#Exclusive #UK Ambassador calls #Eritrea to withdraw its forces from #Ethiopia


UK Ambassador to Ethiopia Darren Welch calls on the Eritrean government to withdraw its forces from Ethiopia, particularly from #Tigray.

“The Pretoria agreement is very clear in calling for Eritrean forces to leave all Ethiopian territory, and here in Tigrai of course. And the United Kingdom wants that to happen,” said in an interview with Tigrai Television this morning.

The Ambassador said this as he and his delegation took a visit to the largest hospital in Tigrai, Ayder Referral Hospital.

9 months into the Pretoria peace agreement, Eritrean forces still have the control over parts of Eastern, Central, Northwestern and Western Tigrai.

The Ambassador also noted that the UK will seriously follow the full implementation of the Pretoria Cessation of Hostilities Agreement signed between Ethiopia government and the TPLF.
