China rejects new US sanction regime over Ethiopia


China on Wednesday said that it opposes the sanction regime that president Joe Biden’s administration introduced last week targeting Ethiopian and Eritrean officials. 

China expressed its conviction that the parties involved in the conflict do have the capability to resolve it and restore peace to the country. 

Lijian Zhao, Spokesman of the Chinese Foreign Ministry, said in a Twitter message that “China opposes new US sanctions regime on Ethiopia.”

He tweeted : 

“China opposes new US sanctions regime on Ethiopia. We hope the US will be prudent & play a constructive role. We believe the parties concerned in Ethiopia have the wisdom & capability to properly resolve differences, realize national reconciliation and restore peace & stability.” 

The remarks from the government of China is received well by Ethiopians in social media platforms.  

An anti-American sentiment is rising in Ethiopia after the Biden administration indulged in what many Ethiopians understood to be a tacit support for the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) insurgency in the northern part of the country, including part of Amhara and part of Afar region.

  1. Subject: “China rejects new US sanction regime over Ethiopia”. September 23, 2021

    Humble Commentary, 24 September 2021
    It is not unusual. It is called ‘international politics’.
    Tomorrow will be different. Needless to say, all the so called power house States are only interested for their own benefit.
    It is, therefore, very naive to say but they have absolutely no shame.
    They are human vaultures
    Ethiopia, continue with your admirable legendary polite political system with dignity.
    Good Luck.

    With the above realities, what Black African States should do is to concentrate on what is beneficial to themselves regardless of what the powerful nations alternatively say and do. Full STOP.

  2. China is an ancient land, with greater understanding of humanity and communications, diplomacy with their fellow humanity, where as colonial power white supremacist Europeans and Americans always wants to grab, conquer, money and power from those whom they deem to believe are less than them, by virtues of violence, deceptions, invasions, wars and instigating civil and ethnic wars, particularly blacks and the continent of BLACK AFRICAN nations, to a point have succeeded in doing, that being said, will never be able to do it again.
