EU Deplores Situation in Northern Ethiopia

 The European Union issued a press release on 17 October 2022 calling for a halt to the offensive in northern Ethiopia.

The EU called "for an immediate halt to the joint offensives launched by Ethiopian National Defence Forces in collaboration with Eritrean Defence Forces, and a full withdrawal of Eritrean troops from the sovereign territory of Ethiopia.  . . .  The EU equally exhorts the Tigray Forces to refrain from any further military operations, and to cease hostilities in neighboring Amhara and Afar territories."
