“Those of you who follow our policies, programs, and comments know how strongly and consistently we support a united Ethiopia working together for peace, prosperity, and political inclusiveness. And you know we stand shoulder to shoulder with all Ethiopians of good will working to achieve these outcomes.

We are deeply troubled by the recent hatred, inflammatory language, and violence, as we are by all such incidents in Ethiopia. Violence and hatred are the solution to exactly none of Ethiopia’s challenges. As we have done before, do now, and hope not to have to do in the future, we condemn in the strongest terms all those who engage in violence and all those who incite violence. There is no justification for such behavior, ever.

For Ethiopia to build the peaceful, prosperous, and politically inclusive future that so many of you tell us you want to see, Ethiopians must unify around, and work toward, that vision. Anyone who undercuts these efforts undercuts the best interests of all Ethiopians, now and in the future. In the end, each of us is responsible for our actions and decisions. Provoking violence is morally reprehensible. So too is failing to reject such provocation.

All of us have the freedom — and more importantly, the responsibility — to choose peace, unity, and tolerance. There is never a good reason to do otherwise.”

Mike Raynor, US Ambassador

Addis Abeba, Ethiopia

    Now, I think time seems over! one of the ISS branch and leader #Jawar#, an American citizen, slaughter poor Ethiopians in the country for his evil purposes! The government is not yet taking any measures on him! It shows for other true Ethiopians something! The so called PM of the country didn’t consult the #Amhara# people when he involved to order in killing of our leader
