Press release issued by the Department of Foreign Relations
The Ethiopian Prime Minister, Dr. Abi Ahmed Ali, presented the so-called Sheger project and the artifacts of the imperial palace on the 14th of August 2020. As part of the presentation, he showed an old map of Ethiopia and pointed to the Red Sea, indicating it showed the marine resources. The Ethiopian Prime Minister’s speech is an infringement on the Eritrean national sovereignty that was won through a lot of sacrifices that lasted for 30 years and concluded by a popular referendum observed by the United Nations.
The Eritrean Liberation Front calls on the Ethiopian government to correct its position and avoid such references that endanger the cordial relations between the two brotherly peoples.
Glory and eternity to our martyrs
