Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed met with senior commanders of the Tigray region troops on Friday for the first time since they signed a peace deal with the national government that ended two years of conflict, according to the state-run television.
“PM Abiy … and other officials met today and held a discussion with the TPLF delegation regarding the progress of the peace process,” the Ethiopian Broadcasting Corporation announced on Twitter.
“As a result, PM Abiy passed decisions about increasing flights, banking and other issues that would boost trust and ease the lives of civilians.”
In November 2022, the Addis Ababa administration and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) signed an agreement to end conflict that had killed tens of thousands and displaced millions.
The meeting on Friday was Abiy’s first with senior administrators from the northern Tigray region since the violence began.
The war was rooted in long-standing territorial and other grievances between Tigray elites and other regions, which had accumulated during decades of turbulence, violent regime change, and extended periods of authoritarian control.
