Washington Post is Woefully Wrong with its “Facts’’

The Embassy of Eritrea to the US is utterly dismayed by the Opinion of the Editorial Board published on August 27 that blindly endorses the unwarranted US sanctions imposed on Eritrea without rudimentary scrutiny and knowledge of the underlying facts. The Embassy is indeed appalled at multiple, gratuitous, assertions that the WP makes and which are grossly at variance with actual facts.
1. The Washington Post oddly attributes the genesis and eruption of the conflict in the Tigray region of Ethiopia in early November last year to “a civil dispute turned bloody”. This is astounding and discredits, by and in itself, the whole article. The war started on the night of November 3 when the TPLF launched massive, premeditated, assaults across the entire contingent of Ethiopia’s Northern Command. This War of Insurrection was characterized, by the TPLF itself, as a “blitzkrieg” to neutralize the Northern Command and capture its weaponry which consisted almost 80% of the total arsenal of the Ethiopia’s National Defense Forces (ENDF). The pronounced aims of the TPLF were to then topple the Federal Government. Subsequent acts of aggression against Eritrea were part and parcel of this scheme. The TPLF fielded its 250,000 militias and Special Forces. A misrepresentation of facts on this scale is both inexplicable and inexcusable.
2. The allegations of r**e and massacres are, again, untrue and recycled by Amnesty International and other actors on the basis of “testimonies” collected through distant phone interviews without rigorous substation and due validation. This is precisely why, in responding to the unwarranted sanctions imposed on Eritrea’s Chief of Staff, Eritrea’s Foreign Ministry requested the US Administration “to bring the case to independent adjudication if it indeed has facts to prove its false allegations”, (Full Press Release is attached).
3. The Washington Post claims that “the UN sanctioned Eritrea for nine years, in part for refusing to withdraw troops from neighboring Djibouti, and the country did not relent’’. Again this is utterly false. The UN Security Council imposed unjust resolutions against Eritrea because Eritrea strongly opposed TPLF-led Ethiopia’s military intervention in Somalia in 2006, under the prodding of the US Administration, to topple the Union of Islamic Courts. Eritrea strongly opposed the wrong labeling of the UIC and Somalia at the time as the “epicenter of terrorism in the Horn’’. US Assistant Secretary for Africa, Jendayi Fraser, then vowed that “Eritrea will be punished for its stand’’. In retrospect, and years later, even US Administration officials have admitted the folly of those policies. Nonetheless Eritrea was victimized and the US invoked all its diplomatic clout to impose sanctions on Eritrea under the trumped-up charges of supporting “Al-Shebaab” that really came to life after the misguided ousting of the Union of Islamic Courts. In as far as the border dispute between Eritrea and Djibouti is concerned; Eritrean troops never crossed their border.
To conclude, the Washington Post is evidently entitled to take certain positions on the conflict in the Tigray region of Ethiopia. But, it cannot, in all honesty, twist facts and events to create a fictitious narrative.

The Embassy of the State of Eritrea strongly rejects a May31,2021post published on the
website, todaynewsafrica.com, entitled “CivilianAbusesbyEritreanTroopsinOromiaand
restofEthiopia”.
This "ournalist” from Today News Africa, Noah Pitcher, presents an article deluged with
outlandish lies and irresponsible accusations against Eritrean Defense Force without any evidential
value whatsoever. The intent of these unfounded allegations is to soil the reputation of Eritrean
Defense Force and hence Eritrea, in alignment with the manufactured narrative being relentlessly
created to dismantle the promising future of the Horn of Africa.
Eritrea has repeatedly made it clear that, as the TPLF committed the act of war in broad daylight
beyond the Ethiopian borders by attacking Eritrea’s major cities with long range missiles, Eritrea
had no choice but to reserve its right to defend itself and secure its southern borders, while fully
respecting the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ethiopia. It has abundantly become clear that
Eritrea’s detractors are frustrated for they could not satisfy their famished appetite of demonizing
the country even with their envisaged campaign of the “Tigray atrocities”, and thus, extending
their lies to as far as Oromia and other remote Ethiopian states.
Noah Pitcher of Today News Africa is another tool in this continuous diatribe to succumb Eritrea
to her knees in an attempt to further their evil destabilizing agenda in the Horn of Africa.
Apparently honest, thorough and fact-based information is no longer a necessity in “journalism”.

Sloppy Journalism at its Worst

In its “February 12” publication entitled Tigray, Ethiopia”, US-based Magazine, The Week, carries a defamatory story on Eritrea that was apparently cobbled together from dubious sources without minimal verification for factual accuracy and veracity.

The article states: “When Abiy (Ethiopia’s PM) sent troops to Tigray to quell what he said was a political rebellion, thousands of Eritrean troops unofficially joined the fight on the side of Ethiopian government forces”.

