Addis Abeba, March 04/2021 – Tigray regional state interim administration has reached at a unanimous stand on the need for the withdrawal of Eritrean troops from the region.

The interim administration’s bureau head Gebremeskel Kassa told the BBC Amharic that Eritrean troops are in Tigray and have “controlled areas in the region and committed crimes.”

The presence of Eritrean troops is “a fact the people saw with their eyes; therefore the interim administration has reached at a unanimous resolution” that they should withdraw, Gebremeskel is quoted as saying.

Despite increasing calls from various countries and international organizations for Eritrean troops to withdraw from Tigray, both Addis Abeba and Asmara have denied the reports of the presence and participation of Eritrean troops in the armed conflict in Tigray. AS
