Eritrea and the Ethiopian Peace Agreement

 Le Monde published on 15 November 2022 an article titled "Eritrea's Shadow Looms over Ethiopian Peace Process" by Noe Hochet-Bodin.  

The Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF) is waiting for security guarantees from Addis Ababa that Eritrean forces are leaving Tigray Region.  TPLF disarmament of heavy weapons will be done concurrently with the withdrawal of foreign forces from the region.  The challenge for Abiy Ahmed is to persuade Isaias Afwerki to respect the cease fire and remove his troops from Tigray Region.
