Eritrea requests the UN Security Council to mediate Over Conflict With Ethiopia

"Eritrea is appalled by the statement of UN Secretary General, Mr. Ban-ki Moon, on the TPLF attack against Eritrea on the Tsorona Front. The facts of the matter are fully known to the Secretary General. In the circumstances, we find the statement that apportions equal blame to the victim and the aggressor and calls on “both sides to show restraint” untenable.This unfortunate statement can only corrode further the moral authority of the Secretary General’s Office. Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Asmara 17 June 2"
There were clashes between soldiers of the two countries last weekend.
Eritrean authorities have called on the United Nations Security Council to intervene to stop the escalation of clashes at its border with Ethiopia, RFI said. They are calling for the summoning of the UN Security Council to seek ways of resolving the conflict following clashes between the forces of the two countries from Saturday, June 12 night to Sunday, June 13 afternoon.
Though calm is said to have returned to the border area, reports say tension reached a peak last weekend when there were clashes between the Eritrean and Ethiopian forces at the border locality of Tsorona. BBC reported that Ethiopian and Eritrean authorities exchanged accusations over who started Sunday's fighting at their disputed border. Ethiopia's Information Minister Getachew Reda described the clashes in the Tsorona area as "an Eritrean initiative". Earlier, the Eritrean government said that Ethiopia had "unleashed" the attack. Mr Getachew reportedly told news agencies that there were significant casualties on both sides, insisting that more were on the Eritrean side.
The US government through the spokesperson of the Department of State, John Kirby has called on the two parties to express restrain and engage in political dialogue. The worries come after Ethiopia on Tuesday, June 13 talked of the possibility of full scale war. UN Secretary Ban Ki-moon has also called for dialogue in order to promote stability and lasting peace in the region.
