African Union expressed its concern about the conflict in Amahara, Ethiopia

In a statement issued by the African Union, it announced its concern about the situation in the Amhara region of Ethiopia.

The union added in its profile that the chairman of the African Union, Musa Faki Mahamat, is monitoring the damage.

The chairman added that they are closely monitoring the military conflict in the Amhara region.

The African Union has also mentioned in the statement that it will support Ethiopia’s constitutional system, sovereignty and unity.

The chairman urged all parties involved in the conflict to protect the innocent from harm and stop it and warned them to come to a discussion and solve their problems.

Musa Faki added that the African Union will support the discussions to bring peace and stability to Ethiopia.

Since last April, the federal government has been facing harsh opposition from Amharas after the disbandment of regional special forces. 

Following this, the state government stated that the security situation was beyond its control and asked the federal government to intervene.

A six-month state of emergency has been declared in the Amhara region, and flights to Bahardar, Gondar, Lalibela and Kombolcha were cancelled last week.

Heavy fighting is still going on between the national defence and Fano militants in different places of the region, and the flights that were interrupted have resumed.

The House of People’s Representatives approved a six-month state of emergency in the Amhara region at its emergency meeting last Monday.
