Those who advocate of bringing Isaias "from the cold", it seems, have an agenda of their own which directly challenges the interest of Ethiopia.

The reason I wanted you to read my work was to enable you to have an in-depth understanding of the ENS, which over time has degenerated into a slave-like open-ended obligation. The information I provided you in the conversation we had was in no way different from the findings of my on-going studies.
