I was worried about that myself. As was posted previously. The situation has not changed for Ethiopia, it is one of the most stable(if not the MOST stable) country in Africa with a decent seized army and it looks more than capable of defending its interests. 

MIT should also be notes that the loan from the Saudi development fund for the work on the port seems almost like a stamp of approval from a major power in the region. 

If allana agrees an off take with china, I don't think they  allow any distribution to their potash supply from any crazy elements outside of Ethiopia
