    If it is ture, yes it is a terrible blow to Ginbot 7 propagandists. But, even if the situation between Ethiopa and Eritrea remians as it is today (no-war no-peace), what change can G 7 bring? It has achieved nothing in the last many years though it promised to topple “Woyane”, and it will do nothing for the coming years. It is all the same!

    • Mekdes says:

      I agree 100% with you. And try to correct woyane word to EPRDF. THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO STRUGgle in Ethiopia, that is peacefull struggle. That is what I am telling to my Gondere friends who are bitter about this govt. I smell Eritreans too, your name seems the name which is by Eritreans.

  2. eden says:

    Reconciliation???? This is something next to impossible. But if in the very remote possibilty, the certified schizopath Isayas Afewriki decided to estabish peace with Ethiopia, then the process has to include the Eritrea government to bring Ginbote 7 as a chrismas present for Ethiopian governemnt.
    Eritrea, is a defacto failed state. If the Ethiopian governemnt were to seek reconcilaton with Eritrea-Isayas Afeworki, then the case would be simple..ie just put foci military pressure on the Tigria-Eritrea boarder.

    But I and most Ethiopians prefer the way EPRDF OFFICIALLS are handling Ethio-Eritrea issue because Eritrea from sometimes now will reach to the point where it can not afford the NO PEACE NO WAR situaions cos it the most expensive solution for state which is out casted from the plante Earth.
    It is a kind of Weird thought, anyway For the benifts of the above assertions, I wish Isayas Afeworki to have a long time life until he turns Eritrea to ash.

    • Okello says:

      So when you are going to a negotiation, your first demand is G7? Eritrea holds Ethiopian port illegally, and your negotiating point is g7? tplf is indeed disturbingly anti Ethiopian.

    • ALEMAYEHU says:

      EDEN DO NOT BE AN ARROGANT. ERITREAN PR. ISAYAS IS NOT ASKED ANY OFFER TO SIT FOR TALK WITH YOUR WEYANE.

  3. Nonsense says:

    You don’t make sense. Meles Zenawi asked fifty times to normalize relations so we heard from his stogie who was beging for the 51th time. I didn’t know our govt is the desperate.

  4. alemayehu says:

    YOU DO NOT HAVE EVIDENCE FOR HE ASKED OR NOT . THIS IS PROPAGANDA.

  5. AKLILU Metkelu says:

    OHHHHHHH gemY God, this is a good dream, a good jog, a huge lie as usual ethiopians sleepe on a good bed to dream the whole Night, do not keven think ,that Erirea can threated by ethiopia as ethiopia by westerners, eritrea is a nation self confidenced country unlike Agame weyane . You continue to Dream, we will continue to construct our country, You continue to begg food and what other necessary to feed your poor people, while we continue to work hard day and night to make Eritrea as super African Nation.

    • Asmarino says:

      Bad words comes out your mouth. Bad things will happen to you. We all are one family. Hamacien, Acelegusay, Seraye, Tigray. Start speacing good words and good things will happen. Everything starts in our mind. We love you Ethiopians. We want peace. We want fighting poverty. Fight the hate in your heart. Otherwise hate will cause cancer in your body.

    • ET says:

      @Aklilu
      Construct at the expense of the Eritrea youth. You know what it is easy to do the talking from Canada or US, why don’t you try going back and do what the voiceless poor citizens are doing. Try go through what Eritrean youth are going though. Go back to the desert and do the indefinite national service and then come here and tell how u feel then. In the meantime you are invited to watch the following YouTube videos

      Maybe this will change your view as what is happening in Eritrea. If you want more info just Google Eritrea and see what comes up, more good or bad

    I don’t support Ginbot 7. They are bunch of arrogant individuals who are after their personal interest – money. But what I don’t understand is Dawit Kebede’s obsession with them. Since he went back to Ethiopia Dawit became the worst. As his enemy label him is he a spy of EPRDF. It is very sad if he is.

    • Banjaw says:

      Guest,
      I don’t support G7. But, by spending his time and energy in bashing an irrelevant opposition instead of criticizing the tribalist, undemocratic and corrupt government, Dawit is exposing himself for suspicions. I could be wrong, but I believe he (Dawit) returned to Ethiopia from his unsuccessful mission in the diaspora. I give him credit for one thing: he give me the platform to express my opinion and still posts my comment.

      • wolde ab says:

        Banjaw: Dawit has not learned his lessons from Aiga Forum well yet. When he does, he will not beat around the bush and allow negative comments to be published in this site. So, it is a matter of time before he comes out.

  7. Giorgio says:

    You are ethiopian and that the thing you want your people to believe, however no eritrean would believe anything that you write as it is a total trush! Once again give us back Bademe as it is ours then we will let you have talk of normalization.
    There are no other ways outside this!

