We welcome cordial relations between sovereign states, and also the important role that regional bodies such as the Intergovernmental Authority on Development and the African Union play in security in the Horn. The continued presence of Eritrean forces in Tigray, in Ethiopia, fuels insecurity. These forces must leave Ethiopia immediately. We continue to urge all parties to the conflict to end fighting and seek a political solution.
