African Union Chair Calls for Unconditional Cease-Fire, Peace Talks in Ethiopia

The chair of the African Union on Sunday called on those involved in the two-year-old conflict in Ethiopia’s northern Tigray region to implement an immediate, unconditional cease-fire and agree to direct peace talks.

AU chair Moussa Faki said he was following reports of escalating violence in Tigray with grave concern.

“The chairperson strongly calls for an immediate, unconditional ceasefire and the resumption of humanitarian services,” the AU said in a statement.

Ethiopian government spokesperson Legesse Tulu, military spokesperson Colonel Getnet Adane, Redwan Hussein, national security advisor to the prime minister Abiy Ahmed and Abiy’s spokesperson Billene Seyoum did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Getachew Reda, a spokesperson for the Tigray forces, did not respond to requests for comment.

The Ethiopian government and its allies have been battling Tigray forces on and off since late 2020. The violence has killed thousands of civilians and uprooted millions.

African Union-led peace talks proposed for earlier this month were delayed for logistical reasons.

Both sides have blamed each other for starting the conflict.

    Humble Reaction
    a). ” Cease-Fire, Peace ” >>> IT IS A DREAM IN OUR BELOVED BLACK AFRICA.

    b). WE BLACK AFRICANS are inside out, up and down , thoroughly mixed-up
    that we lost our direction as well as as our dream, in totality.

    c) And so COLONIALISM succeeded in making us neither true Black African nor
    any other copied camoufladged .

    d) WE ARE SADLY and COMPLETELY LOST in the JUNGLE of COLONIALISM
    — NOT INOUR OWN JUNGLE.

    e) IF in doubt, as to what we became, we have a piece of cloth called ‘necktie’
    around our necks where we can be choked to death for any disobedience to our
    master, the everlasting colonialism.

    CRY, CRY, CRY MY BELOVED BLACK AFRICA to your hearts’s content, as it is the only salvation left for YOU, THE MOST HONEST HUMAN BEING ON EARTH.
