💭 አምባሳደር ሊንዳ ቶማስ-ግሪንፊልድ በጸጥታው ምክር ቤት፤ “የኤርትራ እና የአማራ ኃይሎች ትግራይን ባፋጣኝ ለቅቀው መውጣት አለባቸው።

አዎ! ለራሳቸው፣ ለሕዝባቸውና ለኢትዮጵያ ሲሉ ትንሽ የማሰቢያ አንጎል ከቀራቸው፡ በኢሳያስ መድፍ እና በአረብ ድሮን እርዳታ ከወረሯቸው ከወልቃይት፣ ሁመራ፣ ማይካድራ፣ ራያ ወዘተ ባፋጣኝ ለቅቀው በመውጣት ጎንደርን ከሱዳንና ግብጽ መከላከል አለባቸው። ለሰሩት ከባድ፤ እጅግ በጣም ከባድ ወንጀል በምድርም በሰማይም ይጠየቁበታል።

Remarks by Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield at the UN Security Council Virtual Stakeout Following Security Council Discussions on Ethiopia

The United States is alarmed by the humanitarian and human rights situation in Ethiopia. What’s happening in Ethiopia has had, and will continue to have, devastating consequences for thousands of innocent people, and it poses a direct threat to regional peace and security. We need to address it immediately.

The onus to prevent further atrocities and human suffering falls squarely on the Ethiopian government’s shoulders. We urge the Ethiopian government to support an immediate end to the fighting in Tigray. And to that end, the prompt withdrawal of Eritrean forces and Amhara regional forces from Tigray are essential steps. And we urge the broader region to work fast and together toward a peaceful solution.

For our part, the United States is committed to working bilaterally and multilaterally to help secure an end to the violence.

We are committed to holding perpetrators of abuses and violations on all sides to account. And we are committed to addressing and assisting with the humanitarian and the human rights crisis.

To that end, this week we have deployed a Disaster Assistance Response Team to Ethiopia to lead the scale-up of U.S. government humanitarian assistance.

Our goal is to help people affected by the conflict in the Tigray region, and our hope is that others will join us in this urgent, necessary, life-saving effort.
