Ultimate Resource On Ethiopia

An informal militia comprising Tigrayan youths killed at least 600 Ethiopian civilians identified as belonging to other ethnic groups on Nov. 9, according to an independent human rights body. Ultimate Resource On Ethiopia

The massacre occurred less than a week after the start of a conflict between federal forces and soldiers of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front in the northern Ethiopian region.

The youths, known as Samri, and local security officers went door to door, killing people of Amhara and Wolkait origin in Maikadra, according to the Ethiopian Human Rights Commission. Victims were beaten, stabbed, hacked with machetes or hatchets, or strangled, the commission said.

The death toll could rise as there were individuals unaccounted for at the time of EHRC’s visit to the town, said the group, which is funded by the national government and is based in the capital, Addis Ababa.

Amnesty International said on Nov. 13 that hundreds of people may have been killed. More than 40,000 civilians have fled to neighboring Sudan to seek refuge, according to the United Nations.

“The unimaginably atrocious crime committed against civilians for no reason other than their ethnicity is heartbreaking,” Chief Commissioner Daniel Bekele said in the report.

“We call upon the international community to condemn these atrocious acts of crimes against humanity and its perpetrators in no uncertain terms,” Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed said in a statement. “The government will spare no effort in bringing the perpetrators to justice.”

Debretsion Gebremichael, Tigray regional president, did not immediately respond to text messages seeking comment about the report.

The U.S. National Security Council urged the parties to “end this conflict now” on its Twitter account.

Federal troops invaded Tigray on Nov. 4 after months of tensions between Abiy’s federal government and the TPLF, which has been politically sidelined since he took office in 2018. The national government accuses the TPLF of attacking an army base and says its forces are closing in on Mekelle, the capital of Tigray. The region’s government says the fighting has displaced 100,000 people.

Addis Ababa has so far declined calls for mediation, including one from the African Union. However, at the request of European countries, the United Nations Security Council discussed the issue informally on Tuesday, although African members of the council said mediation needed time.

“The underlying political conflict cannot be resolved by military means. Sustainable solutions require political instruments,” German Ambassador Günter Sautter told the Security Council, according to a statement. “We ask the Ethiopian government to use all possible channels to find a regionally mediated political solution.”

The World Needs To Head Off The Worst In Ethiopia

Allowing fighting between the government and the rebellious Tigray region to drag on could have catastrophic consequences.

Less than a year ago, while accepting the Nobel Prize for his role in bringing peace to the Horn of Africa, Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed offered a reminder to his audience: “War makes for bitter men. Heartless and savage men.” He should need no further reason to call off the war he has started in his own country.

The offensive that Abiy launched on Nov. 4 against the rebellious northern Tigray region is pushing his nation, Africa’s second-largest, toward disaster. Tens of thousands of refugees are fleeing the fighting.

There are fears of ethnic massacres (at least one appears to have taken place already) and of spreading famine. The spiraling hostilities threaten to draw in other ethnic groups and even neighboring countries.

A breakdown in Ethiopia would dwarf in scale the collapses of Syria and Libya. Yet that’s where hostilities might well lead if not checked swiftly.

Abiy says he had no choice but to act after Tigrayan leaders defied the central government, ignored its decision to postpone regional elections during the pandemic, and then allegedly assaulted a military base. Federal officials say they are nearing the Tigrayan capital and will soon arrest renegade local leaders and restore order.

In fact, Abiy should understand better than anyone that there can be no military solution to this conflict. While Tigrayans only account for about 6% of Ethiopia’s 110 million people, they dominated the government and the military for decades under strongman Prime Minister Meles Zenawi.

The region is well-armed and populated with hardened fighters. The arrest of their chosen leaders would almost certainly provoke a fierce and protracted insurgency.

Nor would the subjugation of Tigray, even if it were possible, address volatile and growing ethnic tensions across Ethiopia. A national dialogue is desperately needed to work out a new constitutional balance between federal and regional authorities. Instead, Abiy’s government has in recent months been charging opposition figures with terrorism.

African leaders, the United Nations, the European Union, the U.S. State Department and even advisers to President-elect Joe Biden have all pressed for a ceasefire and a negotiated settlement. They’ve called on both sides to avoid civilian casualties and open humanitarian corridors so that aid can reach nearly a million Tigrayans thought to be at risk. That pressure should only be intensified.

But the international community also needs to appreciate that however challenging prospects for peace seem now, they won’t improve with time. That should spur them to work harder to present the warring parties with more specific carrots and sticks. Sanctions and travel bans should be on the table.

So should much-needed economic aid. The U.S. and EU should work with South Africa, which chairs the African Union, and influential Gulf states to spearhead these efforts. China also has extensive interests in Ethiopia; in theory, this should be an area where Beijing and Washington can cooperate.

Criticism from the Nobel Peace Prize committee and others who once celebrated Abiy’s reform push could have some influence on the prime minister, who still values his international reputation. At the same time, Tigrayan leaders need to take their own steps to end hostilities.

Above all, they’ll have to acknowledge the legitimacy of Abiy’s government, as he will theirs, at least until fresh elections can be arranged. That will be a hard pill to swallow, on both sides — but far less bitter than a senseless and unwinnable war.

Ethiopian Leader Orders Final Assault on Dissident Capital

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed ordered the army to begin an assault on Mekelle, the dissident Tigray state capital, after a 72-hour deadline for its forces to surrender expired.

Abiy ordered an incursion into Tigray three weeks ago, the culmination of months of tension between his administration and the northern state’s ruling Tigray People’s Liberation Front. Tens of thousands of people have been displaced by the fighting and there have been heavy casualties, although no accurate figures are available.

“The last peaceful gate which had remained open for the TPLF clique to walk through has now been firmly closed as a result of TPLF’s contempt for the people of Ethiopia,” Abiy said in a statement on Thursday. “All efforts will be made to ensure that the city of Mekelle, which was built through the hard work of our people, will not be severely damaged.”

More than 500,000 people live in Mekelle and the United Nations has expressed concern they could be caught up in the crossfire during the forthcoming battle. Mounting a land-based assault on the city will be difficult — it is situated in a hilly area accessed by steep, windy roads traversing ravines that drop off hundreds of yards on either side.

The defense force has a strategy to ensure civilians aren’t harmed and will try to avoid damaging heritage sites, places of worship and other property, Abiy said. He urged Mekelle’s residents to disarm, stay home and take all necessary precautions.

