September 20, 2017 (KHARTOUM) – The joint Sudanese-Ethiopian military commission has agreed to develop a five-year plan including all aspects of cooperation contained in the 2009 military protocol signed between the two countries.

In 2009, Sudan and Ethiopia signed a military protocol for a period of three years dealing with the development of the armed forces and ways to secure the common border between the two countries.

Last October, Sudan and Ethiopia signed a memorandum of understanding providing to enhance joint security and military cooperation between the two neighbouring countries to fight terrorism.

Also, in March 2016 during the 14th meeting of the joint Sudanese-Ethiopian technical committee in Khartoum, Sudan proposed to deploy joint border units on the border between the two countries.

On Tuesday, the joint Sudanese-Ethiopian military commission concluded its 16th meeting in Khartoum. At the closing session, the chiefs of staff of the two armies signed agreements reached.

In press statements following the meeting, Sudan’s Chief of the General Staff, Lt. Gen. Emad al-Din Mustafa Adawi said the outcome of the meeting would constitute the “main pillar for the development of military cooperation between the two countries”.

He pointed out to the border protection and the joint work to combat cross-border crimes and the negative movements, saying the meeting agreed to develop a five-year plan including all aspects of the 2009 protocol signed between the two countries.

Adawi thanked his Ethiopian counterpart Samora Mohamed Yunis and his accompanying delegation, stressing the two sides seek to promote the distinguished relations to maintain security, peace and stability for the two peoples.

For his part, Yunis renewed his country’s full commitment to what has been agreed, expressing readiness for joint work to secure the border and fight against illegal activities that seek to compromise the security of both nations.

He said the meeting would contribute to transfer relations to a higher level of cooperation in the security and defence fields, stressing the need to exert more efforts to achieve all objectives.

BBC launches services for Ethiopia and Eritrea 4 hours ago From the section Africa

BBC journalists looking at the new website

The BBC World Service has launched three websites for Ethiopia and neighbouring Eritrea as part of its biggest expansion since the 1940s.

The sites would be a “source of truth” in a region with limited independent media, said BBC editor Will Ross.

The Amharic, Afaan Oromo and Tigrinya sites’ launch will be followed in a few months by the launch of radio programmes in the three languages.

The UK government announced a funding boost for the World Service in 2015.

It paved the way for the expansion drive in Africa and Asia.

“We know that there is a great deal of hunger for audiences in Ethiopia and Eritrea to access a broad range of high quality content in Amharic, Afaan Oromo and Tigrinya,” said Ross, head of the new services.

Eritrea won independence from Ethiopia in 1993 after a 30-year war.

Tensions with Ethiopia remain high across a closed and heavily fortified border.

An estimated 80,000 people died during a 1998-2000 border war between the two states.

Ross said he believed that the potential audience in the two countries – which have a combined population of more than 100 million – was huge, and social media would play a key role in helping to target a younger audience.

“There is also a significant diaspora, which retains strong links with ‘home’. The political situation in both countries has triggered the development of a large vocal, activist presence in the diaspora,” he said.

“The current news choice for many in Ethiopia is either a pro-government platform at home or a vehemently anti-government offer from the diaspora.”

Over 100 Eritreans deported by Sudan, others jailed: U.N. deeply concerned

ERITREA

The United Nations refugee outfit (UNHCR) has expressed deep worry over recent deportations by Sudan of Eritrean nationals – who are either in its territory or on transit to Libya.

Media reports indicate that over 100 Eritreans have been deported in the last few weeks – some after serving jail terms and others immediately after court rulings.

The UNHCR’s point of concern according to a statement issued by a top official in Sudan was that the rights of these refugees were being violated under international laws.

The forcible return of refugees to their country of origin is a serious violation of international refugee law.

“The forcible return of refugees to their country of origin is a serious violation of international refugee law.

“They were deported on charges of illegal entry into Sudan, which is not supported under international refugee law… [These charges] are waived in the case of refugees,” deputy representative for Sudan Elizabeth Tan said.

The offence for which a number of them were jailed was for ‘illegally infiltrating Sudanese territory.’ The website of privately owned channel, Radio Dabanga said a total of 104 Eritreans were affected by the deportations of which there were 30 children involved.

Tensions have been high on border areas between the two neighbours. A recent United Kingdom travel advice asked Brits to avoid travel to areas on the borders with specific mention of Eritrean towns like Tesseney and Barentu all located in the country’s south-west.
