‘Now is the time to put an end to the suffering’, stressed Mr. Guterres. ‘It is time for all parties to recognize that there is no military solution, and it is vital to preserve the unity and stability of Ethiopia which is critical to the region and beyond’.

To give peace a chance in Ethiopia, the UNSG appealed for action on three fronts: an immediate end to hostilities; guaranteed, unrestricted humanitarian access, together with the re-establishment of public services in all affected areas; and the creation of conditions that ‘allow for the start of an Ethiopian-led political dialogue to find a solution for the crisis’.

‘Such a dialogue can contribute to addressing the underlying causes of the conflict and ensure Ethiopian voices direct the pathway to peace,’ Guterres said.

The UN chief added that the UN would continue to work together with the African Union and other partners ‘to support the Ethiopian people on the way to peace and reconciliation’.