The TPLF, once the predominant power in Ethiopia’s ruling coalition, has been progressively sidelined since Abiy took office in 2018. It angered the federal government by staging regional elections in September in defiance of a directive to postpone them and this month Abiy accused it of attacking a military base to steal weapons.

Debretsion Gebremichael, Tigray’s president, has disputed the government’s assertions that it’s seized control of most of the region, and has said his troops are entrenched in defensive positions on all routes leading to Mekelle.

Shortage of cash and basic supplies are widespread across Tigray. Camps housing refugees from neighboring Eritrea could run out of food within a week and lose their water supplies because they can’t access fuel to operate pumps, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

More than 41,000 people, including some 18,000 children have fled the fighting into neighboring Sudan, and cases of malnutrition have been reported among the new arrivals, it said in a report on Wednesday.

The federal government said it had assessed Tigray’s humanitarian needs and it had begun distributing food, medicine, clean water and other essentials in areas under its control.

“The government stands ready to support all Ethiopians that have fled to return to their communities and is committed to work with UN agencies and other humanitarian organizations to protect civilians and help those who need it,” it said in a statement on Thursday.

Mediation Effort

International concern has been mounting that the turbulence could spill over into other restive regions of Ethiopia that have been dogged by protests and violence this year, or into neighboring states.

While Abiy has resisted calls for international mediation in the civil conflict or to institute a cease-fire, the 55-nation African Union has appointed former presidents Joaquim Chissano of Mozambique, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf of Liberia and Kgalema Motlanthe of South Africa to mediate in the crisis. The three envoys are scheduled to hold talks with the government on Friday.

Janez Lenarčič, the European Union’s Commissioner for Crisis Management met Ethiopian Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Demeke Mekonnen in Brussels on Wednesday and told him the conflict could no longer be considered as an internal affair — as asserted by Abiy, according to an official with knowledge of their discussions.

Lenarčič stressed that the hostilities posed a risk to the entire region and Ethiopia could be in breach of international humanitarian law, said the official, who asked not be identified because the talks weren’t public.

“The only solution lies in the urgent cessation of hostilities,” Lenarčič said in a statement. “Until this is not the case, the threat of serious destabilization of Ethiopia as well as the wider region remains.”

Demeke’s office didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

The EU has given Ethiopia more than 44 million euros ($52 million) in humanitarian support this year and another 4 million euros to assist Ethiopians who have fled to Sudan. It is backing the AU mediation effort.

Ethiopia’s Tigray Group, Once Powerful, Now Battles Government Forces In Bid For Survival

Deepening conflict has led to hundreds of civilian deaths and displaced tens of thousands as some analysts fear the country could slide into civil war.

For three decades, the Tigray People’s Liberation Front, a rebel group that evolved into a political party, was the dominant force in Ethiopian politics. It controlled the military, intelligence services and the economy when it governed Africa’s second-most-populous nation.

Now the group, forced from power in 2018, is fighting for survival as federal government forces claim to have seized its last remaining stronghold three weeks after a struggle for control of Ethiopia flared into armed conflict, threatening to tear the country apart.

On Saturday, government forces claimed to have taken control of the Tigrayan capital of Mekelle, home to half a million civilians and thousands of battle-hardened TPLF fighters who had dug trenches and blown up bridges to halt the advance of federal troops.

The government troops appear to have faced little resistance, meaning TPLF fighters have likely melted into the civilian population and hide-outs elsewhere in the state, where regional analysts and Western diplomats say they are preparing to mount an armed insurgency.

Tensions between Tigray and the government reached a flashpoint when Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed postponed national elections due to the coronavirus pandemic and the TPLF held its own local vote, despite the central government deeming it illegal. The rifts exploded into armed conflict on Nov. 4 after the Ethiopian army accused the TPLF of attacking a military base in Tigray and killing many soldiers.

Ethiopia’s government says the TPLF is a “criminal clique” and has vowed to fight the group to the end. On Saturday, Mr. Ahmed hailed the liberation of Mekelle as a victory, prompting thousands of supporters to tweet #EthiopiaPrevails.

But the TPLF has pledged to never surrender and to make Tigray “hell” for the Ethiopian government, raising fears of a conflict that won’t end but simply mutate.

The Tigrayan authorities said late Sunday that they had shot down an Ethiopian warplane, and local television showed footage of a man it said was the pilot. The Ethiopian government couldn’t be reached for comment.

“Tigray didn’t start this war … It is heroically defending against the invaders,” said Getachew Reda, a TPLF spokesman.

Analysts say the conflict is unlikely to end, but will instead shift into a new phase that could still jeopardize the integrity of Ethiopia. “What is being destroyed is not just Ethiopia’s cohesion,” said Alex de Waal, executive director of the Massachusetts-based World Peace Foundation. “Its once-promising model of the developmental state in Africa is now history.”

Founded in the 1970s by a student movement inspired by the revolutionary ideas of Marxist-Leninism, the TPLF grew from a small guerrilla group to become the most powerful armed movement in Ethiopia in the 1990s with thousands of members.

The group’s courageous, lightly armed fighters, backed by the forces of neighboring Eritrea, became national heroes after confronting the widely despised Soviet-backed dictator Mengistu Haile Mariam, waging war in some of the country’s most inhospitable mountainous terrain.

Tens of thousands of Tigrayans died in brutal counterinsurgency campaigns that helped provoke the 1984 famine, prompting a global outcry and the Live Aid concerts. By 1991, the TPLF and its allies had toppled Mengitsu, marching on the capital, Addis Ababa, and emerging as leaders of a ruling coalition named the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front.

The TPLF’s chairman, Meles Zenawi, was installed as coalition leader and became Ethiopia’s prime minister at the head of an autocratic government, which followed a Chinese model of liberalizing the economy while keeping a stranglehold on politics. Under TPLF stewardship, Ethiopia’s economy grew at nearly 10% a year for roughly two decades, transforming lives of many of the country’s 110 million people. But the growth didn’t come without a cost:

Tactically astute and ruthless, the TPLF brooked no dissent, detaining or disappearing tens of thousands of people. Resentment festered among Ethiopia’s other substantially larger ethnic groups who felt marginalized from politics and the economy. The TPLF helped insulate itself from international criticism by positioning itself as a key ally of the U.S. war on terrorism, deploying troops in Somalia against al Qaeda affiliate al-Shabaab. But by 2017 there were huge nationwide demonstrations against the regime.

