‘My country in trouble’: #WHO chief on #Ethiopia’s #Tigray conflict
Tedros, the world’s highest-profile Tigrayan, told Monday’s news conference that he had many relatives in the troubled region, “including my younger brother, and I don’t know where they are.”
“I have not communicated with them because communication is not there.”
“As if #COVID is not enough, I have that personal pain also,” he said. “I worry about the whole country.
“I cannot worry about my younger brother or my relatives alone because the situation is worsening.”
Last month, the Ethiopian government accused Tedros, who from 2005-2012 served as health minister under then-TPLF leader Meles Zenawi, of lobbying for and seeking to arm the region’s leaders.
Tedros denied those accusations in a tweet, saying he had seen the destructive nature of war as a child, and had “used that first-hand experience to always work for peace”.
“There have been reports suggesting I am taking sides in this situation. This is not true,” he wrote. “I want to say that I am on only one side, and that is the side of peace.”
