The move for international aid to intervene in the Tigray violence has been met with denial. This after India, Russia and China aired objections to the movement. Tigray is in a state of violence following political differences and now expressing inter-ethnic conflicts. A severe humanitarian crisis has overtaken the region. Thousands of people have been killed, and others are seeking asylum in neighboring countries. The UN security council was to approve the call for an end of violence in Ethiopia. However, drawing the response from the three states, Ireland, with the statement that requires approval to help Ethiopia.
The proposed draft on Tigray violence
Entering its fourth month now, Tigray violence is currently getting out of hand. As of now, the actual number of casualties is yet to be known. The statement was calling for the end of violence in Tigray. However, it fails to mention sanctions and foreign forces. It further fails to acknowledge the rising need for humanitarian aid in the region.
Reason for denial from the three states
According to council diplomats, China wanted a statement that entirely focuses on humanitarian aid. A notion that completely lacks in the proposed statement. Russia joins China in support. And for India, its views require a minor change.
The UN humanitarian chief, Mark Lowcock, gives a warning for an upcoming campaign of destruction. Apart from 45 million people in dire need of assistance, Mark calls for justice for Eritrean forces’ crimes.
Eritrea forces on Tigray violence
According to Amnesty International’s report, Eritrea forces are responsible for the massacre of thousands of civilians. The Ethiopian government conquers with the Amnesty reports on the Eritrean troops. The Human rights watch in Ethiopia calls for the UN to make investigations into the Eritrean forces crimes.