When the 39-year-old Abiy Ahmed, a member of Ethiopia’s majority Oromo ethnic group, came to power a year later, he quickly moved to sideline the TPLF, with broad public support. Senior Tigrayan officials and businessmen were dismissed or detained in moves Mr. Ahmed said were a crackdown on corruption, but which many Tigrayans viewed as an attempt to silence and disempower them.

The conflict between better-equipped Ethiopian forces and Tigray fighters escalated, and forced Tigray forces to retreat. They are now in hiding.

Civilians have been caught in the crossfire. Government rocket barrages, airstrikes and artillery fire have already forced some 43,000 to flee to Sudan. Several refugees have drowned while attempting to swim across the Tekeze River into Sudan. Hundreds of civilians have been massacred in the three-week conflict.

When advancing Ethiopian troops arrived in her village of Mai-Kadra in western Tigray, Michele Wennie grabbed her six children and fled to Sudan.

“We left everything behind to save our lives,” said the 42-year-old mother, now encamped with thousands of other Ethiopians at an overflowing makeshift settlement near the Tekeze. “Soldiers were killing everyone they suspected of being a member of the TPLF fighters.”

The TPLF, now reviled across much of Ethiopia, is still revered—and feared—in Tigray. After years manning the heavily militarized border with Eritrea, it commands a large force of experienced fighters, setting the stage for more fierce battles.

The lack of freedoms that fueled popular discontent against the TPLF has meant Mr. Ahmed’s offensive has broad public support outside of Tigray. Many also back the prime minister’s refusal to negotiate, despite calls from the European Union and African Union.

“The very idea of negotiating with the TPLF is laughable, like hyenas negotiating with antelopes about dinner,” said Alemayehu Mariam, an Ethiopian academic. “TPLF negotiation means playing a zero-sum game.”

Facing War, Virus And Locusts, Ethiopia’s Once-Golden Economy Loses Its Luster

Nation’s economy has expanded at an average of almost 10% in recent years, but growth has ground to a halt: ‘Fighting for our very existence’.

For the past decade Ethiopia has boasted of one of the world’s fastest-growing economies, welcoming billions of dollars in foreign direct investment from the U.S. and China and lifting more than 20 million people out of poverty.

Now, a monthlong civil war, coronavirus lockdowns and historic locust infestations have left the once-golden economy stumbling, as it grapples with one of Africa’s most perilous debt loads, soaring inflation and the risk of a protracted insurgency.

Fighting between government forces and the rebel Tigray People’s Liberation Front has paralyzed much of northern Ethiopia, shaking a nation of 110 million people long seen as a symbol of stability in a volatile region.

Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has claimed victory after taking the rebel stronghold of Mekelle, but TPLF fighters have retreated into remote mountainous regions and vow to continue fighting.

Roads, bridges, a power plant and a sugar mill have been destroyed. The Ethiopian currency has sunk 20% against the dollar this year, suppressing purchasing power across a nation where millions of people are already dependent on food aid.

Foreign companies have been caught in the crossfire. Production at three textile factories in Tigray that supply Swedish fashion chain H&M has been halted. China has evacuated 500 of its nationals who were working in Tigray.

“What is clear is that this conflict will leave lasting damage on Ethiopia’s economy,” said Alex de Waal, executive director of the Massachusetts-based World Peace Foundation. “Ethiopia is in turmoil. The indication from the government that the war is over is not correct.”

The country’s state-led model of development helped expand the economy from $10 billion in 2004 to nearly $100 billion last year.

For most of that period, the TPLF were the country’s dominant political force, until Mr. Ahmed came to power in 2018 on a promise to liberalize politics and the state-controlled economy. Tensions between Mr. Ahmed’s government and the TPLF exploded into armed conflict early last month.

The conflict is the latest in a series of economic shocks to Ethiopia, each compounding one another.

The agriculture sector, which accounts for nearly half of the Ethiopian economy, has recorded its worst harvest in decades after locusts destroyed some 200,000 hectares of farmland, leaving more than eight million people in need of food assistance. The U.S.-funded Famine Early Warning Systems Network said recently that the conflict could complicate efforts to avert another infestation.

The fighting has closed two of the busiest border crossings between Ethiopia and Sudan, hobbling the trade of commodities from grains to cooking oil. Across swaths of Tigray, towns have emptied of people and farmers have abandoned vast tracts of land.

Economic growth is expected to slump to 1.9% in 2020 from 10% last year, the worst performance in 20 years. The government expects as many as 2.5 million jobs could be lost in the fast-growing textiles industry after travel restrictions and declining foreign demand combined to worsen an unemployment rate that is more than 40%.

Economists are split over whether a quick recovery could yet save many of those jobs. The U.K. and Germany set up a $6.5 million fund last month to try to save Ethiopian jobs.

Companies that had turned to Ethiopia’s cheap manufacturing in the wake of rising labor costs in Asia are cutting jobs. Some 7,000 jobs have already been lost at Hawassa Industrial Park, a sprawling Chinese-built complex located in central Ethiopia that makes a variety of goods, including textiles.

“Some companies have recorded up to a 90% decline in orders,” said Belay Hailemichael, chief executive of the park.

Tourism and business travel, another fast-growing sector in a country that has invested billions to become a regional transport hub, have been hit especially hard. Daniel Berhanu, manager of the Addis Ababa Hotel Owners Association, said that almost 80% of hotels in Addis Ababa had closed after the coronavirus restrictions, and the war is now choking off the recovery. “We are fighting for our very existence,” he said.

Travel restrictions have sent Ethiopian Airlines, a symbol of Ethiopia’s breakneck growth, reeling, forced to idle much of its fleet this year as flights were cut by one-third. Now, the conflict with the TPLF has compelled the carrier to suspend a number of domestic routes after rebels fired volleys of rockets.

“It’s a short-term disincentive to investment…I remain optimistic,” she said.

A key test will be investor appetite for Ethiopia’s liberalization of the telecom sector, another centerpiece of Mr. Ahmed’s overhaul plan. The government says it is on track to sell a minority stake in Ethio Telecom next year and that tendering for two new licenses for international companies to operate in the country will go ahead. But telecom industry executives fear the fighting could lead to delays and weaken investor interest.

Meanwhile, the conflict—including providing humanitarian assistance for one million people displaced by the fighting—and pandemic-related health costs will add to Ethiopia’s fast-rising debt pile, which has swelled from 40% in 2010 to 60% this year.

