The United Arab Emirates called on Ethiopian leaders to return to talks and end a military conflict that’s pitting the country’s central government against the dissident northern Tigray state, the UAE’s official news agency WAM reported.

UAE Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed “stressed the need to return and implement the rule of law” in Ethiopia, which is “key to security and stability in the Horn of Africa and the region,” WAM reported on Sunday.

The minister said the UAE has been in contact with many of its partners in Africa and the region to help put an end to the conflict by peaceful means, according to the statement.

The hostilities in Ethiopia erupted on Nov. 4 after months of tension between the federal and regional governments and have triggered a humanitarian crisis.

Tigrayan authorities say 100,000 people have been displaced, and the United Nations has warned that an additional 1.1 million people may need aid. No official figures of the number of people who’ve been killed are available.

  1. It easy for two party if they think for people rather than they being for their authority. Spetialy the TPLF has to sacrifice him self for his nation in democratic manner rather than rigid only on his point of view focusing to sustenance of his authority. Unless they came to point giving their hand to federal government their talking to international community is nothing.B/C some will remember what was happening opposition B/n federal and Tigray regional state in the past two year which was the basic cause of the coming of Prime Minister of Abiy which is paving the way of democratization in the country.

    1. Wow how could you be so ignorant and call that evel dictator a democrat! Well I can see how your pocket is full of money by supporting bloodsucker Abiy! He is probably worst than Hitler but time and conditions doesn’t allow him.

  2. $stopTheWar inTigray There is no victory as we are loosing Ethiopians on both sides. Civilians stuck with out power, water, medicine, and communication letting their families worrying. Hundreds dead and over 30,000 flee their home in three weeks. The more this continued, the more we are going to lose innocent civilians lives adding to the pandemic. Regardless of which side wins, it is a lose lose situation!
    I hope UAE’s and the international community call for peace will get answer and stop this tragedy.

  3. The current war in Ethiopia is the war carried out between Tigre and Amhara to dominate Economic and political power of Ethiopia by allinating the rest of Ethiopian Nations and Nationalities.

  4. Abiy is not the right man to govern Ethiopia the man is without mercy these wounds will never heal it deeper than the eye can see
