Ethiopia – Ceasefire in Tigray (June 28) - Press briefing by the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs Deputy Spokesperson (excerpt)
Paris, 29 June 2021
Yesterday’s announcement of a ceasefire in Tigray is a major development, which should be encouraged and consolidated.
We call on all parties to ensure the effective implementation of the ceasefire and reiterate our call for the Eritrean forces to immediately leave Ethiopian territory.
The priority now is to permanently end the violence, ensure the protection of the civilian populations, allow access to humanitarian assistance, and initiate a political dialogue. (...)./.
