Ethiopia conflict: Eritrea’s UN ambassador slams US, Western allies for supporting TPLF (E1073)

On this episode, we speak to Eritrea’s UN ambassador, Sophia Tesfamariam. She slams the Western media for their coverage of the war between the Ethiopian government, led by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front, and US and Western support for the TPLF. She also discusses allegations of abuses by Eritrean and Ethiopian soldiers, the peace between Ethiopia and Eritrea that the TPLF has opposed, the prospect of another Libya-style US-led NATO intervention against Ethiopia, and much more. Finally, we speak to Lebanon’s former foreign minister, Farés Boueiz. He discusses the rising power of Hezbollah within Lebanon and the growing tensions between Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, the Gulf, and the US, sectarian tensions in Lebanon that could lead to war at any moment, the deepening economic collapse which the World Bank has called the world’s worst since 1850, and much more.
