40 Ambassadors visited Mekelle, Tigray region of Ethiopia amid claims of Humanitarian Disaster

The Ethiopian government has been trying to respond, albeit lately, to allegations of humanitarian disaster and rights violations  in the Tigray region of Ethiopia. 

One of the actions that the government took , locally, in that regard was to engage Ambassadors based in the capital Addis Ababa about the state of response to the humanitarian crisis in the ensuing months after the battle against TPLF, government calls it law enforcement operation, was completed.  

On Wednesday, the government took additional measures to ensure that diplomats based in Addis Ababa have first-hand information about the situation.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that  Ambassador Redwan Hussien, state minister within the Ministry, and 40 resident Ambassadors in the capital visited Mekelle City, capital of Tigray regional state and one of the key commercial cities in the region.  Based on pictures released by the Ministry, Geeta Pasi, US Ambassador to Ethiopia, whose government changed position after Joe Biden took office , was among the ambassadors who visited the region.  

Dr. Mulu Nega, head of the provisional administration who greeted the ambassadors upon arrival at the airport, briefed them about the situation in the region. 

Core to his briefing was the state of rehabilitation and rebuilding effort, which is claimed to be the top priority for prime minister Abiy Ahmed’s administration which aims to restore normalcy across the region, in the post conflict situation. 

“Challenges and results achieved in rebuilding damaged infrastructures, reopening public service institutions, rehabilitating IDPs, and delivering humanitarian supports were discussed in detail,” said the update from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ethiopia. 

Ethiopian government claims that so far more than 4.1 million people have received emergency humanitarian assistance, of which 70 percent of it was provided by the government itself. 

In a related development, Dr. Mulu Nega remarked about media campaigns against Ethiopia – a  relentless campaign from groups that are believed to be remnants of TPLF who exploited major media outlets in the west through, as some say, extravagant spending in foreign currency. 

State media, Ethiopian News Agency,  cited Dr. Mulu Nega was saying that some coverage by international media regarding the situation in Tigray does not capture the reality. 

“It is wrong that some international media are using groups organized by TPLF junta to publish an inaccurate report about Tigray,” he said. 

And the reports seem to be informing policy makers including in major multilateral institutions. Last week, the government of Ireland, non-permanent member of the UN security council, initiated a discussion about the “Humanitarian” condition in the Tigray region, but there was no agreement to include statement about it in the council’s statement owing to opposition from two permanent members and one non-permanent member of the council. 

On Wednesday, Ethiopians and Eritreans in the United States staged protest rally in Washington against disinformation campaign on Ethiopia.

  1. As much as I support prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, this is where I defer with his administration, these so cold Ambassadors, have no business being in the Tigray region of Ethiopia, or else where in our country, unless otherwise they have pertinent diplomatic duties, but not including meddling in the internal affairs ETHIOPIA, or are they overtly or covertly spying for the mafia gangsters of the British and the Americans. Prime minister Abiy Ahmed made a huge mistake by agreeing to negotiate with the pharaohs, almost and indirectly admitting there is something wrong with building the GRAND ETHIOPIAN RENAISSANCE DAM, where there was absolutely nothing to negotiate about, prime minister Abiy Ahmed should have simply said and told the Pharaohs, there is nothing to negotiate about here, we are building the dam in our land and using our own River Nile, if you don’t like it go fly a kite, period end of the story. The pharaohs don’t understand negotiations, peace and or truthfulness, it isn’t in their vocabularies, the pharaohs understand power, they are world class cowardly societies, their life is built in the platforms of lies, deceptions, cheating, stealing and dwelling in witchcrafts, Abiy Ahmed should say no to any sort of negotiations with the delusional Pharaohs, and any suggestions from their cronies, such as the British, US and the European Union.

    Humble Commentary, 11 Mar 2021
    Very interesting paragraph. It is surprising [and even sad] that Ethiopia is obliged to invite “40 Ambassadors to visit Mekelle, Tigray region” as witnesses that it is doing a marvellous job helping one of its provinces in a time of internal crisis. In short, it need a pat on the back!!!

    One can’t help thinking if one of the Western well known countries would have done the same thing in the process of solving their own problems. NO! NO! NO! that would not happen in a million years. It is the underdeveloped countries that constantly cajoles the powerful Western Governments to be on their side, in their own local squabbling!!!

    It is a glaring reflection that UNDERDEVELOPED COUNTRIES around the Globe are permanent subservients to the POWERFUL WESTERN COUNTRIES, who maneuver the WORLD in the direction of their own preferences, thus manuvering the polotical arenna of the underdeveloped, for ever and ever. It should not, therefore, be a shock to witness that the word INDEPENDENCE as defined in Western Dictionary is — as the cliche goes — for the ‘birds’.

    Dear Humble Friends, Keep on smiling — knowing the reality of the WORLD. THE END