    • solomon says:

      Who gave you badme . YOU MASER ITALIAN. BECAUSE YOUR BANDA GRANDFATHER SELL HIS BIG ASS TO ITALIAN .
      ERTIREAN HAVE NOTHING .
      YOU HAVE NO LANGUGE NO CULTUER BELONG TO TIGRAY ETHIOPIA .YOU HAVE ONLY KNOW HOW TO SERVE A WIHTE MEN ITALIAN

  8. GETACHEW REDA says:

    From GETACHEW REDA (Editor Ethiopian Semay);

    Look, this is the usual game that news agencies or “information and disinformation agencies” is disseminate when they are desperate for new news surrounding the two bandits.
    ————————————————————-
    first of all, both , especially Isayas Afewerki is comfortable the way he is. Such conflict keeps his power stay at the hand of his party. He is in Eritrea in power using such scapegoat to not establish any viable constitution or democracy or any abuse of justice. If you research his responses to the people they ask him why there is election, or why there is no justice – he usual answer is we are at war, we have no time to establish any thing before the country is sure safe from enemies attack. Our security is in danger by Ethiopians holding our territories. The second reason he use is CIA, America. He accuses it is not Ethiopia, but America are the main enemy of Eritrea behind and so on and so on…
    ———————————————–
    So, even if one believe the story is true and want both reconciliation- as long as Isayas accused America the principal enemy of Eritrea using Ethiopia as proxy;- it does not make sense if both make reconciliation or not as long according to Isayas’s rhetoric telling us America is the source of the conflict in the “Horn”.
    ———————————————————
    Take this in mind. Badime is the principal obstacle for both bandits from creating any positive relation. Meles Zenawi was the first person who used to push Isayas for reconciliation. Never the less, Isayas does not want it, until Badime is give to Eritrea. Even if given to Eritrea, Isyas as I told you earlier do not want peace, because peace for Isayas means the end of his government. People will demand justice and election.
    ————————————————————
    At the same time Meles or the present “Eritro/Tigray- ‘askai'” in Ethiopia do want the reconciliation very badly. But, the Badime issue is a thorn on their ass. If they give Badime to Eritrea, that will be the end of the power of the Tigray askari. The people of Tigray will be furiously angry and toppled them with riot perhaps lead by their own group inside the present TPLF (by the right wing Tigrayan ethno nationalists like the American ‘Tea Party’ who challenged the wright wing republican party.
    ——————————————————–
    All in all, the only option for TPLF to make reconciliation is to give Badime to Eritrea. Woyane wants reconciliation than Isayas. on the other hand Isays do not want it , even he gets Badime. Because. he wants that spot as a reason to continue doing what he is doing.
    ———————————————————————-
    The solution to make positive reconciliation for both Eritrea and Ethiopia is to remove both bandits. They want each others survival without removing one another. The Tigray askri do not want to remove Isyas, because they said they love Eritrean people. What does that mean? If they love Eritreans why can’t they remove him to Dahlak Islands if they believe they love them. They accused him as he is causing their misery. If so why is that the Tigray ‘asari’ group do not want him to be pushed to Dahlak Islands if the askari group in Tigray are telling us they love the Eritrean people. Both are playing games, they need each other.
    —————————————————————–
    If the askari group in Tigray is toppled by Ethiopian people, the next group might be Ethiopian nationalist and claim Eritrea’s illegitimate secession to be revise and its sea ports back or face war as they claim “Eritrea was taken by force from Ethiopians” then Ethiopian swill claim “force will bring Eritrea back to its right place- even though it was not force but the calibrates’ and insiders’ job was mainly the cause for Eritrea to go and the demise of the army”. Only fools wish this kind of games to come true. Both belligerent groups are not states men, they are bandits and got in to unbelievable war that looks like not real , but a fiction war movie that eliminate about 80,000 life with no one accountable. belligerent and bandits are not of the civilized world but the past world and is unlikely peace to come as long as one of them toppled by neutral force. Arabs do not want the peace of both people, they want their conflict to grow and stay the way it is. All that Qatar mediation is unoccupied men’s game.
    ————————————————-

    Both are stocked in Badime. As long as that border remains unsolved no Qatar or no Beshir will solve it. Badime will be the cause of TPLF’s demise if Isayas still stays in his demand that “no talks- simply give me Badime the way you went to court and got defeated”. That will be a disaster for TPLF to hung in such scenario. Such scenario is not good for Tigrayan people- because villagers got kidnapped, every night villagers cows and properties taken, terrorist bombers using OLF and others are sent to Ethiopia, Addis Abeba according tot the TPLF’s security reports. Why then the patient on “Wedi Afom”? Because the askari group in Tigray claimed they love Eritrean people kkkkkkkkkkkkkk!! Because they love Eritrean people, Ethiopians should be bombed, their libs blown, heir people in Tigray kidnapped. What a joke!!! Both bandits are the curse of our people.

    Thanks

    • Abebe says:

