What is the status of Zemen Kassie? Interview with Zemene Kassie’s lawyer. Diplomats based in Addis Ababa and representatives of international organizations are briefed about the anticipated negotiation and the changing circumstances in the conflict in northern Ethiopia, which has gone unresolved for the past 23 months, days before the proposed peace negotiation in South Africa. “Ethiopia is ready for the peace negotiations set to be held in South Africa, as the government has been saying it is ready to go anywhere and anytime to peacefully resolve the conflict,” Demeke Mekonen, deputy PM and minister of Foreign Affairs told the diplomatic corps. “As residents here, you would understand the devastating consequences of the fourth round of conflict. The TPLF must be denied the opportunity to rearm and mobilize again for the fourth round of conflict,” he added. His statement comes as AU confirms the peace talk is rescheduled to be held in South Africa on October 24, 2022. On Friday, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, US permanent representative to the UN, warned “it is past time to lay down arms,” stating half a million Ethiopians and 26 humanitarian workers died in the war.
