The idea of UN's fact finding mission to the Ogaden region in Ethiopia was opposed at first by some embassies in Addis Ababa including the British Embassy, EZ Post learnt. British Embassy sources told this blog that the embassy was first resistant to any independent mission to Ogaden as the Ethiopian government opposed it. The position of the British Embassy was supported by other unnamed western embassies .
Some diplomats in Addis Ababa who feared a Darfur in Ogaden were shocked with the resistance of the embassies. It took the EU's insistence to make the embassies finally accept the decision.
