Ethiopia's Clash with Tigray: Getting to a Ceasefire and National Dialogue

Eminent Ethiopian statesmen, African leaders and the country’s international partners need to urgently press Addis Ababa and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) to cease fire and enter unconditional discussions on sustaining a truce. As soon as the shooting stops, all sides should embrace a comprehensive national dialogue that many within and outside Ethiopia view as the surest way of steadying its troubled transition.
