AEPAC’s Statement on U.S. Special Envoy for the Horn of Africa Hammer’s Work in Ethiopia

“The recognition of the humanitarian situation in Afar and Amhara as well as Tigray, the explicit support for the African Union peace process, and the commitment to the unity and territorial integrity of Ethiopia, all signal support for Ethiopia and its people.”

“However, it still does not go far enough. Lasting peace will only be secured if the TPLF is forced to lay down their arms. The American Ethiopian community also wants the United States to match its words with action; it’s time to lift sanctions and reinstate Ethiopia within AGOA.”
