Ethiopia Government Ready For Peace Talks, Intends To Continue Operations In Tigray

Written by on October 17, 2022

The Ethiopian Government has reiterated its willingness to hold peace talks but said it will continue military operations in the northern region of Tigray, a day after the African Union (AU) called for an “immediate” end to hostilities there.

In addition to the African Union, the United Nations, the United States and the European Union (EU) have expressed concern at a recent escalation in fighting in Tigray, a week after peace talks in South Africa were announced but finally postponed.

According to Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, a comprehensive and negotiated settlement that brings lasting peace is necessary.

The spokesman of Iran’s Foreign Ministry, Nasser Kan’ani has urged European countries to refrain from taking “meddlesome” actions in its domestic affairs, warning that Tehran will respond in kind to any interference from European Countries.

Recall that Protests erupted in Iran over the death of a young woman, Mahsa Amini, who died in hospital three days after she collapsed in police custody.

He warned that Tehran will take “a reciprocal and proportional action” in case of interference in its internal affairs.

His remarks come before an European Union foreign ministers meeting in Luxembourg to discuss Iran’s approach toward the recent riots across the country.