China, Ethiopia’s largest creditor, accounts for more than 40% of external debt, and it has funded a network of roads, power plants and railways, according to the China Africa Research Initiative at Johns Hopkins University.

The International Monetary Fund has warned that Ethiopia is one of two African nations at high risk of debt distress. The other, Zambia, is already in technical default.

Civilians caught in the fighting are already paying the price.

Awad Kareem was forced to abandon his gasoline station and flee when hostilities erupted.

“I heard that young men were being conscripted to take part in the fighting, and I was scared,” he said. Now in a makeshift refugee camp in Sudan, he’s unsure when he will get home, and if his business will still be there. “We left behind an empty town,” he said.

Ethiopia Says Forces Fired On UN Team Over Barrier Breaches

Ethiopia’s government said a United Nations team came under fire in the northern Tigray region after breaching at least two checkpoints.

The team was in the area on Sunday to conduct a security assessment for humanitarian agencies preparing to enter the conflict-torn region. They skipped the checkpoints and then drove in restricted areas, said Redwan Hussein, the state foreign minister and spokesperson for the government’s Emergency Task Force.

“They were about to break the third one and they were shot at and detained,” Redwan said. “Now they are free.”

Ethiopia’s government last week agreed to allow humanitarian agencies to access refugees and people internally displaced by a month of conflict in Tigray. Aid groups say they’re still struggling to access the area.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’ spokesman Stephane Dujarric said the UN is discussing the incident with the Ethiopian authorities. Four people were in the convoy that came under attack as they were conducting an assessment of roads before larger aid convoys head to the area, he said.

“We have seen the reports of a UN convoy being shot at in the Tigray province,” Dujarric said in New York. “These are alarming reports and we are engaging in the highest level with the federal government to express our concerns and avoid any such incidences in the future.”

What We Know About The War In The Tigray Region

Conflict in the north of Africa’s second-most-populous nation is spreading across borders, threatening stability in a strategic region

Long-simmering tensions between Ethiopia’s federal government, led by Nobel Peace Prize-winning Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, and defiant authorities in its northern Tigray region have erupted into a military confrontation. Hundreds of civilians have died, while tens of thousands have sought refuge in Sudan from airstrikes, as the conflict threatens to further destabilize the strategic Horn of Africa region.

What Is Happening In The Tigray Region?

Ethiopian ground troops and jet fighters have bombed targets across Tigray, battling the ruling party of the country’s most northern region, the Tigray People’s Liberation Front. On Nov. 28, government forces said they had taken control of the Tigrayan capital of Mekelle, home to 500,000 civilians and thousands of battle-hardened TPLF fighters.

Mr. Ahmed has said the war is over, but sporadic clashes have continued. Phone lines and the internet remain shut down across much of the province, making it difficult to verify information.

The government troops appear to have faced little resistance. TPLF fighters have likely melted into the civilian population and hide-outs elsewhere in the state, where regional analysts and Western diplomats say they are preparing to mount an armed insurgency. The TPLF has pledged to never surrender and to make Tigray “hell” for the Ethiopian government.

Tensions between Ethiopia’s federal government in Addis Ababa and the TPLF have been building since Mr. Ahmed became prime minister in 2018. The TPLF dominated Ethiopia’s ruling coalition for nearly three decades, with Tigrayans, who constitute around 6% of Ethiopia’s 110 million people, holding important positions in politics and business. TPLF leaders have accused Mr. Ahmed of sidelining them, while the federal government says the group is trying to divide Ethiopia.

How Did The War Start?

The war began after Mr. Ahmed said TPLF militias attacked an Ethiopian National Defense Force base near Mekelle on Nov. 4. The attack became the casus belli for Mr. Ahmed, who quickly abandoned his previous conciliatory approach toward the restive state to deploy ground troops and the air force. Both sides are heavily armed: The TPLF has control of artillery, long-range rockets and weapons caches hidden across the region. Mr. Ahmed’s government declared a six-month state of emergency in Tigray and shut down the internet and telecommunication networks.

What Has Been The Civilian Toll?

More than 1,000 people have been killed in the conflict, according to Ethiopian state television. Mr. Ahmed claimed on Nov. 2 that all were combatants and that not a single civilian was among them—a claim rejected by the TPLF. The information blackout in Tigray makes independent verification of those numbers difficult and humanitarian groups estimate a death toll of several thousand.

A news agency in Ethiopia’s Amhara region said on Nov. 25 that more than 10,000 Tigrayan troops had been “destroyed,” a claim that couldn’t be independently verified. More than 40,000 people from the region have fled across the border into Sudan, and aid agencies say they are preparing for 200,000 who will need food, water and shelter.

What Is The Humanitarian Situation?

More than 95,000 Ethiopians have been displaced by the conflict, with 50,000 of them fleeing across the border into Sudan, according to the United Nations. The U.N. has also warned of a looming humanitarian disaster, with millions at risk amid dwindling supplies of food, fuel and other necessities.

In Tigray, thousands have been hiding out in schools and temporary shelters, facing dire shortages of basics including food, water and medical supplies. Before the hostilities began, Tigray already had 100,000 internally displaced people following a war with Eritrea that ended a decade ago, and 600,000 people were dependent on food aid. Airstrikes have destroyed the state’s electricity grid and hit fuel supplies, threatening to worsen the humanitarian crisis. The U.N. projects that some 1.1 million additional people may need aid due to the crisis.

This week, Ethiopian forces shot at a U.N. team visiting refugees in Tigray, saying the group had refused to stop at a checkpoint in the restive region. The U.N. has previously said that the Ethiopian government had given it unimpeded humanitarian access to areas under federal government control, allowing it to provide medical and food supplies. Hospitals in Mekelle have struggled to care for the wounded, with medical supplies running out.

Why Is The U.N. Warning About War Crimes?

Amnesty International has said that hundreds of civilians were stabbed and hacked to death in the region, but the rights group said it hadn’t been able to independently confirm who was responsible. Local witnesses blamed the Tigrayan forces, while the TPLF blamed the Ethiopian government.

The U.N. said the attack would amount to a war crime if it was confirmed that a party to the conflict was responsible for the massacre. There is evidence of reprisal attacks: On Nov. 14, unknown gunmen killed 34 people in an ambush on a bus in western Ethiopia, according to the country’s human-rights commission, which said similar strikes are forcing people to flee their homes in other parts of Ethiopia.

