Does Ethiopia’s PM want a peaceful end to the Tigray war? – Aljazeera.com

Video Duration 25 minutes 00 seconds

From: Inside Story

Abiy Ahmed pardoned political prisoners and called for ‘national dialogue’, but air raids continue to kill civilians.

Ethiopia’s government appears to be offering an olive branch to end more than a year of conflict in the northern Tigray region.

Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed is releasing several high-profile political prisoners, including leaders of the rebel Tigray People’s Liberation Front.

Abiy says this will pave the way for a national dialogue for lasting peace.

But some government critics called it a publicity stunt, especially after a government air attack killed at least 56 internally displaced people near the Eritrean border.

So, how genuine is Abiy’s offer of a peaceful solution?
