The Ethiopian National Transitional Council (ENTC) has sent a communiqué to the South African Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, the Honorable Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, requesting a diplomatic recognition. The letter was submitted to the Ministry by Ato Israel Wondimu Negash, ENTC’s diplomatic representative in South Africa.
The letter explains ENTC’s mission, and discusses the worsening political, economic and security crises in Ethiopia, as well as the need for the South African 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 all over the world.
Diplomacy is one of the primary tasks that the ENTC general assembly assigned to the leadership at the July 2012 conference in Dallas.
