Toronto – Eritrea’s Ministry of Information on Monday disclosed that Foreign Ministry summoned British charge d’affaires Asmara. It is in connection with “continued & false accusations against Eritrea” on matters related to alleged territorial occupation.
Yemane Gebremeskel, Minister for Information, shared a message on his X page (formerly Twitter).
“British Charge d’Affaires in Asmara summoned by Foreign Ministry again for stern message against continued & false accusations against Eritrea. Whitehall had for years endorsed TPLF occupation of sovereign Eritrean territories in breach of EEBC Award; appears to dwell on same tdy”
This is for the second time Eritrea has summoned a British diplomat in less than a year. Eritrea’s Director of General at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs In August 2023 summoned British Charge d’Affaires in Asmara over Darren Welch’s, the British Ambassador to Ethiopia, remarks made during a visit to Mekelle.
Eritrea was involved during the two-year war between Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s government and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) war after a rocket TPLF fired hit Asmara.
The TPLF has been accusing Eritrea of “occupying territories in the Tigray region.” Eritrea denies it and sees TPLF’s position as Irridentist claim.
