There is no ceasefire between the forces of the Islamic Courts Union and Ethiopians, says chairman of the Somali opposition groups.

Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed told a group of reporters in Saudi Arabia on Monday that opposition groups would not stop attacking Ethiopian soldiers. We will not give in to the Ethiopians…We are still attacking them and no ceasefire deal has been signed between the ICU and the Ethiopians,” he noted.

The head of the Alliance for the Re-liberation of Somalia reiterated that the alliance would continue its fight against Ethiopian forces until they are kicked out of Somalia.

Sheikh Ahmed said the opposition groups in Djibouti are ready to enter peace talks with the Somali government after a government is established in the country, Press TV correspondent said.

Meanwhile, the ICU leader called on the Islamic world to extend its support for the displaced and starving Somali people.

The Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD) comprised of seven countries in East Africa, has invited the entire Somali Transitional Federal Government (TFG) to the Kenyan capital Nairobi for an extraordinary summit. It also sponsored the 2002-2004 peace talks that resulted in the establishment of the TFG.
