The UK is supporting efforts to secure a meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss the return to conflict in Ethiopia. The UK also raised the situation in Ethiopia during a UN Security Council discussion on conflict and hunger on 15 September.

The UK has been heavily involved in international efforts to de-escalate conflict, stressing the need for a political solution, humanitarian access and accountability for atrocities. We are now urging both parties to deliver on their commitments to end the conflict peacefully and to begin African Union-led peace talks. Our Embassy in Addis Ababa is engaging with all parties to the conflict to deliver these messages.
