This article reports that tensions have risen once more between Eritrea and Ethiopia over disputed border territory. A return to full-scale conflict looks unlikely but prospects for progress on demarcation are poor, given the reluctance of the international community to exert pressure on Ethiopia. While the major international powers are theoretically agreed that both sides must abide by their treaty commitment to accept the commission's ruling, the international community seems reluctant to exert any real pressure on Ethiopia to comply, even though Ethiopia's dependence on international aid would give donors considerable leverage.
