UN chief sees progress toward peace in Ethiopia



Ethiopia’s government and Tigray forces are making progress in efforts to end a 14-month conflict, United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres said.
“I am delighted that after over a year of armed conflict which has affected millions of people across Ethiopia and the rest of the region, there is now a demonstrable effort to make peace,” Guterres said.
His comments came after a telephone call with the African Union’s High Representative to the Horn of Africa Olusegun Obasanjo visited Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa and Tigray’s Mekelle. Fighting has engulfed Ethiopia since PM Abiy Ahmed ordered an incursion into Tigray.
