Statement by the Spokesperson on the situation in Ethiopia

1 min read

Recurring reports of violence in several universities and clashes in different parts of Ethiopia are deeply worrying, in particular as regards their increasingly ethnic nature. This includes the recent incidents in Oromia-Somali regions, causing many casualties and the destruction of properties. The European Union extends its condolences to the families of the victims.

It is essential that independent investigations on all acts of violence are conducted. The setting up by Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn of a task force to investigate the most recent killings is a welcome step. All sides, including regional and federal police forces, should show restraint to ensure full protection and safety of all citizens.

The conflict resolution mechanisms enshrined in the Constitution should be activated swiftly in order to allow for a peaceful settlement of the issues. We remain convinced that only an inclusive political dialogue with all stakeholders will address the grievances of the population in a peaceful and constructive manner.
