Ethiopia Denies Threat of Severing Ties with Sudan


Khartoum – The Ethiopian Foreign Ministry on Wednesday denied news reports on social media that Foreign Minister Wokneh Gebeyehu threatened Sudan to sever diplomatic relations if it does not control smuggling of illegal arms across the border.
Ethiopian Foreign Ministry spokesman said, in an interview with the Ethiopian news agency, that what reported by some social media that the foreign minister had threatened to cut off ties with Sudan is baseless, adding that the newspaper Reporter, which quoted the minister’s speech, used his speech out of context, noting that the newspaper was informed about the issue and it apologized.
He said that the two countries’ relations are historical and cannot be easily cut, adding,” What brings us together is greater than what divides us,” adding that Sudan and Ethiopia are working in close coordination on fighting smuggled illegal weapons.
