Blinken calls for urgent negotiations over Ethiopia military escalation

NAIROBI (Reuters) – U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken is greatly concerned about Ethiopia’s military escalation and called for urgent negotiations over the crisis, a U.S. State Department spokesperson said.

“Secretary Blinken expressed grave concern about worrying signs of military escalation in Ethiopia and emphasised the need to urgently move to negotiations,” Ned Price said in a statement late on Friday.

Price released the statement after a phone call between Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta and Blinken.
