Addis Ababa (Ethiopia Today), April 25, 2023: Ethiopia has made commendable progress following the Cessation of Hostilities Agreement signed in Pretoria, the UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for the Horn of Africa, Hanna Serwaa Tetteh, said.
The special envoy said this while attending a program under the theme “Enough with War; Let Us Sustain Peace” to honor and recognize those who have played pivotal roles in the process of the Pretoria Peace Agreement.
“I think that it’s very important that this milestone has been reached because, indeed, it indicates that there has been significant progress made since the Cessation of Hostilities Agreement signed in Pretoria last year,” she added.
“The work so far should continue, as peacemaking is a process that goes on till communities are reconciled with one another.”
“I am extremely pleased that so much progress has been made over a period of about six months. And on behalf of the United Nations and all my colleagues who work within the UN country team in Ethiopia, who have in northern Ethiopia, in Tigray, Afar, and Amhara, provided support to communities that have been affected by the conflicts,” she added.
“We welcome the recognition that has been given to the United Nations for the work that we have done in support of Ethiopia’s peace process,” she said.
