  1. Well, it is very hard to believe unless the withdrawal is verified by independent body. According to credible sources, Eritrean forces (EF) are present in every corner of Ethiopia. They are positioned in regions such as Tigray, Oromia, Amhara etc and the size of the foreign troops involved in the Ethiopian civil war is enormous.

    The Ethiopian Government (EG) Spokeswoman talked on the withdrawal of EF in
    the press conference just only for PR and to avoid extra sanction on her government. If the EG wants to be trusted, it must allow the Independent bodies (e.g. UN or NATO) to enter and verify the pull out of Eritrean and other foreign forces from Ethiopian soil.

    At present, the EG has failed to protect and defend the sovereignty of the country. Nonetheless, sovereignty is a collective responsibility ; you peoples, nations and nationalities of Ethiopia must stand now and claim to not only the sovereignty of your country, but also your right for your self determination.

    Victory to peoples, nations and nationalities of Ethiopia !!!!

  2. Another joke from the showman who has humiliated a great country. There is no way Eritreans will leave Ethiopian territory without force now they have conquered the country.

    In Isaias words,” there would have been no Ethiopia without Eritrean forces”. On Abiy “ he is a child who cannot run such a large countr0.

    Keep dreaming but there is no way Isaias will leave Ethiopia on his own accord.

  3. great, after always lying about it (really everything), now Abiy/PP/Eritrea is obviously just trying to buy more time to starve Tigray people to death and try to crush their rebellion, exactly the same a
    how Eritrea/Abiy denied Eritrea involvement and said many times Eritrea pulled out, Eritrea not there, Eritrea will leave now, Eritrea will leave later.   Obviously, they are just despotic dictators both prosecuting crimes against humanity against their own peoples, so malicious, pathological lying to others is really par for their course, and should be stiffly punished by Western powers (given the Eastern powers love/support such despotic authoritarian states, in their own image).

  4. Eritrean military should be allowed to stay as long as the Federal government allowed them to stay. It is no body is business.

    1. Are you concerned about Abiy or your people and the sovereignty your country?

      First of all, Abiy is not an elected leader and this implies that he has no legitimacy to rule the country. Moreover, he betrayed the people and the country by inviting foreign forces to invade the the country and allow them to humiliate his own people. So, I do not understand why you supporting Abiy and his government? Could not you imagine the legacy of of Abiy ‘s government? Ethiopia is on a cross road. For the sake of Ethiopia and the people, Abiy must resign.

      Abiy is the first leader in the history of the country who has compromised the sovereignty of Ethiopia with his stay on power. So, I do understand why you are defending him? Do not you feel the pain Abiy and Issaias caused to the people of Oromia, Tigray, Afar, Somalia, Benshangul and Gumuz etc? Many credible source have reported on the genocidal and war crimes committed in Tigray, Oromia and Benshangul and Gumuz by Ethiopian and Eritrean forces. Probably, you are not belonging to the nations and nationalities that are directly affected by the war Abiy and Issaias declared on them. But, you are a human. As humans, we must come out and condemn the evil action of these both dictators and atrocities committed on these people of Ethiopia.

      Without Abiy, Ethiopia will be a better place to live. Therefore, Abiy must go. We must raise our voice for the unconditional and immediate withdrawal of foreign troops from Ethiopian territory. We must also demand for an independent investigation on genocidal and war crimes, and all type of war atrocities committed in Tigray, Oromia, Benshangul and Gumuz etc. Sharing the pain of others and to be a voice for the voiceless is one way that can hold the Federal Republic of Ethiopia together.

      Ethiopians must call for a cease fire and an all inclusive political dialog. Otherwise, the fate of Ethiopia may not be different than that of former Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. To save Ethiopia and bring peace to the region of Horn Africa, we need to call the removal of Issias and Abiy from power and struggle not only to remove, but also bring them to court for their war atrocities and depriving their people of democratic rule and the right for self determination.

      Victory to the peoples, nations and nationalities of Ethiopia !!! Victory to peoples of Eritrea!!

    Currently, the World agrees that Ethiopia will be a better place to live without Abiy. Therefore, Abiy must go. Further, we must raise our voice for the unconditional and immediate withdrawal of foreign troops from Ethiopian territory. We must also demand for an independent investigation on genocidal and war crimes, and all type of war atrocities committed in Tigray, Oromia, Benshangul and Gumuz etc. Remember, sharing the pain of others and to be a voice for the voiceless is one way that can help hold the Federal Republic of Ethiopia together.
