Prime Minister Meles government and Isaias Afeworki Regime

The Ethiopian government has effectively transition from being known as a TPLF/EPRDF government to Prime Minister Meles government...Prime minister Meles is set to retire in the coming three years. His legacy as a government head will be remembered for generations to come. Given all what has happened so far do you think Prime Minister will be happy to retire from politics without resolving the problem Ethiopia has with the one man regime in Eritrea? Do you agree or disagree the problem Ethiopia has with Eritrea today is significant enough that prime minister Meles has to address while he is in office? In other words, is this a must for PM Meles to resolve if he wants to keep his otherwise magnificent achievement as a government head untarnished?
