    Good wish! After all, Ethiopia won means of dialogue. Eritrea is forced to send delegates to Addis to face the outcome. I hope Algeria and other peace procurators will be present. However, the agenda should be how to implement the already ruled. Otherwise, Eritrea should demand all territorial cleam upon bored treaty post colonialism no more no less. In case miss understanding the Algers agreement will or should be nil and void leaving aside to the people concerned for durable solution.

    Algeria’s positive reaction is understandable, as it was a mediator between the two countries. But no problem is ever solved unless the ROOT source of the problem is solved. And no mediator on Earth can solve the problem without unreserved full cooperation and willingness of the protagonists. And that is outside the realm of probability when dealing with Dictators.

    I am all for peace,it is through a genuine peace that all good things can happen to a society,however a society which is in chronic internal turmoil and never experienced inner peace for a long time because of its leaders,how is it possible the very leaders who reduced it to a state of destitution negotiate for peace on behalf of the people they are trampling under their feet? it sounds like the hyena negotiating with the lion over what portions of the prey they gonna chomp on because the prey have no say. I think the young PM is smart enough to know who he is inviting to his house,and I don’t think he is putting all his marbles on the regime in Asmara to bring a lasting peace between the 2 brotherly nations,if so,this is going to be the most important regional and diplomatic matriculation of his leadership.