      Getachew Reda,
      what a melting pot!!!!
      While you are in it, why don’t you add the forces of the angels and the devils.
      Are you really and editor of any newspaper? May be you can express yourself better in Amharic, as for your English, I think a third grader in my old school in Debre Zeit would do much better.
      Getachew, you are misleading people with your so called knowledge of the situation when you don’t have a clue about what is happening between Ethiopia and Eritrea, especially when it comes to the relationship between Eritrea and Tigray. Your article is full of racial (or ethnic should I say?) slurs and bigotries.
      For your information, Eritrean and Tigrean rivalries didn’t start with Isayas and Meles. They history goes way before Ras Alula and Raesi Woldenkiel of Hazega. Eritreans are distinct people from the Tigray people. Eritrea is composed of 9 ethnic groups each with their own culture and language. The closest group to the Tigray are the tigrigna speaking highlanders, hamassen, Akele Gouzay and Seraye. They still are very different from the Tigray in culture, custom, history and mind set.
      I recommend you study these people before you use your bigot language and racial slurs.
      When it comes to Meles and Isayasyou still don’t understand anything about the situation.
      As far as Meles is considered, I will leave it to you, but when it comes to Isayas, let me tell you some historical facts.
      The history between Eritrea and Ethiopia in modern times really started after Italian and British colonization of Eritrea. In 1952 Eritrea was federated to Ethiopia as a separate entity with it’s own parliament, flag depending on Ethiopia only for border defenses (This is something you can consult and educate yourself about with the UN archives). In 1962, Haile Sellassie annexed Eritrea militarily and declared it as Ethiopia’s 14th province. That is a gain a verifiable fact.
      The Eritrean highlanders having the closest culture to the Amhara and Tigreans of Ethiopia accepted the coming of Ethiopia with overwhelming happiness and great joy. Not so, for the Moslem lowlands who didn’t this combination of the highland Christians and this Christians coming from the south. This is also the year that saw the armed struggle starting in the lowlands, on the borders of Sudan. Although there were resistances from both Christian and Moslem groups all along the continuous hegemonic policy of the Ethiopian feudal government, the first gun shots where fired in September 1961.
      The following years the Ethiopian army occupational behavior and Haile Sellassie wrong policy of integrating Eritrea to Ethiopia pushed away not only moslem eritreans but also christians and young students and intellectuals to join the armed struggle and finally liberate Eritrea.
      As you may know TPLF and EPRP were new comers, they started in the 70ths. As far as Isayas is concerned, his dictatorial behavior started way before in the beginning of the 70th when he crashed democrats inside his movement. At the fall of Mengistou Hailemariam, Eritrean fighters were the ones who occupied Addis Abeba, I was there and I met some of them. Isayas’s could dominate Ethiopia if he wanted. He never wanted, he always wanted his small, private domain to do whatever he wanted to do with it.

      • wedinakfa says:

        Abebe,

        thanks for your accurate and bite size the history of Ethiopia and Eritrea.
        Dear brother if we had a few people like you, who tell it as it is, Ethioipia and Eritrea would never have been in this situation but with the likes of the guy you are trying to Educate (plently of them actually)we are in this predicament.

        What is missing in Ethiopia is a genuine appriciation of teh daily reality of the two countries, as you have put it Haile sellasie did not play the cards right not mengistu try to sulvage and now woyane the suicidal clique are making things worst by the hour.

        Brother, reading your short commenty was/is uplifting and faith restoring.

        Once again I thnak you brother Abebe

      • Alula says:

        The reality is , Issias tried to dominate Ethiopia, but the wise leaders of Ethiopia followed the movement of your savage leaders closely knowing what Isaias was thinking! Once your leaders went beyond the limit looting Ethiopia …..then the wise leaders of Ethiopia acted …. & defeated Issias & his cronies successfully! As a result you can see where the used to be good Eritrea! 7years of too much bragging melted away like a butter…. & all your leader has gained is a shame in front of the world ….. Kebede you don’t know what you are talking about at all! They control Addis Ababa? They came after Addis was liberated! Nizeyifelit Kem’u elka Nigero!

  9. Ema says:

    If EPRDF makes conciliation with Isayas, that would be the greatest mistake ever for the party. I do not think the old and toothless dog has any heart for peace. EPRDF, take care, close any doors until Isayas’s regime is over.

      Dear Ashenafi, let your brothers utter the word peace you will have 24/7 access to RED Sea you no need to holiday in Zukala or Shashemenie.
      chill

  11. tuuut says:

    This is not the first time the Eritrean president admitted that the relationship Eritrea has with Ethiopia has been heading in the wrong direction. The cultural, social, and geographical relationship can’t be solved, separated, or enforced by military power and Esayas knows better than any one because he has a gene from both sides of the border. On Ethiopian side not fighting esyas militarily is very important because He thinks that by making Eritrean people to think that Ethiopia is the number one enemy of the Eritrean people helps him to gets his political support. I believe Eritrea can have two portraits’ one with Ethiopia the other without and both portraits can be completely different. For Ethiopia, life will be the same with or without Eritrea.

    • Ema says:

      – But in my opinion: For Ethiopia, life will be much better without Eritrea.

      – When the rail project to Djibouti is finished, the problem of PORT will be solved and after that there is nothing Ethiopia needs from Eritrea.

  12. GondarArmachiho says:

    Lets point out some facts and imply a conclusion based on these facts…

    1. Ethiopia has defeated Eritrea on the diplomatic field, leaving it with little allies and resources and quite honestly the North Korea of Africa. The longer Eritrea decides to drag this out the worst it gets for them.

    2. The Eritrean economy is so unstable its GDP growth fluctuates by the year, in some of its years (since 1999) having a GDP growth of 8.3 percent and in some -3 percent. Meaning it doesn’t, likely, have consistent internal progress.

    3. Though Isaias is still nearly deified (disgustingly enough) by his people, faith in the governmental system by Eri’s in the diaspora and even in the country is not what it used to be and is in fact quickly dwindling. Eritreans all around are beginning to notice how often the youth are leaving.

    4. The Eritrean government has halted all creativity and innovativeness in dealing with Eritreas global economic system and their ostracization from it, being content in their weakness.

    5. Ethiopia is stabilizing in more and more areas as its economy and place in the world. While Eritreans brag about about a 30 year war and how they won and have “the coast,” Eritreas economy would have benefitted from Ethiopias use of that coast and dare I say, their economy would depend on it and has taken a hit because of the lack of its use. However, Ethiopia has been building roads and trains to coasts in both Djbouti and Somaliland, making Eritreas coastal advantage increasingly irrelevant, and opening relations would just provide ethiopia with a cheaper convenience but not a necessity. This threatens Eritreas future economy if relations did ever mend.

