U.S. officials have urged Ethiopian Prime Minister Abi Ahmed to end fighting in his country. According to the Ethiopian media, Ahmed is now personally at the forefront of fighting the rebels. The United States does not support it. “Diplomacy is the first, last and only option,” the State Department said in a statement.
The 45-year-old Ethiopian prime minister, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2019, announced earlier this week that he would personally go to the battlefield to fight the Tigris People’s Liberation Front (DPLF) rebels with the military. ) The movement is advancing towards the capital, Addis Ababa.
“We know the news that Prime Minister Ahmed is in the lead today,” said a State Department spokesman. The ministry is also reported to be in the forefront of well-known Ethiopian athletes, parliamentarians, party leaders and regional leaders. We urge all parties to refrain from fiery and militant speeches, to exercise restraint, to respect human rights, to allow humanitarian access, and to protect civilians.
Many Western nations have called on their citizens to leave Ethiopia as they fight in northern Ethiopia. According to independent observers, the Ethiopian military, TPLF and Eritrean militants are said to have committed heinous crimes.
