Peace Held Hostage by Ethiopia for Thirteen Years

Peace Held Hostage by Ethiopia for Thirteen Yearsby Ghidewon Abay Asmerom | Thirteen years ago this day, on December 12, 2000, Eritrea and Ethiopia signed a Peace Agreement in Algiers, Algeria with representatives of the United Nations, the African Union, the European Union and the President of Algeria as guarantors and witnesses.

Based on this historic Agreement an independent EEBC (Eritrea-Ethiopia Boundary Commission) was mandated to delimit and demarcate the disputed Eritrea-Ethiopia border and the parties had said they “agree that the delimitation and demarcation determinations of the Commission shall be final and binding.” When they signed the Algiers Agreement they were committing themselves that they “shall respect the border so determined, as well as the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the other party.”
