    Are you authirizing yoyrself to commit public denial while condemning others as dikala, teref dergi ahiya etc??

    ዕለታዊ ዜና DW International 24 ለካቲት 2013 this report is misinterpreted by the DW intl and Dedebit media.

    At https://www.state.gov/secretary-blinkens-call-with-ethiopian-prime-minister-abiy/, the Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken didnot say PFJD or Higdef but Eritrean troops. I am not ashamed to call myself tigraway. Because I donot want to assicaite myself with these sophiticated and subtle bandatat who want to conceal what Eritreans are doing to us by giving another name. There is no reason to translate the term “Eritrean troops to “Army of PFDJ”, The People’s Front for Democracy and Justice (abbreviated PFDJ; Tigrinya: ህዝባዊ ግንባር ንደሞክራስን ፍትሕን).

    Why donot call Army of Prosperity party instead of ENDF, The Ethiopian National Defense Force (ENDF)???

    Traitors are still operating in dedebit media who benefit from Eritreans in personal intimacy and financial ties.
