The United States Concerned By Clashes in Oromia, Ethiopia

The United States is deeply concerned by the recent clashes in the Oromia region of Ethiopia that reportedly have resulted in the deaths of numerous protestors. We greatly regret the deaths that have occurred and express our condolences to the families of those who have lost their lives.
We urge the government of Ethiopia to permit peaceful protest and commit to a constructive dialogue to address legitimate grievances. We also urge those protesting to refrain from violence and to be open to dialogue. The government of Ethiopia has stated publicly that the disputed development plans will not be implemented without further public consultation. We support the government of Ethiopia’s stated commitment to those consultations and urge it to convene stakeholders to engage in dialogue as soon as possible.

  1. "Why does the US identify itself as an ally of dictators considering the fact that ist government was originally founded on democratic principles? - Interest blinds and the US is blinded because of national interest

  2. Didn't the clueless President praise the rulers of ETHIOPIA. He even praised the thugs for winning the national election by 100%.😃

  3. Ethiopia new generation need freedom of rights
