Ethiopia condemns “Western entities” spreading TPLF propaganda

The Government of Ethiopia today condemned what it calls, “irresponsible allegations of atrocities for sinister political agenda by Western entities.


“The Government of Ethiopia can no longer tolerate the defamatory falsehood being spread against Ethiopia by various Western entities. It is shameful that they parrot TPLF’s irresponsible propaganda that the most heinous crimes could or might be committed in Ethiopia,” Government Communication Service of Ethiopia said in its statement issued this afternoon.

“It is regrettable that few institutions of repute could not resist joining this orchestrated campaign against Ethiopia. Some might be fooled into believing this defamation against Ethiopia. Some share the intention of using these allegations to force Ethiopia into submission. They are mistaken that by making such outrageous allegations they could intimidate the Government of Ethiopia to change course in its defensive measures against the TPLF,” it said.

“Some are jumping to rescue this group no matter what. Some western officials openly admit that they pushed such rhetoric because Ethiopia refused to succumb to their instructions. The bandwagon of accusation and slander does not change facts on the ground. The Government acknowledges that some vulnerable organizations and well-meaning actors could be unwitting participants tin this campaign.”

“It is very irresponsible and shameful that allegations of the most reprehensible and the gravest of all crimes is being made for political ends,” said the Government of Ethiopia indicating its commitment to the African Union led peace talks started in South Africa a few days ago.

“The Government of Ethiopia is thus forced to weigh its options and consider its relations with some states and entities that are making unsubstantiated and politically motivated accusations of such gravity against the country. It cannot continue to tolerate such extreme slander unanswered…The Government of Ethiopia is equally committed to ensuring accountability for violations of human rights and humanitarian law arising out of the conflict,” it said.
