Border dispute: Ethiopian military rules out war with Sudan

An Ethiopian General has ruled out war as an option to resolve an intractable border dispute with neighboring Sudan, warning that armed conflict will be destructive for both nations.In a briefing on Tuesday, Lieutenant Bacha Debele said Ethiopia will never enter into war with Sudan and wants to resolve their differences through negotiations.

“You can take the border dispute issue with Sudan to the international court. What you cannot resolve by law was the conflict with TPLF Junta,” he said.

He blamed a third party for aggravating the border skirmish between Sudan and Ethiopia. 

The specifics of the border between Sudan and Ethiopia have long been in dispute, but a 2008 compromise had allowed for a “soft border” in the al-Fashaga region, letting Ethiopian farming communities remain in place. 

The two neighbours have different perspectives on the trigger for recent flare-ups in the disputed area.

Sudan has been accused of amassing troops along the border.
