I guess my problem is that there are limitations on what can be done. I suppose the leadership is disappointing. The problem I always have is that I hear people saying there's a lack of political will. I'm not always clear on specifically what the international community thinks should be done.
The problem that Africa faces, the problem that Ethiopia faces and that occurs all across Africa, is that you have state borders that are drawn by outsiders, and that is the challenge that African rulers must contend with from independence forward.
I suppose there is a lack of leadership, but I always want to know specifically what you would say should be done. I don't think that Ethiopia is necessarily being ignored. I think the fact that we're having this discussion today shows that Canada is showing some leadership. Obviously, I know you've had meetings prior to today on this issue.
The challenge is that this is going to be a forever problem because there is not a coherent regime. There are multiple political traditions across Africa contained within one state, and Ethiopia is among the most profound demonstrations of that problem. You have several groups that regard themselves as being entitled to rule and as wanting to assume power in order to protect themselves—not because they're power-hungry but because they regard that as being central to their group's protection.
So there are limitations on what the international community can do, whether or not they want to demonstrate leadership.
