Abiy Ahmed announces access to Tigray for seven international media organisations

Eritrea Ethiopia Tigray

(By Mekete Tigray UK, 24 February 2021) –

After blocking access to the international media since the war in Tigray broke out on 4 November 2020, Abiy Ahmed has finally conceded to give access to Tigray for seven international media organisations including BBC, Reuters, Al Jazeera, AFP, New York Times, France 24 and Financial Times.

Aid agencies have also been granted visas and access but remains the mandate of Federal Government, facilitated by the Ministry of Peace which the government has been using different obstacles to block humanitarian food aid deliveries to rural areas in Tigray. As reported by Adigrat residents, humaniterian food aid intended for the people of Tigray was taken by Eritrean troops to Eritrea.

It is early days to speculate if Abiy’s administration  will commit to making the announcement a reality on the ground.

  1. It looks beautiful letter , did this man have some experts who are good in photoshoping ? I mean in polishing and editing its letter to look politically and aesthetically very pleasing ? They made us to think there is no a gun shot in the region at all .

    They possess great skills required in the arena of politics. Keep doing it to delude the naive people . It will not work for you among journalists and diplomats from US and EU.
