The African Union mediates the Ethiopian armed conflict and the two sides reach a consensus to quickly end the conflict
Due to the armed conflict in Tigray, Ethiopia, the AU sent a team of former Mozambican President Akin Chissano, former Liberian President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf and former South African President Mo from November 25 to 27, 2020. The trio of Tranti formed an African Union mission to Ethiopia for mediation.
The African Union special mission held talks with the Ethiopian Prime Minister, the President and the person in charge of the conflict zone in Tigray and reached the following consensus:
- 1. The two parties said they would end the conflict quickly.
- 2. Tigray will establish a multi-party temporary management agency to restore Tigray to normal.
- 3. Establish humanitarian aid corridors in conflict areas and assess the basic humanitarian needs of local people.
- 4. Ethiopia will pick up refugees from neighboring countries and dispose of them properly.
- 5. Rebuild the public infrastructure of Tigray.
- 6. Ethiopia will establish a government in which all ethnic groups are tolerant, instead of becoming a country where one group oppresses another group.
