The House Foreign Affairs Committee Issues Statement on Escalating Violence in Ethiopian Civil War

August 6, 2021

Washington, D.C.¬†–¬†Today, Representative Gregory W. Meeks, Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee,¬†released the following statement¬†in response to¬†recent developments in¬†Ethiopia¬†:¬†

‚ÄúI share the Administration‚Äôs deep concern over the escalating violence spreading throughout Ethiopia, the rapid militarization of the conflict, and the lack of progress toward a negotiated ceasefire. The recent ejection of international humanitarian actors, the armed incursion into Lalibela – a holy site and home of renowned UNESCO World Heritage sites – and the grim discovery of bound and possibly tortured corpses in the Tekeze River indicate parties to this conflict remain callously indifferent to the suffering of the Ethiopian people. All parties must accede to an immediate cessation of hostilities and avoid taking Ethiopia down the path toward civil war and state collapse.’

I call on the Tigrayan Peoples Liberation Front to withdraw from Amhara and Afar regions, as well as on Eritrean troops and Amhara forces to leave Tigray. African and other international partners have an important role in bringing the Government of Ethiopia and other parties to the conflict closer to the negotiating table and to an inclusive national dialogue without further delay.‚Ä̬†
