#IGAD appreciates #Ethiopia’s peace and humanitarian efforts
The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) appreciated and vowed to support the positive steps taken by the government of Ethiopia toward humanitarian access, the peaceful resolution of the conflict in northern Ethiopia, and the National All-Inclusive Dialogue. The regional block said that in a communiqué issued following the 39th Extraordinary Assembly of the #IGAD Heads of State and Government held today (July 05) in Nairobi, Kenya.
IGAD also expressed support to the Sudanese-led and owned peace talks and the facilitation role of the trilateral AU-IGAD-UN mechanism as well as South Sudan’s revitalized peace agreement with a call to solve outstanding issues. The Prime Minister of Ethiopia H.E. Abiy Ahmed attended the Assembly that was chaired by the Chairman of the Transitional Sovereignty Council of Sudan, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan. The Presidents of Kenya and Djibouti, Deputy Prime Minister of Somalia, Vice President Dr. James Wani Igga of South Sudan, Defense Minister of Uganda, #IGAD Executive Secretary, H.E. Dr. Workneh Gebeyehu, and representatives of regional and international organizations attended the Assembly.
The Assembly stressed that the 40-years-high drought coupled with the shortage of food supplies due to the conflict in Ukraine, Covid-19, and heavy flooding are undermining humanitarian and health situations in the region and called on international partners for support.
