Eritrea/Ethiopia: Signing of the Algiers peace accord in pics

28 Dec 2004, EDnews - In December 2000, Eritrea and Ethiopia solemnly signed and agreed to abide by the Algiers peace Agreement that ended their two-year border war in the presence of high dignitaries and representatives of the international community including the UN, USA, EU, OAU/AU as witnesses and co-signatories of the accord.

Annan, OAU Secretary-General Salim Ahmed Salim, Nigerian President Olesegun Obasanjo, Togolese President and OAU chairman Gnassingbe Eyadema, US Secretary of State Madeline Albright and US President Clinton's envoy, Anthony Lake, attended the signing, according to agency reports.

Annan (UN), Salim (OAU), Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika and EU representative, Rino Serri, also signed the agreement, as witnesses, the Algerian television report said. Today and 4 years later, while Ethiopia is denying and trying to renenge on this accord, the Guarantor Nations (US, EU, UN, AU, ALGERIA) need daily reminder about their solemn obligation to ensure strict adherence to this treaty as was scripted and witnessed by them 4 years ago. That is why Ethiopia's flagrant defiance of the decision of the Boundary Commission has persisted for now 32 months with  impunity- The inaction of the guarantor nations.

Annan has once again reminded the UNSC that "prolonged stalemate in the peace process between Eritrea and Ethiopia raises serious concern" implying that the UN better act soon lest things get out of hand
