The Peace talks between the Ethiopian Government and the ONLF faction failed
The Government of Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia held a peace talks with faction of the ONLF led by Gen. Mohamed Omar Osman from 15th to 17th October 2012 in Nairobi, Kenya. The meeting was a continuation of earlier peace talks started two months ago in Nairobi. It is to be recalled that a peace agreement has been signed with the major section of the group in 2010.
The peace talks failed after the ONLF group refused to accept and respect the constitution of Ethiopia and work within the constitutional framework. This round of the peace talks was part of the Ethiopian Government’s resolve to pursue a peaceful resolution of the conflict.
The Ethiopian delegation was led by H.E. Siraj Fegessa, Minister of Defence of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia.
