Ethiopia/Eritrea: more on the border dispute

The International Crisis Group (ICG) has put out this report on the tensions between Ethiopia and Eritrea over their border. The report is an easy read ... and relatively short at 16 pages.

The ICG is calling on the international community to become more involved in the dispute to "make implementation of the demarcation more politically palatable [emphais mine]."

Recall from yesterday's post that Ethiopia's request for the UN to get involved in the issue has already been rejected.