Senior officials from the Trump administration and President-elect Joe Biden’s national security team have called for a halt to the fighting. “I’m deeply concerned about the risk of violence against civilians, including potential war crimes, in the fighting around Mekelle,” said Jake Sullivan, Mr. Biden’s pick for national security adviser.

What Is The Tigray People’s Liberation Front?

The Tigray People’s Liberation Front is the ruling party in the state of Tigray and was long the dominant force in Ethiopia’s ruling coalition. The TPLF led the coalition that defeated the government of Marxist dictator Mengistu Haile Mariam in 1991, following a protracted war. The Tigrayan military also took the lead in Ethiopia’s 1998-2000 border war against neighboring Eritrea.

The TPLF is a battle-hardened force, with an estimated 250,000 men under arms, and the bulk of Ethiopia’s military hardware under its control, including helicopter gunships, heavy field guns and tanks.

Last year, the TPLF refused to join Mr. Ahmed’s Prosperity Party, which is seeking to transform the federal bloc that has ruled Ethiopia since 1991 into a more centralized political force. In September, it defied the government by holding regional elections that had been delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

How Could This War Destabilize The Horn Of Africa Region?

The Eritrean government, led by the autocrat Isaias Afwerki, has long been hostile to Tigray’s regional government for its leading role in the 1998-2000 border conflict, despite signing a peace deal with Ethiopia last year. Since the war began, the TPLF have fired several volleys of rockets at Asmara, Eritrea’s mountaintop capital, warning that more could follow.

The Tigray state has accused Mr. Ahmed, the Ethiopian prime minister, of doing the bidding of Mr. Afwerki, who has held power for 27 years and controls a standing army estimated at 200,000 people by the Central Intelligence Agency. Analysts said a protracted conflict could pull Ethiopian troops from an African Union peacekeeping force that is fighting al Qaeda-linked militants in Somalia.

Why Was Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Awarded A Nobel Peace Prize?

Mr. Ahmed was awarded the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for his work to end a 20-year conflict with Eritrea and opening up one of Africa’s most entrenched one-party systems. A 44-year-old former army officer, he emerged as prime minister from an opaque power struggle in Ethiopia’s ruling party, but then upended politics in the East African nation with announcements that shattered political taboos: releasing thousands of political prisoners, legalizing opposition groups long classified as terrorists and ending the border conflict with Eritrea.

Eritrea Agrees To Pull Troops Out of Ethiopia’s Tigray Region

Eritrea agreed to start pulling its troops from Ethiopia’s Tigray region, making its first public admission to having troops in the neighboring country, in a letter to the United Nations Security Council.

The development follows comments Thursday by UN aid chief Mark Lowcock to the Security Council asserting that there was no proof Eritrean forces were withdrawing.

“Eritrea and Ethiopia have agreed – at the highest levels – to embark on the withdrawal of Eritrean forces and the simultaneous redeployment of Ethiopian contingents along the international boundary,” Sophia Tesfamariam, Eritrea’s UN Ambassador, said in the letter posted on Eritrea’s Information Ministry’s website.

Eritrea did not give a timeline for the withdrawal.

Last month, days after he announced Eritrea’s presence in the region, Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed announced Eritrea would withdraw its forces.

The U.S. and the European Union have on several occasions called on Eritrean troops to leave Tigray after reports of looting, sexual violence, assaults in refugee camps and other human-rights abuses.

Eritrea accused the Tigray People’s Liberation Front of starting the conflict with an “unprovoked attack” and firing missiles at Eritrea’s capital, Asmara, in the early stages of the war.

Abiy, who won the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to resolve a longstanding border conflict with Eritrea, ordered an incursion into Tigray after TPLF forces attacked a federal military camp in the region. The descent into violence followed months of tensions between federal and regional authorities.

Egypt And Ethiopia Clash Over Nile River Dam As Water Scarcity Looms World-Wide

Lives and livelihoods of millions of people are at stake, with the countries competing for dwindling resources.

A dispute over the Nile, the world’s longest river, is coming to a head. At stake are the lives and livelihoods of millions of people who depend on its water.

Egypt is objecting to efforts by Ethiopia to start operating a $4.8 billion dam on a major tributary of the Nile, a hydroelectric project that it hopes will power a social and economic transformation of the country, without a binding agreement that preserves Cairo’s rights to the waters.

The project is regarded by Egypt as a threat that could cut off nearly all of a key source of water for the country’s rapidly growing population. The country has exerted outsize control over access to the Nile since colonial times.

Water scarcity has become a geopolitical, economic and business concern around the globe, with populations competing with farming and industry.

The dispute over the Nile is one of the world’s major flashpoints over water rights. Disagreements have intensified in recent years over how much water each country along the Nile and its tributaries can tap, with the U.S. and other African countries seeking to help mediate disagreements.

The Ethiopian government in Addis Ababa formally notified Cairo July 5 that it has started the second phase of filling a giant reservoir behind the dam without a binding agreement with Egypt and Sudan over how much water each country will be allotted once the dam is filled. Ethiopian officials have said they hope to conduct hydroelectric trials this year.

Egypt’s foreign ministry has said the move to resume filling the reservoir, after starting last year, threatens “security and peace” in the region.

Egypt and Sudan have lobbied the United Nations, the U.S. and other countries to stop Ethiopia from filling the dam before the three countries reach a legally binding agreement over its operation. U.N. Security Council members on Thursday backed the African Union’s efforts to mediate the dispute.

President Biden has underscored the U.S.’s interest in achieving a diplomatic resolution that meets the legitimate needs of all three countries.

Egypt, with more than 100 million people, consumes about 84 billion cubic meters of water and needs about 114 billion cubic meters, according to the Egyptian ministry of irrigation, each year, with about 55.5 billion cubic meters coming from the Nile.

The country depends on the Nile for more than 90% of its freshwater needs. To cover the rest of its needs, Egypt relies on recycling wastewater and desalination of seawater as well as virtual water import.

Meanwhile, Ethiopia, a country with about 115 million people and until recently one of the world’s fastest-growing economies, regards the dam as a catalyst to accelerating the country’s transformation from an agrarian to an industrial economy. It hopes that the project—called the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, or GERD—will go a long way in closing its energy deficit, one of the largest in the world, with many Ethiopians lacking access to electricity.

Water flows into the Nile from tributaries in 10 countries. According to a variety of longstanding agreements, a certain amount of water must be released from each country, essentially guaranteeing a steady flow for Egypt.