    5. Ethiopia is building 11 dams, through on nearly all its rivers, which are spread out across the entire country, mostly for energy production, which will assist ethiopia in making it a manufacturing based economy and providing thousands if not millions with power and jobs. But the major advantage point for ethiopia is this, they are going to sell that power to neighboring countries, integrating their economies with that of their neighbors. This means that in the next 10 years, Ethiopia will likely be the most powerful sub-saharan (if not african) country, growing in both influence, economy, and stability. In addition this would assist other countries leaving Eritrea even more so in the dust.

    Conclusion: Ethiopia is progressing in ALMOST every way, while Eritrea is losing influence in its own community, and lacking in tangible and mental progress. Eritrea is in much more need of reconciliation with Ethiopia than Eritrea so Isaias wanting to do so would be a very honest, logical, and possible thing. Though Eritreans have been bred to believe the contrary, Eritrea and Isaias are not the greatest thing to happen to Eritrea. Ethiopia is much more powerful in almost every (tangible) imaginable way. My personal opinion let Eritrea burn, for the amount of hate they have for ethiopia and the governments constant propaganda against ethiopian people, let their people understand that they are not innately superior to us in anyway and in fact, they NEED Ethiopia. Let the people and their faulty sense of nationality and government break. I think Afwerki does want recon., but doesn’t know how to do so without losing his country and power, I think as soon as he dies, if eritrea doesn’t fall apart, they will attempt to do so. Let the Eri peoples brainwashedness END.

    • Asmera says:

      To Gondararmachiho:

      I AM FROM ASMARA. AND I AGREE WITH OUR STATEMENT. EVEN NOT ALL ERITREANS ARE BAD. BUT MANY ARE. AFTER ITALIANS LEFT, THEY OWNED A LAND WHICH WAS BY FAR DEVOLEPED AS THE REST OF ETHIOPIA. THEY THOUGHT THEY ARE SOME THING BETTER AND TREATED THE POOR TIGRAYS SO BAD.I KNOW THIS BECOSE MY GRANDFATHER TOLD ME ABOUT THIS TIME. HE ALWAYS SAYS: WATH HAPPENS NOW IS THE PAYBACK FOR WHAT HAPPENED IN THE PAST. IT IS A PUNISHMENT FOR BAD BEHAIVOR OF SO CALLED ERITREANS IN THE PAST. IF NOT TZE RESPONSIBLES OF THAT TIME PUNISHED, THEIR CHILDREN WILL BEAR IT. THIS IS WATH WE SEE IN THE SINAI DESSERT. THE BEST WAY IS NOT TO ACT LIKET THEM. ETHIOPIA SHOULD HAVE MERCY WITH THEM. BE BETTER AS THEM. GRANT EACH ONE WHO COMES AS REFUGEE OR LIVES IN ERITREA THE ETHIOPIAN CITICENSHIP. AND THE ISSUE OF ERITREA WILL BE SOLVED BY IST OWN.

      IF WOULD HAVE THE MONEY I WOULD GO TO ADDIS A LAUNCH A PARTY WHICH NOT RECOGNISE ERITREA. ERITREA IS LIKE TIWAN FOR CHINA. ERITREA IS ETHIOPIA. THE PEOPLE ARE ETHIOPIANS. L9NG LIVE ETHIOPIA.

  13. Embasoleda says:

    Well, it looks like the clown, unstable, unridictable, and the crazy warlord leader of headless Shabian, finally has relized that his small man delusional syndrome will get him nowhere…LOL. Most of all, he has finally relized that he can’t achieve his evil dreams against Ethiopia by just supporting those gutless, G7 and likes mouthpieces…LOL. I mean, the G7 and liks diaspora politician are only good at manufacturing lie and lately they all are becoming a ploughing stuck or an entertaining jokers to the Ethiopian people…
    For example, let me share with you one of he jokes about G7:

    Melasu rejim awrie gen yemay-goda man now? G7…LOL.
    Ke-shabia wetaderich foto eyetenesa yenie nachew belo sew lematalel yemimoker man new? G7…LOL.

    Keaknu belay eyetenterara yeminor ebid man know? Isayas the clown and his headles cadres…LOL.

    However, I would like to voice my concerns that the Ethiopian government should look carefully into this matter and seek a lasting solution that will benefit the Ethiopian, and the Eritrian people. I don’t want talk about what mistaking had been done in the past, but from now forward the Ethiopian government should never compromise the interst of the Ethiopian people. We like it or not, there will be no peace between the tiny Eritrea of three million population with blocking ninety million of Ethiopia from their rightful access to their seaports, and if there will be a peace talk, it should and must be about this issue. As far to the Alger agreement, it was mistake, but thanks to God that Isayas the clown has broke it and it is void…

  14. Mario says:

    Since the Eritrean regime went beyond return to peace, it is impossible! Ethiopia has been seeking for win win situation since day one, but t he Eritrean regime refused all along!

    finally ,it is a big blow for the useless G7! probably,G7 will seek money directly from Egypt! peace is the biggest value in a given society!

  15. Habesha says:

    Building Eriteria???? Really????? Hahahahaha talk about a dead nation.

  16. Eritrean says:

    lol…so let me get this straight…for years your desperate ethio government has been publicly begging Eritrea to “normalize ties” and “to talk”…but now awate wants people to believe that it is Eritrea/PIA that desperately wants to negotiate with ethiopia? And based on what exactly? Awate’s claim that it’s “source” is sudanese? And why exactly would Eritrea/PIA be so desperate now? We have mining company after mining company signing deals and finding minerals, just the other day a british company bought a Eritrean based mining company. We have a former british MP leading a company that wants to prospect for oil/gas. Do you think these british companies would go to “rogue” Eritrea without the british government’s consent? Not bloody likely. Then we have the russian FM inviting Eritrea’s FM. The UN sent a delegation and sign a multi-million dollar deal several months back. A finish and EU delegation going to asmara…calls from former US ambass. politicians calling for the US to re-engage eritrea. Eritrea’s economy growing in double digits…and some how we are expecting to believe…only now…with these events..Eritrea is in dire straights or desperate? lmoa…I think it’s awate/opposition/TPLF that is desperate that the tides are changing against them and in Eritrea’s favour.

