“It is well known that these international and human rights organizations have been making a lot of noise in the past by raising irrelevant things. Presently, the Ethiopian government is  determined to  provide the necessary support for the concerned human right originations so that they can investigate the worst human rights abuses and massacres of civilians in the Amhara and Afar regions.”
