Days after propagating in regards to the “battle-hardened” power of Tigray Individuals’s Liberation Entrance (TPLF) Mr. Herman Cohen, Former Ambassador, Asst. Secretary of State, is now saying that TPLF is dropping the warfare.
In a Twitter message on Tuesday, he stated “In spite of the TPLF’s military strength, the Ethiopian government is now marching on Mekelle. If Abiy gains control of Tigray, it would mark a return to strong central rule in #Ethiopia, as it existed while the TPLF was in power for 29 years.”
But he went on to advocate perpetuation of TPLF devised ethnic-based federation in Ethiopia.
“Best solution for #Ethiopia is a truly decentralized federal system, in which Ethiopia remains unified but each ethnic nation has the self-determination they desire. If Abiy wins militarily, international community should still press for this outcome through political dialogue,” he stated.
Mr. Cohen was a key man on the 1991 London convention which was known as to dealer peace between three insurgent teams then (considered one of them was Oromo Liberation Entrance and remains to be a insurgent group working from inside Ethiopia) and Colonel Mengistu Hailemariam’s authorities which collapsed in Could 1991.
He tends to have a crucial view of Abiy Ahmed’s administration. In a Twitter message on Monday, he remarked Abiy “is determined to bring all of “Ethiopia under his authoritarian control.”
Many Ethiopians are likely to see Mr. Cohen as a Godfather of the TPLF administration in Ethiopia. Mr., Cohen not too long ago revealed a guide entitled “US Policy Toward Africa: Eight Decades of Realpolitik, is now available.”
