    Abdi…
    are you denying that there are not thousands of Eritreans in Ethiopia?
    even PIA doesn’t deny it, at least you can see thousands of Eritreans in Tigray and Afar states.
    how do you dare to say that there are not Eritreans, as thousands of Eritreans flee our country i am sure some of your friends or even your families are fleeing…
    so dont try to deny facts… rather just preach truth, peace and love among people so that our region will be full of love peace and development.
    and you have to understand unless there is peace no development at all.
    and try to avoid war and hate… so that the people of east African can have good relationship.

      Real eritreans don’t flee to Ethiopia,unless otherwise connected to Agames in away or another or has to be a desperate worthless opposition wanna be only.no one seeks refuge in his/er enemy’s country unless she//he pay a price and that’s to betray his/er own people the same way you are doing there selling your nation and ppl korakur woyane .but i believe there are eritrean refugees in Sudan and many other nations.

    Hi Abdi/ubud kelbi
    First of all you have no any morale to talk about eritrea & eritreans. you are blinded selfish pfdj puppet. No one can deny that in what situation eritrea is now with ur insane cusin In the palace. Our people are suffering more than any time during this time. But u r living in western nation by welfare & never woring in ur life. So how come u r able to say some about this suffering kiddnaped people by ur stinking mouth? don’t forget there will be sometimes that ur master will be ended up in such tragedy by the brave young eritreans. definetly very soon eritrea will be liberated like libya & egypt & ur days r numbered. So at least try to use ur own brain to realize that ur not droven by pfdj hatered propoganda any more. live for ther Truth & justice. By the way Tigreans what ever u call them they those accomodating ur family & friends if u r reall eritrean. i hope u got my idea. be grown up bro
