 Eritrean Troops Begin Withdrawal From Ethiopia’s Tigray Region

Eritrean forces have started withdrawing from Ethiopia’s Tigray region in the north after fighting on the Government’s side in a war against the region’s fugitive leaders from the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF).

The United States, Germany, France and other G7 countries called for a swift, unconditional and verifiable withdrawal of the Eritrean Soldiers, followed by a political process that is acceptable to all Ethiopians.

That statement also urged the establishment of a clear, inclusive political process that is acceptable to all Ethiopians, including those in Tigray, and which leads to credible elections and a wider national reconciliation process.

Ethiopia’s Foreign Ministry announced the withdrawal but in a rejoinder said the G7 Foreign Ministers’ statement had not acknowledged key steps being taken to address the needs of the region.