The country has enjoyed broad rights over the use of the Nile’s waters since colonial times. A 1929 agreement that included the U.K., which ruled much of the Nile region at the time, gave Egypt the right to veto construction projects, even in upstream countries, that might affect how much water it would receive.

Since the 1950s, Egypt has impeded Ethiopian dam-building with threats of military intervention.

According to a 1959 agreement, Egypt receives 55.5 billion cubic meters of water from the Nile each year, while Sudan can draw 18.5 billion cubic meters. Ethiopia receives no water from the Nile, but the new dam would have a storage capacity of 74 billion cubic meters of water.
Egypt currently has a water shortage. The U.N. expects it will face water scarcity issues by 2025.

Countries in the upstream Nile region have demanded more water rights and in the 1990s banded together to oppose Egypt’s control over the basin and its veto over construction projects along the river.

In 1999, an intergovernmental partnership of Nile basin countries, including Egypt, was established. By 2010, Egypt’s influence in Africa had significantly diminished, and there were more efforts to challenge Egyptian control and assert sovereign rights to the Nile.

Friction over access to the Nile has long been a concern in relations between Egypt and Ethiopia, which date to ancient times and are among the oldest on the African continent. Centuries ago, an Ethiopian emperor threatened to cut off the water flowing to Egypt.

In 1979, Egypt sought to prevent nascent plans by Ethiopia to build a dam along the Nile, while Ethiopia opposed an Egyptian plan to divert the river to irrigate the Sinai Peninsula, a move that would have lowered water levels in the Nile basin.

Relations further deteriorated after an assassination attempt against President Hosni Mubarak in Addis Ababa in 1995, when gunmen ambushed his motorcade during a visit for a summit of African leaders.

Then, in 2011, when Egypt was in the throes of the Arab Spring protests, Ethiopia began its giant dam project. Ethiopia struck a deal with Webuild, an Italian company that built other dams and hydroelectric plants in Ethiopia.

In 2015, Ethiopia, Egypt and Sudan signed an agreement on cooperation, including a seven-year timeline for filling the dam. Talks on a full accord have been difficult, and disagreements remain on measures to address droughts and resolve disputes and on whether the deal will be legally binding.

Egypt and Sudan want a binding accord, while Ethiopia favors more flexibility. Sudan has sided with each party at various points of the standoff. The dam is near the border with Sudan, which lies between Egypt and Ethiopia and relies on the waters of the Nile for irrigation.

Construction is nearing completion, the U.N. said this month. Ethiopian media reported that about 80% of the dam has been finished. A manager for the project declined to comment.

When Ethiopia began filling the dam in July 2020, Egypt sought international mediation. It has lobbied the Arab League to pressure Ethiopia to stop filling until an agreement is reached. Egypt secured significant support—but not that of Sudan, which feared a pan-Arab conflict with Ethiopia.

In June 2020, Egypt unsuccessfully attempted to persuade the U.N. Security Council to intervene.

For Egypt, a major obstacle is that no studies have been agreed upon or completed on how the dam affects the Nile’s flow or on the material impact for the downstream countries, said Hafsa Halawa, an analyst and nonresident fellow at the Middle East Institute who has studied the dispute.

Talks have faltered since Ethiopia first started filling the dam last year. The resumption of filling and the prospect that the dam will start generating energy soon has added pressure to the talks.

Egyptian and Ethiopian leaders have rallied support domestically for their positions by invoking national sentiment.

For Ethiopia, the dam, which will be the largest in Africa upon completion, has become a point of pride. Some 8,500 laborers are working long hours to finish it.

Ethiopia’s government has heralded the dam for the political leverage it will provide in addition to the economic and social benefits.

The Egyptian government has repeatedly promised its people that the country’s water share will be unaffected.

During a visit to Egypt in June 2018 by Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi urged his guest to make a public pledge that his country wouldn’t harm the Egyptian people. “I swear to God, we will never harm you,” Mr. Ahmed said in Arabic after Mr. Sisi spoke in a joint press conference.

Egypt’s political leaders have suggested that the government in Cairo had the power to stop the project, if necessary by force. Mr. Sisi had previously ruled out the possibility of military action against Ethiopia, saying he preferred negotiations. But as talks with Ethiopia collapsed this year, Mr. Sisi said “all options were open.”

Meanwhile, Egypt has pushed to modernize the country’s irrigation systems, switching to the more efficient drip irrigation from old surface irrigation systems. Irrigation is the only option for large-scale agricultural production in Egypt. The Aswan High Dam reservoir helps the country to mitigate effects of drought.

Egypt has launched a public-awareness campaign aimed at encouraging the population to conserve water at home.

While the Nile is a key source of water for Egypt, other Nile basin countries including Ethiopia also receive water from rainfall, groundwater, lakes and rivers. Ethiopia has experienced several devastating droughts followed by food shortages and famines.

Ethiopia’s War In Tigray Sees Ethnic Minority Group Targeted Across The Country

Arbitrary detentions of ethnic Tigrayans have increased, rights groups say, since Ahmed government suffered a defeat in conflict with separatists.

Ethiopian authorities have launched reprisals against ethnic Tigrayans across the country, arresting hundreds and accusing members of the minority group of supporting rebels who have been locked in a bloody war with the government of Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.

Mr. Ahmed declared war on Tigray, a mountainous region that borders Sudan and Eritrea, in November, after his government said the Tigray People’s Liberation Front, or TPLF, had attacked an Ethiopian military base. The fighting followed months of rising tensions between the central government and the TPLF, which had dominated Ethiopia’s ruling party until Mr. Ahmed’s rise to power in 2018.

In recent weeks, the government has arbitrarily arrested hundreds of ethnic Tigrayans outside the dissident northern region, keeping some in military detention camps, rights groups and former detainees say.

The arrests of ethnic Tigrayans in Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa, and other parts of the country have accelerated since government troops suffered a stinging defeat against the TPLF in late June, according to Amnesty International, the Ethiopian Human Rights Commission and other international and local rights groups.

On Tuesday, Mr. Ahmed urged “all capable Ethiopians” to take up arms against the TPLF, a call that could bring an end to a cease-fire declared by the government for the Tigray conflict in late June and could presage fresh hostilities in the region and beyond.

The detentions are another sign of how the war in Tigray—where the U.S. has said the government and its allies are carrying out ethnic cleansing—is rippling across the rest of Ethiopia, Africa’s second-most populous nation after Nigeria and long a linchpin of stability in the volatile Horn of Africa region.

