ENDF & TPLF Commanders Agree on Roadmap to Execute Peace Deal

ADDIS ABABA – Senior Commanders of the Ethiopian federal army and TPLF concluded their meeting in Nairobi with an agreement that lays out a roadmap for implementation of the Pretoria peace deal.

The two sides agreed to lay down their arms after a cessation of hostilities agreement (CoHA) brokered by the African Union on November 2, 2022.

For the past four days, the ENDF and TPLF commanders were discussing how to implement the terms of the peace deal in Nairobi, Kenya.

“Declaration of (an) executive plan of the Pretoria peace agreement has just been signed,” said Redwan Hussain, national security advisor to the PM Office of Ethiopia, late on Saturday.

“Again ‘African Solutions for African Problems’ has been upheld,” Redwan added.

AU applauds both

The AU High Representative for the Horn of Africa Olusegun Obasanjo, together with AU High-Level Panel Members, led the talks between the commanders in Kenya.

“The parties have agreed to facilitate unhindered humanitarian access to all in need of assistance in Tigray and neighboring regions, facilitate the unhindered movement of humanitarian aid workers, provide security guarantees for humanitarian aid workers and organizations as well as protection of civilians consistent with the provisions of the CoHA,” the AU said.

The two sides also agreed to the establishment of a Joint Committee to elaborate on the modalities for the implementation of a comprehensive Disarmament, Demobilization, and Reintegration (DDR) program.

The AU Commission has applauded “the Parties on these significant confidence-building measures”, said the Union in a statement issued on Saturday.

AU also encourages both to continue towards the full implementation of the CoHA, as part of overall efforts to end the conflict and restore peace, security, and stability in Ethiopia.
