Eritrea: Ethiopia attacked us over border dispute(yahoo)

Posted by Ethio Tribune on June 9, 2012

Ethiopia's government spokesman said Thursday, March 15, 2011 that Ethiopia launched a military attack inside its archrival Eritrea on Thursday, claiming that Ethiopia launched the attack because Eritrea was training "subversive groups" that carried out attacks inside Ethiopia. (AP Photo, File)NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — The Eritrean government said Friday that an attack on its military outposts by neighboring Ethiopia was carried out with the help of the U.S. and meant to divert attention from a decade-old border dispute between the two countries.

Ethiopia said Thursday it carried out a ground assault on the outposts because Eritrea was training “subversive groups” that carried out attacks inside Ethiopia.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged Ethiopia and Eritrea “to exercise maximum restraint,” resolve their differences through peaceful means, and avoid any action that could lead to an escalation of tensions, U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky said. He also urged both sides to respect each other’s territorial integrity.

Eritrea’s Foreign Ministry quoted the Ethiopian government as saying its armed forces on Thursday “penetrated 18 kilometers (11 miles) inside sovereign Eritrean territory to carry out an attack on Eritrean army outposts.”

The ministry statement gave no other details about the military operation and neither government has said anything about damage or casualties…..click here to read the full story from Yahoo News