Since then, the United Nations, the U.S. and other Western countries have accused government troops, who are fighting alongside soldiers from Eritrea and militias from other parts of Ethiopia, of committing atrocities against civilians and destroying hospitals and other critical infrastructure.

While Western officials say all parties of the conflict have committed human-rights violations, they say Mr. Ahmed’s government is now preventing humanitarian aid to millions of people in the region who are now on the brink of famine. In a report released Tuesday, Amnesty said government-affiliated fighters were using rape and other sexual violence as a weapon of war in Tigray.

The government denies that it has deliberately attacked civilians or is carrying out ethnic cleansing. It has said it is investigating allegations of sexual violence. It has also accused TPLF fighters of committing atrocities against members of other ethnicities, a charge that the group denies.

Now, Tigrayans and rights groups say the government is pursuing members of the ethnic group, which makes up around 5% of Ethiopia’s population, in other parts of the country, too.

In interviews, Tigrayans said Ethiopian police had detained them, accused them of supporting the TPLF and threatened to take them to detention centers outside the capital. There, former detainees and researchers at Amnesty International say, hundreds of Tigrayans are being kept without due process, with little food and water and in unsafe sanitary conditions.

Haile Fekadu, a construction worker in Addis Ababa, said police entered a popular neighborhood restaurant on July 6, and, after checking diners’ identity cards, detained him and several other customers at a police station for three days.

Mr. Fekadu said he was put in a cell crowded with more than a dozen other men and accused by officers of supporting the TPLF, a charge he denies.

“At the police station, everyone was speaking Tigrinya,” said Mr. Fekadu said, referring to the Tigrayan language. The 26-year-old said he was released after seeking help from a relative who is a police officer. Mr. Fekadu has since fled Ethiopia to neighboring Sudan. “I am lucky to be out.

Many others are still in jail,” he said.

Mr. Ahmed’s spokeswoman, Billene Seyoum Woldeyes, said authorities are pursuing suspected TPLF operatives of various ethnicities as Ethiopia remains under high security alert due to the war. “To assume that crackdowns against the TPLF and their operatives [are] against the people of Tigray is to disregard the context and understanding of the country,” Ms. Woldeyes said in an emailed statement. “The government does not equate TPLF with the People of Tigray.”

Rights groups and Western diplomats say attacks against civilians in Tigray and other parts of Ethiopia have continued since the Ethiopian government declared a unilateral cease-fire on June 29, when TPLF fighters won back the Tigrayan capital, Mekelle. Last week, Sudanese officials reported dozens of bodies floating across their border on a river from Tigray. Some of the corpses had gunshot wounds, while others had their hands bound, the officials said.

Mr. Ahmed’s office said reports of the bodies were “fake news,” spread by the TPLF to discredit his government.

In an address to the nation on July 18, Mr. Ahmed referred to the TPLF as a “cancer” and “invasive weed” that “will be uprooted, never to grow again.” A few days earlier, Dagnachew Assefa, a security adviser to the prime minister, said on local television that authorities should closely monitor Tigrayans in Addis Ababa and drew comparisons to the Ethiopian-Eritrean war, when Eritreans were registered and deported from the capital.

The sharpening of official rhetoric against Tigrayans and the TPLF has prompted warnings from foreign officials, including the U.N.’s special adviser on the prevention of genocide, that such language could fuel ethnic tensions or even violence.

Last week, Samantha Power, head of the U.S. Agency for International Development and former U.S. ambassador to the U.N., said that “dehumanizing rhetoric…only hardens tensions and can, and historically, certainly, often accompanies ethnically motivated atrocities.”

Tigrayans in Addis Ababa, who like all Ethiopians have their ethnicity marked in their identity cards, say they are afraid of speaking Tigrinya in public in the wake of the arrests. In interviews, some said they are considering moving to Tigray.

Others, including political activists, say they have been prevented from boarding flights to leave Ethiopia at Addis Ababa’s Bole International Airport.

Hiwote, an Addis Ababa truck driver who asked to be identified only by his first name, said he was on his way home with his brother following a delivery in early July when officers flagged them down at a checkpoint. After inspecting their identity cards, he said, officers detained the two men at a police station. He and his brother were released without charges after paying officers about $80 in bail and bribes.

“Police are combing every corner of Addis Ababa looking for Tigrayan people,” said Hiwote. Since his arrest, the 40-year-old father of three said, he hasn’t left his home to work or shop for groceries. “I know I can’t be in hiding forever, but I don’t want to be arrested again,” he said.

Another former detainee said he was arrested at his garment store in Addis Ababa in early July, along with two of his workers. After being held overnight in the capital, he said, they were taken to a military base in Awash Sebat in the eastern state of Afar.

Confined behind a chain-link fence and razor wire, more than 150 inmates, all ethnic Tigrayans, slept in the open and shared a single pit latrine while guards patrolled with AK-47s, he said. Inmates had just one meal a day and little access to drinking water, the former detainee said.

He said he was freed after his wife, a member of the Amhara ethnic group, used connections in the military to secure his release. “The temperatures become so hot especially during the day,” he said. “It’s my worst experience.”

Ethiopia’s Civil War Is A Disaster That’s Only Getting Worse

The only way to avoid a humanitarian calamity is for the West to lean harder on Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.

As the world is transfixed by the tragedy playing out in Afghanistan, another humanitarian catastrophe is getting little scrutiny.

In Ethiopia, a conflict with roots in a dispute between the central government of Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and authorities of the northern Tigray region has spilled into neighboring provinces and metastasized into a full-blown civil war — one fueled as much by ethnic enmities as by political grievances. It’s time for the West to pay attention and get tougher on the government in Addis Ababa.

International rights groups are seeing an all-too-familiar pattern repeat itself in Ethiopia: There’s the weaponization of rape and hunger, the use of child soldiers, reports of ethnic cleansing and warnings of genocide. The death toll from the fighting is thought to be in the tens of thousands, and millions have been displaced.

Worse is to come: Hundreds of thousands of Ethiopians face famine, according to United Nations agencies. The fighting is preventing food aid from reaching people in the greatest need. Abiy, a Nobel Peace laureate, has ignored appeals from the international community to halt the fighting. With the Tigray People’s Liberation Front having inflicted a series of defeats on government forces, the prime minister has called on civilians to join the army and militias, stoking fears of a wider conflagration.

