The Eritrean Ministry of Information issued a press release accusing its neighbor Sudan, as well as Addis Ababa, of conspiring to support opposition groups.
In turn, Asmara indicated that those governments agreed to deploy armed groups along the borders to facilitate attacks and urge instability.
Meles Alem, spokesman for the Ethiopian chancellery, stressed that such allegations are totally false, since there is no conspiracy to conspire against the authorities of that territory.
Meanwhile, Alem pointed out that the offer to have negotiations and unconditional dialogues continues despite the current confrontation between the two countries.
Eritrea and Ethiopia waged a border war between 1998 and 2000, which caused the death of some 70,000 people, and since then they have been involved in a climate of armed conflict along their common border points.
In addition, the Eritrean government maintains a tense relationship with Khartoum, while accusing each other of supporting rival rebel groups.
