The government of Ethiopia and the forces of Tigray agreed to create peace in the civil war


NAIROBI – Ethiopia’s government and forces in Tigray officially signed a ceasefire on Wednesday, threatening to break away from Africa’s second most populous country after two years of brutal war.

“Both Ethiopian conflicts have agreed to end the war and resolve it through an orderly, orderly, coordinated and coordinated disarmament, restoration of law and order, restoration of services, and unhindered delivery of humanitarian supplies. [and] Protection of civilians,” said Olusegun Obasanjo, High Representative of the African Union for the Horn of Africa.

Although the full document has not yet been made public, the agreement was broadcast live on television and was praised by Ethiopian Federal Government’s National Security Adviser, Redwan Hussain, and Getachew Reda, who controls most of the People’s Liberation Front of Tigray. Tigray region of Ethiopia.

Redwan thanked the countries that supported Ethiopia and wiped it out a little on others. The European Union suspended budget aid to Ethiopia, and the United States suspended favorable trade conditions for Ethiopia amid human rights abuses, gang rapes, and mass killings of civilians by the Ethiopian army and its allies during the war.

“Our sisters and brothers from Africa must resolve their differences based on the principles held by Ethiopians,” he said. “Hopefully others will learn from … such generous and strong guidance.” But he added: “Now is the time to renew our relationship with our partners.”

Ato Getachew, a member of the TPLF, said that fighters and civilians are dying and asked for the agreement to be implemented immediately.

The conflict erupted in November 2020 after Tigray soldiers took control of military bases across Tigray after the relationship between the new central government and the TPLF, which had controlled ethnic politics for thirty years until the appointment of Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed in 2018, worsened.

It will be the second time the two sides have stopped fighting during the conflict. A government-imposed five-month cease-fire in March allowed much-needed food aid convoys into the region, but that accord collapsed in late August amid renewed fighting. Since then, the Ethiopian army together with the Eritrean soldiers have captured the western, northern and southern areas of Tigray. Several airstrikes have been carried out, killing many civilians.

Two important parties were not represented in the conflict, the neighboring Eritrean government and its soldiers, who control a large part of Tigray and represent Ethiopia’s Amhara region, which has a long-standing border dispute with Tigray.

Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki has been an enemy of the TPLF and sees its leadership as an existential threat. The Amhara leaders, who are determined to maintain their disputed territory, have formed a strong relationship with Eritrea because of their distrust of the Ethiopian central government and strong hostility towards the TPLF.

Opposition party Amhara National Movement Member of Parliament Mr. Desalegn Chani Dannew said that he accepts the announcement, but said that he was disappointed that the Amhara claim was not officially accepted due to the dispute with Tigray. He also said the agreement lacks clarity on justice and accountability. The Tigray fighters also killed civilians in groups in the Amhara region, according to the United Nations.

Eritrea’s Minister of Information could not comment on the matter.

The conflict has already killed tens of thousands of people, starved hundreds of thousands more, and destroyed health and education infrastructure in parts of northern Ethiopia.
