JOE BIDEN PLACE HARSH SANCTIONS ON PARTRIES INVOLVED IN TIGRAY’S REGION

US President, Joe Biden has stated that the Executive Order signed yesterday seeks to place harsh sanctions on all sides involved in the war in Ethiopia’s northern Tigray region.

President Biden in a statement said the Executive Order establishes a new sanction regime that will allow the US Government to target those responsible for the conflict in Ethiopia.

He said the sanctions will push for a peaceful resolution of the conflict and were not directed at the People of Ethiopia.

The President condemned the reported cases of murder, rape, and other sexual violence that have engulfed the country since the violence broke out.

He reinforced the US commitment to supporting the people of Ethiopia and strengthening the historic ties with the country.

He said the US will provide full support to those leading mediation efforts.
