The Government of Tigray welcomes a statement by the Chairperson of the AU Commission, Moussa Faki Mahamat, issued on October 15, calling for an immediate cessation of hostilities and the resumption of humanitarian aid The war that we have been forced to take part in to save our people from extermination has, due to our adversaries’ flagrant disregard for basic rules and norms and genocidal intent, created a ghastly humanitarian crisis. 

The IC has a choice to make: either ensure an immediate cessation of hostilities or help the people of Tigray defend themselves against genocidal onslaught. If neither path is followed, the people of Tigray will continue to fight to ensure their survival.

We are ready to abide by an immediate cessation of hostilities. We also call on the IC to compel the Eritrean army to withdraw from Tigray, take practical steps towards an immediate cessation of hostilities, and press the Ethiopian Government to come to the negotiating table.

The official letter is attached below.
