It has been more than eight months since the Pretoria agreement ended the deadly two years war between Ethiopian government and the TPLF on condition that, ideally, the latter was to disarm and resort to war.
The government of Eritrea became a party to the war following TPLF provocation, in what was then believed to be an effort to internationalize the war, although it was not a party during the African Union led negotiation to end the war that took place in South Africa.
Yesterday, a new video was published on Youtube channel in which Ethiopian and Eritrean Military commanders were reflecting on the Pretoria agreement and what led to it.
The commanders from both countries reflected the view that the TPLF was a problem to peace and the hope that TPLF’s disarmament would lead to peace for both countries.
There was also a view from Ethiopian military commanders that Eritrean troops and Eritrea proved to be reliable allies in difficult times. The empathy and compassion from Eritrean troops towards Ethiopian troops who were unexpectedly attacked by the TPLF was noted.
The video shared below emerged at a time when local sources (Anchor Media is one of them) are reporting intensive military activity by Ethiopian forces near the Wolkait border.
There has also been a report that the TPLF did not disarm meaningfully – in the spirit of the Pretoria agreement. And that it is also said to be making military moves in the Wolkait area but no other sources have covered it.
The Ethiopian government did not explain why it had to deploy a huge portion of the Defense Force along the Wolkait. The Eritrean government did not remark on reported developments in the area either.
The situation is fostering speculation about possible war in the region. What is your take? Share it in the comment section.
