Eritrea’s Government rejected charges by neighboring Ethiopia that it’s endeavoring to destabilize the nation after Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn resigned a month ago.
Ethiopia has been attempting to suppress sporadic hostile to government challenges in the course of recent years that have left many individuals dead. The administration has consistently blamed its eastern neighbor for impedance in its issues since the two countries isolated in 1993 following quite a while of equipped clash.
“This false allegation doesn’t merit serious response,” Information Minister Yemane Gebremeskel said Monday in an emailed response to questions. “The regime is desperately trying to deflect attention from its intractable domestic crisis — of its own making — and find external scapegoats.”
The state-claimed Ethiopian Broadcasting Corp. on March 17 cited the nation’s police boss as saying Eritrea has “attempted to destabilize the peace and security of our nation by arranging and sending against peace powers to Ethiopia.” The impedance has occurred since when a state of emergency was announced in the Horn of Africa country, it said.
