Latest USAID Ethiopia mission exposes WHO candidate Tedros Adhanom’s integrity problems

In his renowned book The New Diplomacy: International Affairs in the Modern Age (1983), former Israeli foreign minister Abba Eban travels far in time and the exquisite in style to find his definition of diplomacy. At a prominent point in his book, he quotes an 18th century French writer by the name Le Trosne, who once had described diplomacy as:

“an obscure art which hides itself in the folds of deceit, which fears to let itself be seen and believes it can exist only in the darkness of mystery.”

That may not certainly be the case. Its acceptance also is a harsh verdict against so many renowned diplomats with great achievements. Sadly, however, two hundred-thirty-nine years later Foreign Minister Tedros Adhanom seems to be improvising Le Tronse’s essence of diplomacy. Hence, all that the World Health Organization (WHO) director-general post candidate has to do is tinker with the latter part of the French writer’s description of diplomacy, i.e., expunging the last six words – ‘only in the darkness of mystery’ – and replacing them with “by consistent lies and self-replicating fogginess.”

For sometime now, Ethiopia’s diplomacy has been doing exceptionally bizarre things. Among others, just look at some of the foreign minister’s comments on the social media. Not that most of them are the type that bring little by way of added value to the country’s foreign policy, diplomacy or its direction in the world. But also on occasions they are terribly harmful or self-incriminating.
