That terrorist organization broke the ceasefire agreement and started the third phase of the war it provoked itself and now calls for peace to confuse all countries and the international organizations, Mahi said.
Our Government is ready for peace while the TPLF deploys its belligerent agenda in the country’s northern region, the ambassador said during a meeting with European Union representative in South Sudan Timo Olkonen.
He also considered unreliable and unethical the recent report about the war between the federal authorities and the Front, issued by the group of experts of the International Human Rights Commission.
Ethiopia does not recognize it and urged “Western nations and bodies to play a constructive role instead of looking at the conflict negatively,” according to an account of the meeting published by the Ethiopian Embassy.
The two representatives discussed the implementation of the South Sudan peace agreement, and Mahi explained Ethiopia’s contribution to achieving it definitively and thus helping stability in East Africa.
