in the country, for which Foreign Ministry has no answer

16 Nov

Editor’s Note:

    Diplomacy always is the art of the possible. There is also a diplomacy that is not fruitful at all. This latter thought was felt after reading on The Reporter Wednesday evening about the encounter between Ethiopian and United Kingdom officials, during which time the latter has sort of made a démarche about the deteriorating human rights situation in the country.

    The claim in the UK statement is true indeed.

    However, as a former Ethiopian foreign service member, then one of its diplomats and over a period participant in various international conferences and in 1989-1990 in the Security Council, and currently a retired International Civil Servant from the United Nations, I can say with certainty nothing is harder and more difficult than:
