July 19, 2011: In his statement delivered by Hailemaraim Desalegne, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of the federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia and Chairperson of the IGAD Council of Ministers at The Informal Interactive Dialogue with members of the United Nations Security Council, he said, 'This is a regime whose behavior has one very clear pattern - shoot first and talk later, if at all. Its problem with Djibouti provides a very clear example. Eritrea, first of all, denied the existence of any dispute; then they accepted that there was a problem after the mediation of Qatar. Lately Eritrea has reverted to saying there is in fact no Qatari mediation. Eritrea has also began the destabilization of the new state of South Sudan, arming militia groups opposed to the Government of South Sudan. It’s impossible to know when or where these sorts of reckless adventures will stop.'
