Eritrea’s Sawa Defense Training Center open for ethnic Amhara youngsters : President Issaias

Eritrean president Issaias Afeworki declared that ethnic Amhara youngsters from neighboring Ethiopia can receive military training at the Sawa Defense Training Center, a military academy in the Gash- Barka region of Eritrea.

The president said his government is accused of recruiting and offering military training to Amhara youngsters with no any evidence.

It is to be recalled that the Tigary People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) had accused Eritrea of offering military training for tens of thousands of Ethnic Amhara youngsters.

He said Sawa is open for any Ethiopian who is interested in taking military training and knowledge. The president’s invitation has been warmly welcomed by Ethnic Amhara people.
