AU urges restraint in Djibouti-Eritrea border spat

AU urges restraint in Djibouti-Eritrea border spat

Maalim, who is closely following the recent developments between Djibouti and Eritrea after the withdrawal of Qatar's peace keeping forces from the border between the two countries, is highly concerned by this development, said an IGAD statement.

Qatar did not give a reason for the move, which came after Eritrea and Djibouti sided with Saudi Arabia in an ongoing diplomatic dispute between Qatar and its larger neighbor.

Eritrea's top diplomat to the AU on Wednesday said the country wants to solve the problem with Djibouti peacefully.

Ethiopia called on all parties for restraint as tension between Djibouti and Eritrea has intensified, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.

Clashes broke out between the Horn of Africa countries in June, 2008, which triggered several days of fighting that killed a dozen Djiboutian troops. Eritrea had initially denied making any incursions, accusing Djibouti of launching unprovoked attacks.

The UN Security Council then requested both sides withdraw from the area, before the neighbours accepted a Qatari request to mediate and deploy peacekeepers. They cut ties a week ago, accusing Qatar of backing Islamist militants and Iran, something Doha strongly denies.
