The Ethiopian former foreign affairs minster,Seyoum Mesfin, organized two successive meetings in Frankfurt (Germany) last weak, reserved for Tigrians and Eritreans supporting the Tigray People Liberation Front (TPLF, hard core of the ruling EPRDF).
According to our sources, some tens of people attended these meetings, not all of whom were in agreement with him. He argued both times for renewing the "Tigray-Tigrigna” alliance, which "brought us to victory” in the armed struggle against President Mengistu Haile Mariam.
Trying to win over his audience, Seyoum Mesfin insisted on the fact that he was no longer aminister and was no longer part of the TPLF executive structure.
Nevertheless, a portion of the audience did not take up Seyoum Mesfin’s viewpoint, considering to be harping back to the past.
