Tigray Front starts handing over heavy weapons to Ethiopian gov’t

Addis Ababa, Jan 12 (Prensa Latina) A dispatch from the National Defense Forces confirmed on Thursday that the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF) has begun handing over its heavy weapons to the Ethiopian Government.

Fulfilling the peace agreement signed in Pretoria, South Africa, and the arrangement negotiated for disarmament in Nairobi, Kenya, the handover began as planned, under the established conditions, the document stated.

Armored tanks, missile systems, rockets, cannons, mortars, and other kinds of artillery of different calibers are part of the set of weapons in possession of the Front, according to the text.

Military personnel from different countries and African Union experts oversaw the handover protocol in the town of Agulae, around 30 kilometers northeast of the regional capital Mekelle, in the Tigray region.

For the Ethiopian Government and observers, this step facilitates the implementation of the pact with the TPLF aime at restoring constitutional order and ensuring stability in the country’s northern region.
