Athens welcomes Ethiopia truce

Greece has welcomed a decision by Ethiopia’s government Thursday to declare an immediate, unilateral truce in its conflict with rebellious Tigrayan forces to allow aid into the northern province.

In a statement Saturday, the Greek Foreign Ministry also welcomed a statement by Tigrayan rebels who agreed to a “cessation of hostilities,” marking a turning point in the nearly 17-month war in northern Ethiopia. 

“Both sides should now work to ensure that life-saving humanitarian aid reaches those in need,” the statement said.
