Ethiopia's Senior Ambassador to the U.S. Amb Berhane Kidanemariam Resigns Over Tigray War

Throughout my career, I have always been honest with government and party officials about concerns I have had with the direction of the country, I have always tried to put what I believe is best for my country...Instead of solving conflicts through dialogue, the Prime Minister has chosen to solve ideological and political differences by abusing the judicial system and using the military to suppress opposition to his rule. the Ethiopian government is intensifying its campaign of lies and deceit by denying the presence of foreign powers, denying atrocities being committed against the people of Tigray...I have loved serving as a diplomat for my country but I cannot do so at the expense of my values, and certainly not at the expense of my people

World Bank concerns about 'unrest in Ethiopia'