    • wedinkafa says:

      Eritrean, forget Awate is doing the biddingof the dead leader as for woyane look at them, when the word PEACE is mentioned tehy are deficateing through their mouth because woyane can not govern in Peace and make my word woyane is on “DEATH RAW” Their good friend US has saved Mengistu asn like wise the use and throw woyane politicians will roam the west as they wish and for sure Ethiopia will be History watch between 2014 – 2017 thre wil be no more ESTOBIA!!!

  17. welwallo says:

    The practical application of the term is difficult than we speak as simple as it is. There should be a very structural and policies changes in order to see reconciliation happen. Of course it seems outrageous to say a country has to do some structural and policy changes. Knowing, political and economic nature of one society is its own future. It surfaces a question; don’t you think this is a typical example of interfering with one country sovereignty? Yes it is, in its political nature. Especially, what we are seeing this time around. However, this is different from its nature that is mentioned above. The government of Ethiopia is calling a change in policies towards the very existing strategy of the Eritrean regime seeing weaken and act with all means to weaken Ethiopia and its people by engaging in futile nonstop interference with its platform in order to fulfill his economic and political ambition. So, how is it possible to reconcile this two country while this policy in its place, And what is the advantage of reconciliation for Ethiopia any ways? Is there any? Probably, as some layman politician suggest Ethiopia will get a chance to access the port of Assab? Well, it is too late; the probability of Ethiopia using Assab port as its main hub for export and import destination is almost zero when you look in to market preference. For Simple reason, rail way transportation is much cheaper, faster, can carry hundredth times fright than road transportation. Technically speaking, the chance of using Assab for Ethiopia as a port is out of competition due to lack of insight from the Eritrean economists. They were sub merged in the idea of annihilating Ethiopia by blocking Assb port from using without seeing its consequence. Having said that, there is one and only chance probably if Ethiopia is interested to lease it for fifty or hundred years. There is no way that Ethiopia can see to access the port of Assab or Massawa after the completion of the rail way. Their market feasibility is bottom down. So, why we reconcile, while the time bomb is hidden in our court yard (policy of Eritrea). I remember one politician from the state of Sudan called Hussien Altrabi in his interview in the late 1900 I quote Isayas rotates three hundred sixty degree like an artillery in a tank, you do know which direction he shoots. This quote was made before the invasion of Yemen (Hanish) , Sudan, Djibouti and Ethiopia. He is who he is. He is still intact in his idea to fulfill the Eritrean dynasty in the horn of Africa. He hi still dreaming the greatness of Eritrea under his leader ship by killing the ambition of Ethiopia which starts to march on (kill the big foot). No one minds being whatever dream they have, but it shouldn’t be at the expense of someone life and hope. So, does the Sudanese president understand this? Why is this all rush though? Why he want to reconcile with a nation where her people are illiterate, poor, beggars, no good health care system, People dies of lack of care and addition Burden to his life. Why he wants to reconcile with the people who had bombarded their kids while they are at school three to ten years old? I don’t think Ethiopia takes a step to reconcile while the hyena is barking around. By the way, how many of you know hyena has multiple voices that help him to deceive for his pray? Just as inf

    Only if Wedi Afom:
    1: Null and void the mishandled so-called Algiers Agreement and agree to a Igad/African/Regional negotiated dialogue for a peaceful and win win solution.

    2.Release all Ethiopian prisoners currently in Eritrea and provide an account of those who died-thus creating a mechanism to hold those responsible, and componsate for their confiscated properties(same holds on Ethiopian side by the way).

    3.Dialogue or negotiate in good faith on a mechanism where Ethiopia will have a permanent access to the sea (call it little Assab or Red Sea outlet….etc).

    4. Denounce all clandestine war monger groups like the G7, ONLF, …. and kick them out from Eritrea.

    only then can we have a genuine lasting peace. If not, Eritreas fate is a wait and see and the status quo is unfortunately the most viable option for Ethiopia.

    People should not take hearsay as news. The source of the information is awate web site. Where did awate get the news? From “diplomatic sources in Sudan.” Sources infer at least there are two people working in Sudan foreign affairs who spoke about Isayes’ intention to make peace with Ethiopia. I do not buy it. The guy not long ago who said the only country in Africa making dynamic progress was Eritrea cannot be expected to use the Sudanese leader as a mediator between Eritrea and Ethiopia. He knows making peace would by far be beneficial to Eritrea than Ethiopia. But he does not want to hear about it. His ego does not allow him to do what is beneficial to Eritrea and Eritreans. To Isayes his ego is more important to him than Eritrea. Any astute politician who followed Eritrea’s politics confirms that Eritrea and Isayes are interchangeable synonymous. Awate also says the Ethiopian government dismissed out of hand Bashir’s effort to reconcile the two countries. According to awate the Ethiopian government has said the Eritrea government problem was with the regional and international entities, not with Ethiopia. What a news! I do not know that. Well at least as far as I know Ethiopia is one of the “regional entities.” This hearsay should not be posted as news really. I know getting any information from a prison called Eritrea is pretty tough. I understand that. But fabricating news just to feel good might not be taken as alternative for not having real news.

