Seyoum Mesfin talks about the border war, Eritrea’s plan for a new war

In the first part of the interview with EthioForum, Seyoum Mesfin talked about Ethiopian Dam and the assassination of Semegnew Bekele

In the next part of the interview, he talked Ethio-Eritrean border war. He says it was not a border war or a war because of personal feuds of Ethiopian and TPLF leaders. He sees economic reasons as the main factors. He also says that Eritrea is plotting with Prosperity Party to open war.

  1. Ihadeg Woyane Shabiya Prosperity are all different sides of the same qocho , they all are after money only , their appetite for money is beyond words to express.

  2. I thought this former foreign minister had told the arbitrary court that passed its verdict on the border dispute after the senseless war that wasted the lives of more than 70,000 young people his then administration had accepted the decision. And he walked back over his own words to tell the court something else. If he had accepted the decision, then he has to cough up what he was told not his. Eritrea should also cough up the land it was told belongs to its neighbor. The issue is this man along with his cabal and Al-Toweel Isaias just don’t like each other personally. They hate him with a passion and he looks down on them in utter contempt in response. He calls them woyanes and they call him a dictator something he already knows. Not a single youth should lose his/her life on this nonsense. Not one!!!
