Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister H.E. Demeke Mekonnen met UNHCR Assistant High Commissioner for Refugees (Operations) H.E. Rauf Mazou today (October 22) at his office.
The Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister briefed Mr. Rauf Mazou on the current status of refugees in Ethiopia, including the dramatic increments of internally displaced people due to the actions of the TPLF.
Mr. Demeke recalled the atrocities that Eritrean refugees in Tigray had faced in the hands of the TPLF and the status of the newly built refugee camps for Eritrean refugees in the Amhara region.
He expressed concerns over the activities of some of the Ethiopian refugees in Sudanese camps who exploited their refugee status to escape responsibility for the crimes that they committed in Ethiopia and to resume their assaults on the country.
The High Commissioner noted Mr. Demeke’s concern and pledged to cooperate with the government to address the issues and further share responsibilities in supporting refugees in Ethiopia.
