Everyone including the US Administration are perhaps regretting that they listened to the British now . I also doubted the story because, if, as described, Mr. Bevan was the Head of Britain's diplomacy, his trip was not in any news report. I thought that the name, James Bevan was a fake name manufactured by the Woyane, and the quote attributed to him from "Addis Ababa" that said: "We (the British government) are not contemplating any sanctions on Ethiopia and I do not think most of the international community is either," James Bevan, Africa director of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, told a news conference...." (Ethiopian web-site) was untrue.
Perhaps it is not true.May be Mr. James Bevan is the NGO's Director of Africa and Commonwealth Ofice serving the multinationals that are milking the Third-World.
...If as claimed by the Ethiopians (which I doubt), Mr. James Bevan is the "Africa Director of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office", isn't he, as an official of Great Britain, and one of the Five Permanent Members of the United Nations Security Council, contradicting what his government had decided in its UN resolution that demanded of Ethiopia to abide by the ICJ/Boundary Commission ruling.
The ruling stated that the ICJ ruling was "final and binding".The resolution emphatically stated and warned the party that did not adhere to the ICJ rulingt would be sanctioned.
I smell fish (a rotten one at that) and fully agree with Emnet Hadera.There is something fishy about this whole Eri-Ethio "dialogue" drama!!If "dialogue" was a must for solving problems of the world, why isn't the USA government dialoguing with North Korea ? Why doesn't Mr. Bevan
propose this to the US Administration
? The USA Administration
must have its reasons for rejecting the "dialogue".
