Ambassador Deriba Kuma discusses current issues with #Swedish Member of #EU Parliament

(18-02-2021 published)
H.E. Ambassador Deriba Kuma discussed current national and regional issues with Swedish Member of European Union Parliament, Honourable David Lega.
The issue of humanitarian assistance in the Tigray region was discussed in detail in which Ambassador Deriba underscored that the Government of Ethiopia with support from its partners has so far provided food and non-food items to more than two million beneficiaries.
The Ambassador further emphasized that a task force constituted of the Attorney General and Federal Police is investigating the purported violations and that the independent Human Rights Commission has investigated atrocities committed in #Maikadra and officially released its findings.
In light of this, the Ambassador stressed that the unchanging statements from the EU since the beginning of the law enforcement operation have failed to recognize the relentless efforts made by the Government to address the challenges related to the operation.
Ambassador Deriba accordingly called upon the EU to engage with Ethiopia constructively and keep on its effort of supporting Ethiopia in its endeavor to achieve sustainable peace and development.
Honorable David Lega on his part emphasized the need of expanding humanitarian access, opening all means of communication, and investigating alleged violations including sexual violence.
The MEP also underlined the importance of continuous engagement between the EU and Ethiopia on urgent matters of humanitarian access and regional peace in the Horn of Africa.
Both Ambassador Deriba and Honorable Lega promised to continue the dialogue on issues of mutual interest to Ethiopia and the European Union.
