ENTC sends request for diplomatic recognition to Italian government
The Ethiopian National Transitional Council (ENTC) has sent a communique to Mr. Giulio Terzi di Sant’Agata, Foreign Affairs Minister of Italy, requesting a diplomatic recognition.
The letter was submitted to the Italian foreign minister by ENTC’s diplomatic representative in Italy, Mr. Yonas Legesse.
The letter explains ENTC’s mission, and discusses the worsening political, economic and security crises in Ethiopia, as well as the need for the Italian government to help with a peaceful transition to democracy.
The Transitional Council was founded at a 3-day conference in Dallas, Texas, that was convened from July 1 – 3, 2012, with the participation of representatives from over 30 cities and countries.
The Transitional Council plans to submit similar requests to several countries through its diplomatic representatives in the coming few weeks.
