Djibouti-Ethiopia pipeline: Signed today to be functional within two years

Recommended Posts

All that hoopla and unreal propaganda gives way to reality. Economic feasibility, historical reliability, future developments and current financing...all came together to reality. The Mugadishu, Addis Ababa tour and propaganda pushed by UAE through Asmara/Eritrea never made sense.

The Djibouti Ethiopia pipeline always made sense from every aspect, including even political changes in the region. Kililka, Djibouti, Somaliland, Puntland will always be closer to each other regardless of shifting sands.

With Eritrea the smallest of changes is an earthquake and no body in the right mind will invest on secretive one man promises. ONLF and others should support this and bargain that the management on Ethiopian and Djibouti sides and workers be from Kililka and Djibouti. Other investments in water works, roads, education and technical training...comes with.