Inevitably, the crisis has resurrected memories of Ethiopia’s previous experience with famine. In the 1980s, an estimated 1 million people died from starvation and malnutrition. Comparisons are also being drawn to Africa’s other cataclysmic ethnic conflicts, including the Rwandan genocide.

Ethiopia is Africa’s second-most populous nation and was, until the civil war broke out last fall, held up as a beacon for the rest of the continent: Its recent economic success was cited by investors and aid donors alike as an example for other developing countries.

That success is now imperiled as the conflict exacts a heavy toll on the economy. The risk premium on Ethiopia’s dollar debt has almost doubled this year. The ardor of investors has cooled with the government’s pleas for a debt restructuring. As Bloomberg News has pointed out, the premium demanded to hold Ethiopia’s 2024 Eurobonds instead of U.S. Treasuries has climbed to 987 basis points, the highest in Africa after Zambia, which is in default. The average spread for African dollar bonds is 541 basis points.

And yet neither economic nor humanitarian considerations carry much weight with Abiy. The prime minister seems to have taken an election triumph in June — his party won a large majority in parliament — as an endorsement of his no-compromise posture in the war against the Tigrayans.

But the conflict has grown more complicated since then. Insurgents from the Oromo, Ethiopia’s largest ethnic group, have formed an alliance with the Tigrayans against the government.

Who can stop Ethiopia from the coming catastrophe? The African Union is too beholden to the government, which provides its headquarters in Addis Ababa, to have much sway over Abiy, and it doesn’t inspire trust among the rebels. The UN’s pleas for a ceasefire have gone unheeded by both sides.

The Biden administration, on the other hand, has some leverage. Ethiopia is sub-Saharan Africa’s largest recipient of American foreign aid, amounting to about $1 billion last year. The European Union is another significant donor and trading partner. Some U.S. and EU assistance has been suspended or postponed, but this has not had any restraining effect on Abiy, who refused even to meet with USAID chief Samantha Power when she visited Addis Ababa last month.

Just in case Joe Biden missed this demonstration of defiance, Abiy also snubbed the U.S. special envoy to the Horn of Africa, Jeffrey Feltman, who flew to the Ethiopian capital the following week.

With shuttle-diplomacy and mild financial restrictions having failed, Western governments will need to lean more heavily on the prime minister to pause the fighting and allow humanitarian supplies into the war zone. The Biden administration can lead the way by suspending all nonessential aid to Addis Ababa, as well as blocking assistance from the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. Washington should also follow through on its threat to cancel duty-free access for Ethiopian exports to the U.S. market under the African Growth and Opportunity Act.

Having already announced some restrictions on visas for Ethiopian government and military officials involved in “perpetrating the conflict,” U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken should now impose harsher sanctions, including freezing any assets these officials hold in the U.S., and pressing the Europeans to do likewise.

Anticipating a ratcheting up of Western pressure, Abiy is seeking support elsewhere: He got some from Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on a visit to Ankara earlier this month. But the combined clout of the U.S. and Europe remains substantial, and it should now be deployed to save millions of Ethiopians from calamity.

War-Wracked Ethiopia Tightens Money Supply As Inflation Tops 30%

Ethiopia’s central bank expects new measures aimed at curbing illegal foreign-exchange trading and reducing local-currency supply to gradually bring down an inflation rate that’s at a near decade high, according to Vice Governor Fikadu Digafe.

The East African nation on Sept. 1 doubled the statutory reserve requirement for commercial lenders to 10% and increased the amount of foreign currency they must remit to the central bank, in an effort to rein in inflation that quickened to 30.4% in August. That’s the highest since December 2012.

It has also issued a “due diligence directive” that seeks to indirectly curb inflation by preventing individuals from opening multiple bank accounts and conducting illegal transactions, Fikadu said by phone from Addis Ababa, the capital.

“The main cause of inflation is supply-side shortage,” said Fikadu, who is vice governor in charge of monetary policy and chief economist at the National Bank of Ethiopia. But “you cannot undermine the supply of money,” which also pushes up prices, he said.

Thousands Displaced

Inflation has been fueled by a conflict between federal forces and troops from the northern Tigray region that erupted in November and has spread into the neighboring Afar and Amhara regions. Tens of thousands of farmers have fled their land and factories and roads have been closed.

“The area which is affected by conflict is not producing. You also have some people displaced who have to be supported and that puts pressure on the market as you have to buy things” to help them, Fikadu said. “So directly or indirectly it has an impact.”

Annual food inflation accelerated to 37.6% in August from 32% the previous month as the cost of items from bread to rice increased rapidly. Taxes on wheat, sugar, oil and rice have been waived in a further bid to ease price-growth, State Minister for Finance Eyob Tekalign said Friday.

Still the impact of the bank’s monetary policy decisions should not be underestimated, Fikadu said.

I hope inflation “will come down to some extent because the impact of monetary policy should not be undermined,” he said. “Probably it will be challenging, but we hope it will be down slightly and gradually come down.”

China Opposes U.S. Threat To Impose Sanctions On Ethiopia

China criticized a U.S. threat to impose sanctions on Ethiopia over a conflict in the Horn of Africa nation, saying the government has the ability to resolve its own issues without foreign interference.

“We oppose the wanton exertion of pressure through sanctions or the threat of imposing sanctions to interfere in other countries’ internal affairs,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said at a briefing Wednesday. “The U.S. should prudently handle relevant issues and play a constructive role in restoring peace and stability in the country.”

Biden last week authorized the Department of Treasury and the State Department to pursue individuals and entities in Ethiopia and Eritrea involved in the conflict that erupted in Ethiopia’s northern Tigray region in November. The U.S. threat of sanctions aims to bring warring parties to the negotiating table.

China is Ethiopia’s biggest bilateral lender, with $6.5 billion in loans, or 23% of the total public debt burden of $27.8 billion, according to World Bank data. China is co-chairing a creditor committee that seeks to reorganize Ethiopia’s external debt.

The conflict in Ethiopia erupted when Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed ordered his military to respond to an attack by Tigrayan state forces on a federal military base. Troops from neighboring Eritrea supported Abiy’s army in a conflict that has left more than 5 million people in need of humanitarian assistance. No fuel or medicine has been delivered to Tigray since Aug. 16.

Abiy is expected to form a new government in October, after a landslide win by his political party in elections earlier this year. Zhao said China wants Ethiopia to “realize national reconciliation and restore peace and stability at an early date.”
