April 3, 2019 (KHARTOUM) - Eritrean government Wednesday has accused Qatar, Sudan and Turkey of supporting opposition radical Islamist groups to hamper bilateral relations between Asmara and Addis Ababa.

Relations between Khartoum are strained for several years because of Khartoum support to Addis Ababa before the reconciliation between the two countries in July 2018.

However, this stunning rapprochement was not followed by a normalization between Eritrea and Sudan as President Isaias Afewerki shunned all attempts made by Addis Ababa saying he wanted to Khartoum to explain why it had accused him of supporting opposition attacks and closed the border in January 2018.

However, relations between the two capitals remained calm as they avoided escalation.

Nonetheless, the Eritrean government on Wednesday morning issued a statement accusing Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) and Qatar’s operational services of backing the opposition (“Eritrean Muslim League” under the mantle of “Eritrean Ulama’s League/Eritrean Rabita-i Ulama”).

The statement said that the Qatari services funded the groups and neighbouring Sudan has allowed its territory to be used for "the nefarious aims".

"These subversive acts have been ratcheted up especially in the past year with the singular aim of obstructing the peace process and positive developments in the ties between Eritrea and Ethiopia in particular and the whole Horn of Africa region in general," said the Eritrean government

One year ago, on 23 March 2018, Asmara accused Sudan and Qatar of supporting a radical group led by Mohammed Jumma who had plans, according to Asmara, to organize political and military activities against the government of President Afewerki.

Sudanese government did not react to the Eritrean accusations.

    I hope the Eriterea is not snoozing. The merchants death are out in force and are desperately shopping for a big war here in Eastern Africa. And South Sudan is their most coveted ’center of their universe’ to be ’fought over by the regional countries’ and then the ’cabals’ would be supplying arms and munitions to their so-called allies>>>

      The plotters of ’wars and peace’ cabals projected a long while ago that "from Eriterea, North Sudan right across the She’ll region’ there is going to be wars. Libya has gone, central Africa republic is gone, South Sudan was about to go, but we are not going to let it happens on our watch. Mali is partially gone, Tunisia is already sorted out and Algeria is being currently sorted>>>

        Burundi was to be fixed up by these secretive cabals, but the current Burundian president and Burundian people don’t want to have any of their fixes. With Rwanda, Paul Kagame is their NEW WORLD ORDER ’inductee’ just like Mr. Barack Obama, Rails Odinga, Riek Machar, Pagan Amuom, Thabo Mbeki and bunch of creepy internationalists>>>

          The fact here is, every ten years when these ’world secretive banking cartels and cabals’ are about to go bust, they set up countries against countries and people against people’ This is how they have maintained their so-called WESTERN CIVILIZATION ever since. These European secret societies own the world financial systems. The so-called US reserve bank isn’t being owned by the American people>>>

            but by these world secretive cabals. They own virtually everything in European, Hong Kong, South Korea, the US, Australia, New Zealand and other countries. They control most of world media. And is what they had effectively used to brainwashed most of the European and American population and even here in Africa. And these secretive cabals ultimate aim is their NEW WORLD ORDER GOVERNMENT>>>

              to be governed by the ’elites’ in a feudal-like governance. These secretive cabals are very very powerful and very dangerous. They own almost every politician in Europe, America and other countries. Most of the US elections some of these days are just shows. Many people are the world are being deliberately led into abyss by cabals>>>

                These world secretive cabals own the NATO. NATO is their mercenary force. When the NATO bombed Libya in 2011, Qatar and Saudi Arabia were the ones that paid the bill. The whole world had been mesmerized by these cabals. And the should world happen to know the dangerous game being played behind the scenes by these evil cabals, then they would go to the streets every where around the world>>>>

                  But these secretive cabals have a very powerful and dangerous force. The most glaring example is, there was what was called "occupy world street" a few years ago. And these secretive cabals unleashed their forces on the protesters in New York. Another low scale simmering protests is going on in France are symptoms>>>

                    By the way fellows, l am a conspiracy theorist. I just don’t like these evils. They have killed our people and hold our country and our people (South Sudan and South Sudanese people hostage) because we have not given them (cabals) our central bank and our resources’ keys to them to control our country and our people. And of they have their puppets/stooges in our who worship them. Otherwise,>>>
