Peace Process In Ethiopia Very Important Lesson, Marker Not Just For Africa, But For Entire Globe: South African Foreign Minister

The peace process in Ethiopia is a very important lesson and marker, not just for Africa, but for the entire globe, South Africa’s Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Naledi Pandor said.

Recall that the federal government of Ethiopia and TPLF signed a peace agreement in South Africa on the 2nd of November 2022, ending the two-year-long conflict in northern Ethiopia.

South Africa’s Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Naledi Pandor who is participating in the African Union Summit, talked to ENA on the importance of the peace deal in Ethiopia.

The minister elaborated that Ethiopia’s peace process has very important lesson and is a marker.

” This peace process in Ethiopia is a very important lesson and marker, not just for Africa, but for the entire globe. Because we have a conflict in Russia and Ukraine, we have been saying there should be a negotiation that diplomacy must be allowed to play a role. Because when people talk guns are silenced, but when people are not talking, then you have more arms, you have more death, you have more destruction. The lesson from Ethiopia is that let us sit around the table. Let’s put our issues on the table. Let us resolve them as brothers and sisters and create conditions of peace in the continent.”

Pandor mentioned the privilege South Africa felt in hosting Africa’s led peace talks of Ethiopia.

“We were very honored when the African Union decided that the peace talks between the federal government of Ethiopia and TLPF would occur in South Africa,” she elaborated.

The minister elaborated that South Africa was really gratified that the African Union and the government of course, felt that we could play a role in ensuring peace on our continent and in our sisterly country, Ethiopia.

“We are glad that my colleague, the foreign minister and deputy prime minister of Ethiopia, provided a report to the summit and indicated that the processes of the peace agreement are on course and all is being done by the various parties to ensure that there is a sustainable peace that’s all we want for our continent,” she added.

At the opening of the Ordinary Session of the Executive Council, Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Affairs Minister of Ethiopia, Demeke Mekonnen said that the AU led peace process demonstrated the true meanings of ‘African solutions to African Problems.’

“The implementation of the peace agreement is on course. We are redoubling efforts to ensure full implementation of the peace process agreement. We have continued expediting humanitarian aid to the region,” Demeke assured.

The South Africa’s minister added: “I think it’s very important that the African Union always keeps in touch with developments on the continent and doesn’t allow issues to be taken up by external parties, because sometimes those external countries fuel conflict rather than help to resolve problems.”

“ Now, Africa is standing up and I think in particular, I must affirm Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, because I think he is a person who is very committed to Africa solving its own problems. I think it’s a role that we established the African Union to play on the continent, ”she pointed out.

Pandor stressed stating that ”so for me, we must do more for preventative diplomacy. We must avoid conflict on the continent,” and ensure peace and stability all over the continent, we Africans must silence the guns.

Noting it’s always a tragedy when arms and conflict become part of the continent, she said, adding “we have the tradition that we discuss matters, this is our culture and whether there are problems, we sit down and discuss them and resolve them peacefully as nations.”

US Federal Court Agrees to Rehear TPS Case

A federal appeals court has agreed to rehear a case that could determine the fate of more than 300,000 immigrants living in the U.S. legally on humanitarian grounds.

Immigrant advocates are calling last week’s decision by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals a victory, at least for now. The court vacated a 2020 ruling issued by a three-judge panel of the California-based appeals court.

The California panel’s ruling would have allowed the government to end Temporary Protected Status for immigrants from El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua and Sudan.

TPS allows migrants whose home countries are considered unsafe to live and work in the U.S. for a period of time if they meet certain requirements established by the U.S. government.

Ahilan Arulanantham, the immigration attorney representing TPS holders, told VOA his clients were happy the courts agreed to rehear the case.

Arulanantham said the case is part of a long fight over the TPS policy that began in 2018 when a district judge blocked the former Trump administration from ending the program for El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua and Sudan.

At the time, the federal judge said the terminations were not properly justified.

In 2020, the three-judge panel of 9th Circuit judges said the courts are not allowed to second-guess the government’s TPS decisions. Attorneys representing TPS holders asked for the case to be reheard, and the 2020 ruling never took effect.

“Then the election happened and the Biden administration won. And of course, President [Joe] Biden had promised to protect the TPS holder community on the campaign trail and on his website … And so we entered into settlement negotiations, and those negotiations actually lasted, like, 18 months,” Arulanantham said.

But the negotiations collapsed in October 2022.

“Now 11 judges are going to decide,” Arulanantham said. No date has been set for the court to hear arguments.

The decision to rehear the case has no immediate impact on TPS beneficiaries of the affected countries.

But Arulanantham said if the program were to end, TPS holders would quickly lose employment authorization.

“And that could happen in a matter of months after the terminations go into effect,” he said.

According to the latest figures from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, there were 241,699 Salvadorans, 76,737 Hondurans, 14,556 Nepalis, and 4,250 Nicaraguans enrolled in the TPS program.

In a statement to the media, the plaintiff in the case, Cristina Morales, who is a TPS holder of more than 20 years and a leader in the National TPS Alliance, said, “For five years, my family has faced a roller coaster of emotions — from fear of terminations to elation from these court victories.”

Morales urged the Biden administration to return to the negotiating table and reach an agreement.

In November 2022, the Biden administration allowed TPS holders affected by the case to maintain their work permits and deportation protection for an extra year after the date set to end the program, or until June 30, 2024, whichever date comes later.

The Biden administration also created more TPS designations including Afghanistan, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Ukraine and Venezuela, allowing hundreds of thousands of immigrants to have temporary legal status.

And the government announced TPS extensions for Haitian and Sudanese immigrants living in the U.S. But it has yet to announce extensions for immigrants from El Salvador, Nicaragua, Nepal, and Honduras.

Haitians living in the U.S. have TPS protections until Aug. 3, 2024, while the Sudan designation extends through Oct. 19, 2023.

The TPS program does not lead to permanent U.S. residency.
