Addis Ababa, December 04, 2021 (ENA) The Inter-Religious Council of Ethiopia has urged Western countries that are trying to harm Ethiopia refrain from their evil deeds.
Briefing the media, Inter-Religious Council of Ethiopia Secretary-General Liqe Tiguhan Qesis Tagay Tadelle called on all citizens to stand together for the sovereignty and national interest of Ethiopia.
He also urged countries, institutions, individuals and the media that have launched a vicious campaign and unjust pressure on Ethiopia to refrain from their distractive acts.
Even if the Inter-Religious Council of Ethiopia is neutral from any political affiliation, it opposes all activities that are against the sovereignty and unity of the nation, he underlined.
Although religious fathers and elders had exerted efforts to mediate and bring peace, they were unable to succeed due to the refusal of the terrorist TPLF, the secretary-general recalled.
