European Union tacit support to TPLF in the conflict in Ethiopia

The European Union has called for an end to the conflict and “political solution” in the post-war stage of the conflict when the Ethiopian Government is saying that it is just hunting TPLF leaders that are not yet captured or neutralized 


A day after about 60 Ambassadors and Diplomatic mission visited the Tigray region of Ethiopia, The European Union,via the EU office in Addis Ababa, announced priorities for the region. 

In a Twitter message on Friday, March 12, it said  “Thanks to Tigray Interim Administration for frank briefing of EU envoys in Mekelle March 10. Needs are huge and EU priorities clear: Stop the conflict and all human rights violations, withdrawal of Eritrean army, assistance to the Tigrayan people. #TeamEurope remains committed” 

It is unclear if the use of the language “Tigrayan People”, instead of people in the Tigray region of Ethiopia, is not a deliberate  one or just an endorsement of rhetoric from TPLF political forces (now leading the infowar in the cyber world) which seems to have the vision to prepare people in the region for a different political trajectory. The EU Twitter message also makes a mistake that there are people in the region who are not ethnic Tigreans – people that are equally affected by the war between TPLF and the Ethiopian Defense Force.  

On Thursday, this week, the European Union Council  published a press release in which it talked about the situation in the Tigary region of Ethiopia. 

Describing the development as ” a complex domestic situation,” it indicated that it could entail “major implications for the greater region.” 

Regionalization (and internationalization) of the conflict is not a new narrative. TPLF attempted to make it one when it was firing rockets at Asmara, Eritrea’s capital in November 2020. At the time, the US government understood it that way and condemned TPLF unequivocally pointing out that the operation is a law enforcement one and an internal affair of the Ethiopian govenment.  

Moreover, the European Union called for a “political solution” and encouraged the Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s administration to cooperate with the African Union in the interest of preserving  “the stability of the whole region”

The implication of “political solution” may mean a tacit recognition that the TPLF is still alive and operational.  In fact, the EU was explicit when it said that ​”the EU urges all parties to immediately end violence in the Tigray region, and ensure full, rapid and unhindered humanitarian access to all people in need in all areas.” 

Having reversed TPLF attack of on the Northern Command of the Ethiopian Defense Force on November 4, the Army defeated 250,000 TPLF forces in a span of a little over two weeks and that the government of Ethiopia declared that the TPLF is no longer there as an organized force.  The Constitutionally established National Electoral Board of Ethiopia (NEBE) similarly cancelled TPLF as a political organization owing to treason crimes. 

There are still reports of security issues in the region, confirmed by the provisional administration in the region, but the Ethiopian government says these security issues emanate from dispersed remnants of TPLF that can no longer engage in conventional warfare.

  1. Subject: “European Union tacit support to TPLF in the conflict in Ethiopia” borkena, March 12, 2021

    Humble Commentary, 12 Mar 2021
    It is not surprising if Europe has the nostalgia of YESTERDAY where BLACK AFRICA was the domain of the ‘civilized’ master of Europe. It goes without saying, of course, that the MASTER — once in a while — gnaws at the hypnotized colonized black African to behave in a civilized manner that they taught in practice.

    Imagine, for a second, the shocking of all shocking, on the reverse situation I.e. the African Union daring to tell its MASTER of YESTERDAY to behave in its internal squabbling in Europe.!!!!!!!!!!! One can easily dye laughing similar to a legendary son of a noble family in an Asian country who suddenly burst into laughter and died (1). The Journal of the country had the news splashed with these words >>>> “THE PRINCE LAUGHED HIS WAY TO DEATH.”

    So, please don’t make us laugh by that European Union gesture to be a mediator in African Affairs. History is loaded with the behaviour of Europe on the innocent, decent, trust worthy humane BLACK AFRICANS. Europe can NEVER be a mediator in Africa for the benefit of Africans. THE END
    (1) Actually the legendary story, in its entirety, arise from the family’s worry that their son was not able to laugh at all !!!. So, they had the help of an “expert’ to make their son laugh. The “expert” just sat in front of the son, without saying a world, but just looking straight at the son’s eyes without any movement. The son’s face suddenly brighten and slowly he started to smile and then laughter, after laughter, after laughter, after laughter and DIED.

  2. I am about to withdraw my support for prime minister Abiy Ahmed, due to his complacency, cooperating and allowing the Adolf Hitlerites, Benito Mussolini ideologists and the white supremacists to dictate and supervise the invasion as well as the distractions of ETHIOPIA, by the very enemies of Our country, who had tried to invade and colonize the ancient land of ETHIOPIA, by declaring wars in the first and second world wars and committing Genocides, as well as spitting on the king of ETHIOPIA, his majesty Teferi Mekonnen Haileselassie , while he was making a presentation about the Genocide being committed by fascist Benito Mussolini, on his country and people, not knowing that, the entire league of nation was occupied by Nazis & Fascists , to the League of Nations in Geneva Switzerland. It’s appalling that Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed the leader of free and independent ETHIOPIA will allow and handover his country to these nazis & Fascists to roam around freely in to the sacred land of ETHIOPIA, while he very well knows that, the human-blood drinking evil royals in Buckingham palace and the AMERIKKKANS are leading the pack to wipe ETHIOPIA from the map of the World and to genetically modify ETHIOPIANS as none related to GOD’S bloodline, in which they will never be able to achieve in their life time.
    The Illuminati member & the antiEthiopian, antiChrist spy master Herman Jay Cohen still tweets and talks about ETHIOPIA, and telling the world unless otherwise the AMHARAS are dismantled from the ETHIOPIAN politics & power-sharing, ETHIOPIA should be defied to the maximum until the AMHARAS are ethnically cleansed, just like his forefathers cleansed and wiped-out the entire native Americans to the label of extinction.

  3. Error of Europe. Tplf is criminal organisa tion who only want ethnic politic and economic power stop them for a better future of Ethiopia is necessary

  4. Tplf character is no secret to the media. It had been ruling the country with iron fist for 27 years. Systematic subjugation of other ethnic groups, and absolute political and economical domination. When the forces of change finally pushed away Tplf, it tried to resist. When pushed more it went to where it belonged, mekele. The change of force did not attack or arrest tplf leaders then. All are aware how fighting started. Tplf wanted to remain ruling, my way or the highway. In the war tplf lost. The media campaign was then launched to save tplf, but in vain. All sorts of accusations against the forces of change. One among which is ethnic cleansing. This is crazy, while an estimated 500,000 tigrayans in Addis Ababa and other cities are living and working in peace, without any incident
