EU working to resolve crisis in Ethiopia – Foreign Minister Haavisto conveys common EU messages in Tigray
In early April, Minister for Foreign Affairs @Pekka Haavisto visited Addis Ababa, Ethiopia 🇪🇹, as an Envoy of High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell.
This was Minister Haavisto's second mission to Ethiopia.
During the visit, discussions were held on the situation in Ethiopia, with a focus on the crisis in the Tigray region and the regional repercussions of the conflict. The war started in November 2020, and there is an enormous need for assistance.
“Every extra day of this war means more loss of life, more destroyed homes, more refugees, more violence against girls and women, more suffering for civilians,” Haavisto says.
The work done by Minister Haavisto is an important part of the EU’s efforts to end violence and hostilities in the Tigray region 🇪🇺.
