Ethiopia reacts to EU requests to special UN rights council session on Ethiopia

“Ethiopia once again is perplexed and saddened by the regrettable situation that is unfolding at the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva.”

“This, of course, is not the first time Ethiopia witnessed such unjust and counterproductive attempts by some to exert political pressure. At the 47th Session of the Council, despite the Ethiopian Government‘s repeated appeal for the Council to allow the joint investigation team to complete its work, these countries went on to adopt a resolution that neither involved the country concerned nor considered the call by others to withdraw the resolution.”

“The Government of Ethiopia would like to assure members of the Human Rights Council and the international community of its commitment to continue to engage in a constructive manner and fulfill its obligations under international law to respect, protect and fulfill human rights.”
