Addis Ababa, November 8, 2021 (Walta) – The Ethiopian Government has called upon Western governments and international organizations to earnestly consider their position towards the Ethiopian government.
According to the statement issued by the government, Ethiopia is striving to end the conflict in the interest of the country and its people who fought to oust a tyrannical regime and elect a new leadership with hopes of a brighter future.
Full statement of the government is stated below.
In Defense of the Nation
Ethiopia has been a victim of massive cyber warfare for the last couple of years following the demise of the terrorist TPLF-led regime. Currently, as the war on the ground rages, it has erupted again and misinformation is deployed as the primary weapon in an attempt to disintegrate the country. We do not recall such a massive scale of propaganda offensive against a nation in recent times.
In every age the vilest specimens of human nature are to be found among demagogues; and they comprise tribal racists, classical white racists, neo-colonizers, mercenaries, and other coward traitors. These vile specimens are often better organized to execute their evil scheme driven by a fatal ego without a burden of moral responsibility, compassion, or intellection. The massive support that the TPLF has garnered from the West—built through impregnable personal and conspiratorial ties—is part of this international drama to prop up a lackey and subservient agent—cost what it may.
The cabal fabricated lies have blinded the world since the fall of the defunct TPLF-led regime. It has deployed time-tested propaganda hyperboles to instigate emotional disgust—and manipulate global opinion. In doing so, major Western news media have simply repeated such hyperboles and lies—as genocide, hunger (as a weapon of war), and massive rape—ad nauseam, undermining evidence-based journalism.
For any impartial observer, the silence of Western governments on the far- reaching violations of human rights during the TPLF’s tyrannical rule of Ethiopia for three decades was proof enough that the accusation of systematic, widespread, and gross violations of human rights by Ethiopian and Eritrean armed forces is just a smokescreen for their underlying geopolitical interest.
Resolutions on the basis of manipulated stories and systematically orchestrated disinformation campaigns have led to uncalled-for—and unjust—sanctions. The US president declaring a buddying Ethiopia as a threat to the national security of the behemoth America, and the subsequent removal of Ethiopia from AGOA provisions, following the Executive Order of the president, are just two poignant examples.
And yet a few days ago, the joint report by the Ethiopian Human Rights Commission (EHRC) and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) cleared the Ethiopian government of charges of genocide and use of hunger as a weapon of war
