The Council of the European Union has today approved conclusions on Ethiopia, strengthening the EU's support to the country in the Horn of Africa and the Red Sea, and emphasizing the importance of working together to achieve long-lasting peace.

The EU has urged the Ethiopian government and the Tigray People's Liberation Front to implement the agreement for long-lasting peace through the permanent cessation of hostilities, reached on November 2, 2022. In the event that the agreement is respected, the EU will gradually normalize relations with Ethiopia and strategically engage with the country again. Responsibility and transitional justice are fundamental in this context.

The EU Council has also expressed concern about the escalation of tensions, human rights violations and abuses, and violence taking place in different parts of the country. The EU is closely monitoring the situation and is inviting all parties to adopt an attitude of dialogue and cooperation.

The EU's support for Ethiopia stems from the recognition of the country as an important strategic partner for the EU, particularly in the Horn of Africa and the Red Sea. Cooperation with Ethiopia concerns many aspects, including sustainable development, democratic governance, regional peace and security, and facilitating trade.
