Far from it. The issue is the TPLF Terrorist organization has taken 6 million people in Ethiopia’s northern Tigray region hostage & it wants to negotiate with their lives. That’s the real issue the Western media willfully ignores. NoMore

In other words you’re saying Abiy has to allow the invasion of Amhara & Afar again (for the second round), facilitate genocides, rape, massive robbery & displacement of millions. Don’t try to fool me that, as TPLF is shelling Afar & Amhara towns with heavy artillery. Idiot! If he is serious about peace he should let the rebels to inter Addis Ababa 😉

Who will be the smart leader in the world to understand the meaning of starving the meaning of bombing the innocent kids in Tigray pls help me out to understand in 2022 NoMore RAbdiAnalyst When TPLF lost all the wars, ur fake tongue and paper roar about tigray. Leave them, tplf didn't , don't have objective except achieving ur goals.

RAbdiAnalyst The world already wake up, ..... at least change the tactics RAbdiAnalyst CIA, the MOJO is over. AbiyAhmed is not able to survive in peace. Similarly, the dictator in Eritrea is not for peace. All what AbiyAhmed does is misleading the world to buy time & destroy Tegaru. He is not to be trusted for peacemaking. Surely, he is working for a major offensive on the background.

It is shame & immoral blaming the victims without assessing the cause for the crisis in 🇪🇹 .TPLF, never care for Tigray people & peace b/c war is the most lucrative business for them.If they are ready to stop the human suffering in Tigray they have stop the war now. Don’t blame Who is fighting? Do u have any clue about this? Pls check your source of info if your blindness emabates from it.

Android . Ethiopia’s civil war has certainly cooled down. In late 2021 rebels from the northern region of Tigray were on the brink of storming the capital and toppling the government of Abiy Ahmed, the prime minister. Abiy declared a state of emergency and called on residents to fight. Embassies evacuated staff and urged their citizens to leave. But in a matter of weeks the Ethiopian army pushed the rebels into retreat. Tigray’s ruling party, the Tigrayan People’s Liberation Front ( TPLF ), asked for a ceasefire. Though fighting continues on several fronts, Abiy has declared victory. Before the war Abiy was known as a peacemaker. He won a Nobel prize in 2019 for ending hostilities with neighbouring Eritrea, and was praised for helping to mediate a power-sharing deal in Sudan. Ethiopia’s year-long civil war, during which the army and its allies have committed war crimes, has damaged that reputation. Now Abiy is hoping to mend it. First his government announced that the army would not seek to reoccupy Tigray. Instead he urged Tigrayans to fight the TPLF . Then, on Ethiopian Christmas, he freed several opposition leaders from prison, including Jawar Mohammed, his chief rival from the Oromo ethnic group, and six TPLF officials. The prime minister described the move as an act of victor’s mercy, saying that it was necessary for Ethiopia to break the cycle of war. The government wants freed opposition leaders to take part in a so-called “national dialogue”, which is to weigh matters such as the country’s controversial system of ethnically based federalism. But they are unlikely to do so just yet. “As it is, the intended national dialogue can be neither inclusive nor impartial,” says Jawar’s ally, Merera Gudina. Other powerful Oromo opposition figures, such as Dawud Ibsa, leader of the Oromo Liberation Front ( OLF ), remain in custody. The OLF ’s armed wing is deemed a terrorist group by the government and is therefore excluded from talks, too. An even bigger challenge is the TPLF , which the government also calls a terrorist group. Officially it will not be invited to the dialogue. But it is possible that the government may want to start separate peace talks with it. An internal document prepared by the ruling party and seen by The Economist did not rule this out. “There was a clear suggestion that we should be talking to them,” says a senior ruling party official who attended the meeting at which the paper was discussed. It would be a controversial move. The release of TPLF officials from prison sparked an uproar, especially among Abiy’s allies in Amhara, the second most populous region and the focus of fighting in recent months. The National Movement of Amhara, an opposition party, called the release a “historic mistake”. Negotiation with the TPLF would probably provoke even more anger. “How can we talk with people who are still waging war?” asks an Amhara ruling-party parliamentarian. Many would prefer the government to lay siege to Tigray until its leaders surrender. That still looks like the plan. No aid of any kind has entered Tigray since mid-December and almost no medicine has been allowed in since June. “Our hospital is out of supplies,” says a doctor at Tigray’s largest one. After more than a year of war some 400,000 people are starving and millions more are running out of food. Drones and fighter jets, meanwhile, pound Tigrayans from the air. On January 8th at least 56 people were reportedly killed in an air strike on a camp for internally displaced people, prompting aid agencies to suspend their work. If Abiy is serious about giving peace a chance, he should first stop fighting. ■ This article appeared in the Middle East & Africa section of the print edition under the headline "Happy Christmas, war is over?"
