Urgent Inquiry Regarding Implementation of Pretoria Peace Agreement in Tigray

Dear.Ambassador Michael Hammer

I trust this message finds you well. I am writing to express deep concern regarding the non-implementation of the Pretoria Peace Agreement in Tigray and the severe humanitarian crisis it has triggered. The suffering, hunger, and displacement of millions in Tigray demand urgent attention and action.

To address this critical situation, I would appreciate your insights on the following pressing matters:

Specific Timeline for IDP Return: Could you provide a specific timeline for the return of internally displaced persons (IDPs) to restore the pre-war status in West and Southern Tigray Territories? The urgency of their return is paramount to mitigate the ongoing humanitarian crisis.

Humanitarian Catastrophe and Silent Genocide:
Given the alarming reports of a looming humanitarian catastrophe in Tigray, comparable to the famine of 1984-85, what steps is the United States government taking to prevent further suffering? How can we ensure that the international community is actively engaged in addressing this silent genocide?

Constitutional Order Restoration: What steps is the U.S. taking to ensure the restoration of constitutional order in Tigray? This includes returning the region to its pre-war status, a crucial element in stabilizing the situation.

Withdrawal of Non-ENDF Forces: How is the U.S. advocating for the immediate withdrawal of non-Ethiopian National Defense Forces (ENDF) from Tigray? Addressing this matter urgently is vital for the region’s stability.

Independent Monitoring and Verification Mechanisms: What measures are being taken to establish independent monitoring and verification mechanisms to oversee the implementation of the peace agreement? Transparency and accountability are crucial in ensuring compliance.

Consequences of Non-Implementation: If the Pretoria Peace Agreement is not implemented urgently, what regional consequences and implications does the U.S. foresee? Understanding the potential fallout is essential for preemptive action.

The gravity of the situation cannot be overstated, and swift, decisive action is imperative to prevent further suffering and loss of life. Your insights on these matters would be highly appreciated.
