AU: Ethiopia and Sudan should refrain from military action
June 29, 2022 Mr Everywhere EAST AFRICA, EDITORIAL
The head of the AU Commission has called for “restraint, calm and dialogue” as the border dispute between Ethiopia and Sudan threatens to escalate.
In a statement, Moussa Faki Mahamat said “the two brotherly countries” should settle any disagreement peacefully.
Ethiopian and Sudanese forces have clashed at the disputed al-Fashaga border area following the alleged capture, execution, and public display of the bodies of seven Sudanese soldiers and a civilian killed over the weekend.
Al-Fashaga is where the northwest of Ethiopia’s Amhara region meets Sudan’s breadbasket, Gedaref state.
It has been contested for decades but tensions have increased over the last year with regular skirmishes reported between the two countries.
