I believe that the sanctions by the US Government are a mode of obsolete engagement, especially because countries such as Ethiopia are developing and are developed in many aspects, Billene Seyoum, Foreign Press Secretary for the Office of Prime Minister, said.

On that way, Seyoum commented Washington’s decision to exclude the country from the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA), an agreement established to facilitate and regulate the trade exchange between the United States and countries of the continent.

The White House announced on January 1, 2022, Ethiopia’s exclusion from AGOA due to its “concerns about human rights violations perpetrated by the Government and other parties in the widespread conflict in northern Ethiopia.”

AGOA’s suspension provoked complaints and other reactions, included that of Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, who accused the United States of not taking a stand against the TPLF.

This group has been accused of violating human rights and has been declared terrorist by Parliament.
