(Communicated by the Foreign Ministry Press Department)

In reference to the remarks of Israel’s Ambassador in Ethiopia (Thursday, March 19 2009), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs wishes to clarify the following:

In his statement about Eritrea, the Ambassador of Israel in Ethiopia exceeded his authority and position.

His comments were made without instructions from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Jerusalem, which was surprised by his remarks.

Israel expresses its regrets that these remarks were made, and reiterates its position, which desires a peaceful solution to the conflicts in the Horn of Africa