    I don’t think so! Isayas is a bucher and anti his own community he is not willing to reconcilation b/s it is not his behavior but if it is true it is good for his people.

  22. Kifle says:

    You see Dawit, every news brings your true color out. Weyane and Shabia’s animosity started way before G7 inception. Yet, you try to correlate ” Aramba ena Kobo”. G7 is a useless organization with out any practical move. Yet, Weyanes are still afraid of it. I wonder if there is a real challenge started what would you do, if you scared of just propaganda.
    Dawit you really need help.

    This iscrazy! No more relation unless Asssab port return back to Ethiopia!

  24. Sintayehu Takele says:

    We should say welcome for president Isayas with our family members which are living in Ertrea.I don’t want to consider they (Ertrean’s)are our neighbor. they are our family members. When we come to the negotiation EPRDF has no right to decide by itself. The issue would be better to take to the people for referendum, either/nor to start negotiation.

    It is the time to make Unite with our families which are living Ertrea.

    Tigrians are blocking Ethiopia’s way in resolving Eritrea’s issue for once and for all.

    If it wasn’t for the BABYSITTING policy of Tigreans towards Eritrea (not EPRDFs), Shabiya would have been gone long ago and the two ppl would have sort out their differences by now.

    Ethiopians are starting to see that Ethiopia is bleeding to keep TPLFs interest on Shabiya.

    If the concern was about the ppl Ethiopia and Eritrea, the resolve would have been to let Ethiopians decide what’s best for Ethiopia not TPLF.

    TPLF single handedly handles, deals and decides on the issue of Eritrea. The Oromos, Wolayita’s, Somalis, Amharas and gambellas don’t have a say when it comes to the Northern part of Ethiopia.

    TPLF has successfully made the rest of Ethiopians think that this is A Tigreans issue not Ethiopians.

    The Amhara elites are half dead and half sleeping with Shabiya…..too stupid to stand by Ethiopia’s interest.

    The Oromos are as voiceless as they are when the Amaras were in power,mthanks to a little cash flow TPLF built for them on their own recourse.

    Honestly, the biggest milestone in Oromos struggle was the PETITION they successfully signed to block Teddy’s concert.
    They have to thank TPLF for letting them hold on to small battles against Amaras just to counter The Amara elites in the capital.

    The Wolayitas are all teeth now that TPLF let them run around and dance with their costumes in the cities, not questioning where their next pay cheque comes from. The PMs stand on going to Asmara and talk to the mad dog is just a show off (from TPLF) knowing the mad dog won’t allow it. The message to Shabiya was that TPLF will send their servant.

    CONCLUSION
    TPLF has built bridges and brought some development to Ethiopia, but they are fucking Ethiopia on their dilusionl policy towards Eritrea.

    LET ETHIOPIANS DECIDE ON ERITREA’S ISSUE!

    To all anti Ethiopia Eritrean , you have been bragging so much in the last 22 years & beyond, but all you brought is; a misery to the people! Eritrean mothers & fathers are saying, Derg was hunting only these affiliated to ELF & EPLF, the rest led their normal life! Your government is killing the whole Generation! Why don’t you do your own affairs instead of interfering all over Ethiopian cyber space!

    You don’t know what you guys are talking about at all!

  28. Bekalu says:

    Dawit you must clarify this fo your attendants.

    What i knew was that, the then Ethiopian pm had asked isayas several times (50) to negotiate. This is according to the info i had from HD on Aljazira. The same day he also said he will go to asmere without any per-condition.

    How comes today per-condition?????? this make me laugh from heart!

    ——–Response to the son of Italian askari
    ————

    Sorry, for the late response. I was a bit busy to response to such trash from the Eritrean askari. Let me first start to inform to the brothers/sisters who can’t understand Tigringa language what I am addressing here below to the son of the askari banda who foolishly claimed as if I do not know the history of Eritrea (gemology/war and conflict….) or as if I do not know who Dehjach Woldemichael was, the man known for the love of Amharic language (see all his official letters he wrote to foreigners and his superiors in Tigray/Gonder…)
    He is trying to tell me “Eritreans” (Deki Medri Bahri) are different people from Tigray or the rest of our people.
    Let me start to ask him in Tigringa if he knew the following story incase his parents told him who Eritreans are mixed with.
    ——————————————-
    Let me educate to that banda who Eritreans are mixed with. And to let him know who the following ethnic/community were before they go and live in the present Eritrea. Eritreans are even worst mixture of all global blood than the Tigrayans.———————-

  32. Henok says:

    I can’t stop laughing to this blah blah blah from the donkey, just president issais yestrday 11/02/2014 said in the interview live from Masswa “no talk to weyane ever, weyane knocking every door of the world begging other countries to persuade Eritrea to talk but the president said, I advice them not to waste their times coz our stand will never be change” Eritrea through some tough times but now the ecnomy growing and Eritrea is one the fastes 10 counties in the world, over 30 companies are investing in Gold now British, Russia and chines are investing in gas and oil, even America is changing their tune, Eritrea has well trained and armed to teeth 400,000 army, 50 state of the art su27 and mig29s fighter planes, 2 comando crack troops, so if u can’t beat us when we had 120,000 and 4 jet fighters in 2000, what chance you have with ethnic devided army of Ethiopia now? If weyane had a power they could have do what they did in Somalia, every armed opposition are inside Eritrea but nothing you cand beside talking. Before blabbing why don’t u ask yourself why are weyane so afraid to go in to Eritrea and destroy the opposition and shaebia? Coz they know they can’t beat shaebia, Issais told them last year if they start a full war this time, it won’t be like last time, it will be end of weyane for good. But you donkeys saying Eritrea is a failed state just to cover your weakenes which is afraid to attack Eritrea like before. Every Eritrean is armed and ready. Come on try. Stop talking bullshit, or go beg for food as usual like you did for the last 100 yrs. be shamed still begging but a new country Eritrea stopped aid in 2006 once and for good

