  • Description

    The Ethiopian Ambassador to Kenya has ruled out the involvement of any Cuban troops in Eritrea, as in Ethiopia's Ogaden war against Somali forces last March. The Ambassador, Mr. Mengiste Desta, said on Friday (2 June) that the Ethiopian Government's campaign in Eritrea would not be as big as the offensive in the Ogaden. Mr. Mengiste's comments were made after he held a news conference on the current situation in Northern Ethiopia. It was the first time an Ethiopian official had ruled out the possibility of a Cuban-led campaign in Eritrea where for 16 years secessionist forces have fought for autonomy from the Addis Ababa Government.
