Cause of the existing popular uprisings in Ethiopia is marginalization of people and domination of minority clique, Ministry underlines

Asmara, 28 June 2011 – The Eritrean Foreign Ministry underlined that the Cause of the existing popular uprisings in Ethiopia is the marginalization of people and domination of a minority clique. The misguided policies and practices on the part of the US Administration also aggravated instability in Ethiopia and the region at large, it added.

Stating that the growing popular uprisings of the Oromo, Amhara, Afar, Tigray, Benishangul, Ogaden, Debub Hizboch and others are being intensified, the Ministry pointed out that instead of addressing the cause of the prevailing popular uprisings, trying to accuse the people and Government of Eritrea has no any legal ground at all.

It went on indicate that the crises that unfolded in the Middle East in the past couple of months emanated from domestic problems and policies serving external forces, as well as total absence of national harmony and rampant corruption of regimes. The Ministry further explained that the existing and future potential threat in Ethiopia, coupled with the failed conspiracies weaved against the Eritrean people have escalated Washington’s frustration and that of subservient entities.

As the TPLF is well aware of, the people and Government of Eritrea support the just opposition of all peoples and the principle of self-reliance, and not a substitute, the Ministry elaborated.  It further noted that the opposition of the Ethiopian nationalities continues to gain momentum due to a just cause and capacity at the domestic level.
The Foreign Ministry underscored that the Government of Eritrea is not inclined to engage in nonsensical squabbles and trap through deviating from the main issue.
