ENDF condolences to the people of Ethiopia and the EPRDF
On the passing away of Prime Minister Meles Zenawi
We have learned with shock and deep
sadness the news of the untimely passing away of His Excellency Prime Minister Meles Zenawi.
Regardless of our differences with his
government’s policies concerning the Ethio-Eritrean border demarcation issue and their approach to Eritrean opposition
politics, we acknowledge that Mr. Zenawi was a great statesman and prominent African leader who played a monumental role in
recognising and supporting the Eritrean people’s legitimate right to self-determination and independence.
On behalf of the Eritrean National
Democratic Forces (ENDF) and the genuine pro-Democracy Eritreans, we convey to the people of Ethiopia and the EPRDF party our
condolences and sympathies at this sad and critical times, wishing them stability and smooth transition of power.
Chairman and former Eritrean diplomat
