Prime Minister Abiy thanked Eritrea
Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed expressed his gratitude for the people and government of Eritrea for the great support following TPLF attack on Ethiopian Army.
PM Abiy said Eritrea supported the Ethiopian forces from the onset of the conflict. They stepped in to protect their border, Abiy said this in response to questions in parliament on Tuesday.
Prime Minister Abiy said Eritrea are holding the trenches ENDF held for 20 years as it left it to go after TPLF deep inside Tigray. If left empty TPLF could re-attack Eritrea as it did with rockets and considering the security issue on the border it would create a huge vacuum.
The Federal government reserves the right to deploy forces, including Amhara special forces or any other, to any corner of the country where support is needed and threats exist. To assume/treat these forces as external and apply misplaced pressure is erroneous.
