Pope condemns Ethiopia’s humanitarian crisis, urges dialogue

Vatican City (AP) – Pope Francis on Sunday condemned the worsening humanitarian crisis in Ethiopia and pressed for negotiations to win the long war.

In his traditional appearance before the public in Saint Peter’s Square, the pontiff said he was following with “concern” news from the Horn of Africa, particularly from Ethiopia, “shaken by a conflict that lasted more than a year. Has been dragged by and has caused many victims and a serious humanitarian crisis.”

The war in Ethiopia’s northern Tigre region killed thousands and displaced millions and left many suffering severe hunger.

“I invite everyone to pray for those who have been so harshly tried, and I repeat my appeal so that a peaceful path of brotherly harmony and dialogue can prevail,” Francis said.
