    Representatives from Ethiopia’s federal government and the Tigray regional state have begun negotiations in Addis Ababa to resolve difficulties in implementing the Pretoria peace accord.

    The agreement, arranged by the two sides and signed in South Africa in November 2022, seeks to restore calm to the region following the fighting between the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) and the federal government, which began in November 2020.

    Tensions have risen as a result of challenges in executing the accord, causing the African Union to mediate meetings in order to find a solution.

    The Pretoria Agreement tackles problems such as power sharing, regional autonomy, and resource control, with the goal of addressing the conflict’s underlying causes via discussion.

    Getachew Reda, the temporary president of Tigray’s administration, has stated that no more bilateral discussions with the federal government would take place until all outstanding concerns are handled.

    The mediation delegation includes former Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and former Nigerian President Olusegun Obassanjo.
