Interview with Voice of America about Eritrea

The audio of my interview on the Ethiopian government's new policy towards the government of Eritrea with Voice of America's Betre Siltan appears below:


  1. Are you an employee of the Ethiopian government? That is what you sound like in this interview. You did not even answer most of interviewer's questions (he was trying to be objective). Just curious. Do you have any financial arrangements with them? You should disclose this if it is the case. Thanks for your informative site.

  2. Dear anonymous,

    Let me be clear. I do not now and never have had any financial relationship of any kind with the government of Ethiopia or any other foreign government. My views are my own.

    You are, of course, welcome to disagree with them. You may also be assured that my public criticism of the Ethiopian government’s military intervention into Somalia in 2006-2007 did not ingratiate me with the EPRDF.
