UN studying Ethiopia’s five-point plan for peace with Eritrea

26 November 2004

The United Nations is studying a new peace plan by Ethiopia which aims to end the country’s long-running dispute with neighbouring Eritrea, a spokesman for the world body said today.

Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi submitted the five-point peace plan to Parliament on Wednesday.

“The United Nations is currently studying the plan, and how it could lead to the early and full demarcation of the border,” a UN spokesman said in a statement released in New York.

The UN currently has a peacekeeping operation, known by the acronym UNMEE, which is deployed between the two Horn of Africa countries to monitor the ceasefire and ensure the observance of security commitments.
