PIBLISHED IN INTERNAL QUESTIONPAPER NO: 9-2013 OF 22 MARCH 2013

MR E H ELOFF (DA) TO ASK THE MINISTER OF INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS AND COOPERATION:

What is government’s official position towards the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF)?

REPLY:

The South African Government supports the democratic process in Ethiopia, a country with which we have close relations. The Government also supports the inclusion of all opposition parties in the political process in Ethiopia. The South African Government realises that the OLF is a political role-player as many others in Ethiopia and encourages the Ethiopian Government and the OLF to find an amicable solution to their differences for the good of the country.