    የቀድሞው የኢትዮጵያ ፕሬዚዳንት አቶ ግርማ ወልደ ጊዮርጊስ የሥልጣን ዘመናቸውን ከጨረሱ በኋላ፣ የኢትዮጵያና የኤርትራ መንግሥታትን ማስታረቅ እንደሚፈልጉ የመንግሥት የቴሌቪዥን ጣቢያ በሆነው ኢቴቪ በይፋ ገልጸው መስመር የያዘላቸው መሆኑንም አሳውቀው ነበር፡፡

    በቅርቡ ከኤርትራ ቴሌቪዥን ጋር ሰፊ ቃለ ምልልስ ያደረጉት ፕሬዚዳንት ኢሳያስ አፈወርቂ ግን ምንም ዓይነት የዕርቅ ፍላጐት እንደሌላቸው የኢትዮጵያ መንግሥት በፕሮፓጋንዳ ብልጫ እየተጠቀመበት እንደሆነ ተናግረዋል፡፡ ፕሬዚዳንቱ ኢትዮጵያን በተመለከተ ለቀረቡላቸው ጥያቄ የሰጧቸው ምላሾች እንደሚከተለው ቀርበዋል፡፡

    ‹‹የሕዝብ ግንኙነት ብልጫ ለማግኘት ነው››

    ሁለት የኤርትራ የመንግሥት ቴሌቪዥን ጋዜጠኞች አንዳንድ የአገር ውስጥና የአካባቢ ፖለቲካዊና ዲፕሎማሲያዊ ጥያቄዎችን ለፕሬዚዳንት ኢሳያስ አንስተውላቸዋል፡፡ ፕሬዚዳንቱ በኢትዮጵያና በኤርትራ ግንኙነት ላይ የሰጡት አስተያየት አነጋጋሪ ነው፡፡

    በመግለጫው ከተገኙ የመንግሥት ጋዜጠኞች መካከል አንዱ እንዲህ ብሎ ፕሬዚዳንቱን ይጠይቃቸዋል፤ ‹‹ኤርትራና ኢትዮጵያን ለማስታረቅ አንዳንድ ሙከራዎች እየተደረጉ እንደሆነ በሚዲያዎች እየተነገረ ነው፡፡ ይኼ የሚወራው ነገር እውነት ነው ወይ?›› ይላቸዋል፡፡

    ‹‹ፕሬዚዳንት ኢሳያስ የኤርትራ ዕጣ ፈንታ ከኢትዮጵያ ጋር የተያያዘ ነው ብሎኛል፤›› በማለት አምባሳደሩ ያቀረቡትን አስተያየት ያጣጣሉት ፕሬዚዳንት ኢሳያስ፣ ‹‹ቆይ ከየት የመጣ ነገር ነው? መቼ የት ነው እንዲህ ያልኩት?›› የሚሉ ጥያቄዎች አቅርበው፣ ‹‹ይኼ ማለት’ኮ ኤርትራ ያለ ኢትዮጵያ የለችም እንደማለት ነው፤›› ብለዋል፡፡

    በአጠቃላይ የኸርማን ኮኸን የዕርቅ ሐሳብ በተመለከተ ግን ሌላ ቀደም ሲል የተገመተ መላምት ሰጥተዋል፡፡ የኤርትራና የአሜሪካ ግንኙነትን ለማዳስ ያለመ እንደሆነ በመግለጽ፡፡ ‹‹ሐሳቡ የቀረበበትን ጊዜ፣ ይዘቱን፣ ቋንቋውንና አቀራረቡን ስትመለከተው ይኼው ነው፡፡ ኤርትራ ግን አትፈልገውም፡፡ ከአሜሪካ ጋር የሚሻሻል ዝምድና ምንድን ነው? መጀመሪያ ራሳቸው በራሳቸው በፈጠሩት ውሸት የኤርትራን ሕዝብ ለመቅጣት ከጀሉ፡፡ ‹‹እናዳክማቸዋለን፣ እንቀጣቸዋለን፤›› በማለት ምላሻቸውን ይቀጥላሉ፡፡ አሜሪካውያን ስለኤርትራ ሕዝብ መወሰንም አለመወሰንም መብት እንደሌላቸው በማተኮር፡፡

    የወያኔ ሴራ በሚለው ተደጋጋሚ አገላለጻቸው፣ ‹‹በኤርትራ ሕዝብ ላይ ከፍተኛ ጥፋት ከፈጸሙ በኋላ የኤርትራ ወጣቶች ከአገር እንዲኮበልሉ ካደረጉ በኋላ አሁን የምን ዕርቅ ነው?›› የሚል ሐሳብ አቅርበዋል፡፡