First off, this portrayal is a gross distortion of the perilous events that unfolded in Ethiopia in the first week of November last year. As it is well known, the TPLF launched on November 3, a pre-emptive, multi-pronged, and massive attack on the entire positions and bases of Ethiopia’s Northern Command. The TPLF’s goal was to neutralize this largest contingent of the Ethiopian Armed Forces and seize its entire weaponry which constitutes almost 80% of Ethiopia’s ordnance. All this information is in the public domain; much of it in the very chilling words of senior TPLF leaders, who even bragged about the “historic Central Committee Meeting” which endorsed the dangerous war plan.

The turmoil and mayhem that would have ensued in Ethiopia, and the larger region as a whole, had this evil act of war succeeded is unimaginable. But when this dangerous attack callously launched during a harvest time was foiled - remnants of this cabal and network of lobbyists, interests groups and institutions that had supported the TPLF for over 27 years have gone into overdrive to make a scapegoat of Eritrea by fabricating narratives of “harrowing atrocities”.

The Week has obviously fallen into this trap without asking fundamental questions. In the first place, Eritrea’s foreign policy is predicated on cardinal principles of international law; namely the full respect of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of its neighbors. As to the conduct of Eritrean soldiers, the track record is there. Let alone after independence, even during the armed struggle, the EPLF army adhered fully to the Geneva Conventions and protected captured enemy soldiers. In this regard, the EPLF army extended significant support to the EPRDF forces during the last years of the Mengistu regime. Its impeccable track record on full compliance with all the Geneva Conventions on human and humanitarian rights is a matter of historical record.

The Embassy of The State of Eritrea to the United States is deeply disappointed and expresses its profound dismay with the statement issued yesterday by the U.S. Embassy in Asmara on its page, with unwarranted and unfounded gross accusations against Eritrea. The Embassy has also ironically contradicted itself in its message by calling for an “independent” investigation after endorsing unsubstantiated accusations by the sworn adversaries campaigning to vilify Eritrea. These types of statements, as unexpected as it was, will help neither the efforts underway to improve the bilateral relations between our two countries, nor the peace and friendship that has positively been progressing between Eritrea and Ethiopia.

Press Release: Former US Ambassadors to Ethiopia: Fanning the flames of Conflict

Four former US Ambassadors to Ethiopia wrote an open letter to Ethiopia’s Prime Minister last week expressing their “concern on the recent political developments in the country’’. The open letter was published in the Reporter on January 26 this week upon their express request.

While we prefer not to comment on their biased views in regard to the situation Ethiopia, we cannot but express our profound dismay at their provocative and ill-intentioned swipe at Eritrea in their letter. The Ambassadors insinuate a non-existent threat from Eritrea to the “territorial integrity of Ethiopia’’.
Let us first skim through the track record of these Ambassadors whose collective service in Ethiopia spans the critical years – from 1999 until 2016 – of intermittent wars and conflict between Ethiopia and Eritrea.

1. On 5 February 1999, the TPLF regime falsely claimed that Eritrean fighter aircraft had bombed the town of Adi Grat. This was a pernicious lie advanced by the TPLF to rationalize the second huge offensive that it launched the next day in flagrant breach of the Moratorium on Air Strikes brokered by President Clinton and signed by the two parties on July 7, 1998. It must be recalled that one of the signatories of the open letter, Ambassador Shin – as indeed was the case with the US State Department – kept mum even as the TPLF regime launched a massive war that raged for more than a month inculcating the loss of tens of thousands of lives and huge destruction of property.
2. In September 2003, the TPLF regime formally rejected the EEBC Arbitral Award that was rendered in accordance with the provisions of the Algiers Peace Agreement that was brokered by the US/EU, and that upheld the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Eritrea and Ethiopia on the basis of the colonial treaties and international law. Again in this instance, the US State Department, and the then US Ambassador to Ethiopia, actively endorsed the TPLF’s violations of international law and its continued occupation of Eritrean sovereign territories.
3. In June 2016, the TPLF regime launched an unprovoked and massive offensive against Eritrea on the Tsorona front. The response from the US or its resident Ambassador in Ethiopia followed the same pattern of active endorsement of these perilous and illicit acts.

Throughout these dark years, Eritrea was on the receiving end of incessant acts of military aggression and violation of its sovereignty and territorial integrity by the TPLF regime. Yet, its principled stance – amplified at Independence Day on 24 May 1998 in the keynote address of President Isaias Afwerki – was and remains the same: “Eritrea does not covet an inch of the territory of its neighbors; nor will it yield an inch of its territory”.

This is history today. The state of permanent war has come to end when both countries signed the Joint Declaration of Peace and Friendship in Asmara on July 9, 2018. The Agreement stipulates, among other things, “the end of the state of war…the implementation of the EEBC decision” and heralds a “new era of peace and friendship between the two countries”.

In the event, the allusion by these Ambassadors to potential territorial war between Eritrea and Ethiopia can only be disingenuous in content and vicious in intent.
