Ethiopia’s Foreign Affairs ministry Thursday accused US ambassador Ervin Masinga of making a statement

The Ethiooian government gave a Press Release regarding the spexxh of American Ambassador.

On 15 May 2024, the Ambassador of the United States of America in Addis Ababa read a Statement called “Policy Speech on Human Rights and Dialogue” containing allegations against, and unsolicited advice to the Government of Ethiopia on how best to run the affairs of the country and mention groups bent on overthrowing the elected Government by force, and known for blackmailing, kidnapping, and
terrorizing civilians.

The statement is ill-advised and contains uninformed assertions. It is contrary to the historic and friendly relations between Ethiopia and the United States. The two countries have maintained close ties and continue consulting on national, regional, and global issues of common concern. Ethiopia has been open to discussing wide-ranging topics with the United States, including efforts toward peace and security, ensuring respect for human rights, and nurturing democracy in the country. The Ministry will work with the Embassy of the United States in Addis Ababa to correct factual errors and inconsistencies in the statement. It will suggest better ways befitting diplomatic decorum; and that will not undermine democratic processes and peace in the country. Ethiopia remains committed to a mutually respectful bilateral dialogue and relations with the United States.