    ፕሬዚዳንት ኢሳያስ በቅርቡ በሱዳን ፕሬዚዳንት አማካይነት ለጠቅላይ ሚኒስትር ኃይለ ማርያም ደሳለኝ የዕርቅ ሐሳብ የያዘ ደብዳቤ መላካቸውን አንዳንድ ሚዲያዎች ዲፕሎማቶችን ዋቢ በማድረግ የዘገቡ ሲሆን፣ ፕሬዚዳንቱ ግን የዕርቅ ጥያቄው ከኢትዮጵያ መንግሥት የሚቀርብ መሆኑን፣ እሱም ቢሆን እውነትነት እንደሌለው ነው በዚሁ ቃለ ምልልሳቸው የተናገሩት፡፡

    ጠቅላይ ሚኒስትር ኃይለ ማርያም ደሳለኝ ባለፈው ሰኞ ለጋዜጠኞች በሰጡት መግለጫ፣ በፕሬዚዳንት ኢሳያስ ቃለ ምልልስ ላይ አስተያየት የሰጡ ሲሆን፣ የተባለው ከእሳቸው የማይጠበቅ መሆኑንና በፕሬዚዳንት ኢሳያስ የሚመራው መንግሥት አስመራ እስካለ ድረስ ምንም አዲስ ነገር እንደማይጠብቁ ተናግረዋል፡፡

    ፕሬዚዳንት ኢሳያስ አፈወርቂ በአሁኑ ንግግራቸው በመስከረም ወር አካባቢ የሰጡትን ቃለ ምልልስ ሙልጭ አድርገው የካዱት ይመስላሉ፡፡ ኤርትራ ውስጥ ያለው የልማት እንቅስቃሴና ሌሎች የመንግሥት አውታሮች በተለይ በኤሌክትሪክ ኃይል ዕጦት ምክንያት መቆሙን፣ እንዲሁም የአሰብ ወደብ ምንም ጥቅም እየሰጠ እንዳልሆነ ጠቅሰው፣ ከኢትዮጵያ የኤሌክትሪክ ኃይል ለመግዛት፣ ወደቡም ዓለም አቀፍ ደረጃውን በጠበቀ ሁኔታ በማዘጋጀው ለኢትዮጵያ የማቅረብ ዕቅድ እንዳላቸው ተናግረው ነበር፡፡

    ይህም በሁለቱም አገሮች መካከል ለሚዲያ ይፋ ያልሆነ የዕርቅ ጥረት ስለመኖሩ፣ እንዲሁም እንደ አምባሳደር ኸርማን ኮኸን የመሳሰሉ ሰዎች ፕሬዚዳንቱ ዕርቅ ማድረግ ይፈልጋሉ የሚል አመለካከት እንዲኖራቸው ሳያደርግ አልቀረም፡፡ የአሁኑ የኢሳያስ አስተያየት ግን የዚህ ተቃራኒ ነው፡፡

    በአሁኑ ንግግራቸው ግን የኤሌክትሪክ ኃይል ከኢትዮጵያ በመግዛት ላይ ከምትገኘው ከሱዳን እንገዛለን ብለዋል፡፡ ይህ የብዙ ኢትዮጵያዊያንን ቀልብ የሳበ ቢሆንም፤ ምን ማለት እንደሆነ ለብዙዎች ጥያቄ ሆኗል፡፡ ቀደም ሲል በጂቡቲ በኩል ወደ ኤርትራ በሚገቡ የቡናና የጤፍ ምርቶች ምክንያት ኤርትራ በዓለም አቀፍ ደረጃ ካሉ ቡና አቅራቢዎች ግንባር ቀደም አድርጓት እንደነበር አንዳንዶች ያስታውሳሉ፡፡

    ፕሬዚዳንት ኢሳያስ ከአገር ውስጥ ጉዳዮች በተጨማሪ በምሥራቅ አፍሪካ ፖለቲካ እ.ኤ.አ. በ2014 ምን ዕቅድ እንዳላቸው ጥያቄ የቀረበላቸው ሲሆን፣ ‹‹አሁን አላወራውም እንጂ በክልሉ ጉዳዮች ቀጥተኛ ተሳታፊ ለመሆን ዕቅድ አለን፤›› ብለዋል፡፡ በአካባቢው እየመጣ ያለው ለውጥ የኤርትራን ቀጥተኛ ተሳታፊነት እንደሚጠይቅ የገለጹት ኢሳያስ፣ በአካባቢው ፖለቲካዊ ጉዳዮች ከዚህ በፊት በተለየ ሁኔታ ለለውጦች ምላሽ መስጠት ሳይሆን፣ ቀድሞ ዕርምጃ በመውሰድ የለውጡ አካል ለመሆን የኤርትራ መንግሥት ዝግጅቱን አጠናቋል ብለዋል፡፡ የፕሬዚዳንቱ ንግግር ወዴት እንደሚያመራ ግን አመላካች የለም፡፡ ከዚህ በፊት ጎረቤት አገሮችን በመውረርና በመተንኮስ እንዲሁም በሶማሊያ ጣልቃ በመግባት የሚታወቁት ፕሬዚዳንት ኢሳያስ በተያዘው አዲሱ የአውሮፓውያን ዓመት ግን ሊገልጹ ያልፈለጉት ጉዳይ እንዳለ ጠቁመዋል፡፡

    I wish we Ethiopians as well as Eritriens live in peace . Tired of killing each other. Tired of seeing and hearing our brothers and sisters die in every corner of the world as an immigrant. Tiered of elder parents of ours cry. Tired…….unfortunate ….misery.
    We still hate and disrespect each other while we both do not have home, do not have nowhere to go….Hopeless…We are dead alive even if we do not stink! Damn !!!

    We receive the fire, that we never had it before between us, from the Italians; a fire filled with ill will power. No body wanted to extinguish that fire but instead we still throw it on each other.
