“To our esteemed and brotherly people of Eritrea:
It is known that the peoples of Tigray and Eritrea share common language and culture. We have fought together and shared burial places in the fight against facist [fascist] Derg. The people of Tigray and TPLF supported and sacrificed in support of the right to self-determination of the people of Eritrea. However, in the past two decades, we entered into an unnecessary war and encurred [incurred] regretable [regrettable] loss. TPLF and Tigray have been trying to recitify [rectify] the matter. Even though the progress in the past one and half year was promissing [promising], it has been stalled due to unknown reasons.
We assure once again that the people of Tigray and TPLF are ready to do anything necessary to make sure the relationship continue[s] in a manner that benefits all and ensures sustainable peace. We call on the people of Eritrea to play its role for sustainable peace[.]”
