The Declaration of an Indefinite Humanitarian Truce is a Demonstration of Government’s Commitment for Peace
In respect of the existing humanitarian concern in the Tigray Region, the government had boldly vowed that it would not sit idle when the people of Tigray die hungry. As per that commitment, it declared an indefinite humanitarian truce a couple of weeks ago. This is hoped to clear the misplaced accusations over deliberate humanitarian blockade in Tigray. If the TPLF lives up to its words and practically reciprocates, this will help alleviate the suffering. However, we should take their words with a pinch of salt for the TPLF oftentimes give statements like this for political expediency. That is why we want to request the international community to urge them to deescalate practically and play a constructive role in this process.
If the TPLF is committed to its words and facilitates humanitarian support to those in need, this will help the people get over whatever sentiment the restricted humanitarian supply created.
It is to be recalled that due to TPLF’s continued incursion into the Amhara and Afar Regions, effective humanitarian delivery through the existing land corridor has been impossible for a long time. Therefore, with improved humanitarian delivery to Tigray, we could create understanding that there has never been an intention on the part of the Federal government to starve the Region as repeatedly claimed by the TPLF agents.
Unhindered aid, which is still incumbent upon the TPLF, will also allow majority of the people of the region to see the truth and to defy naysayers and engage with their fellow Ethiopians through the national dialogue.
