"The secretary-general urges the parties to grasp this opportunity, cease hostilities in the year-long conflict, take all steps to ensure the provision of much-needed humanitarian assistance, the withdrawal of foreign fighters, and address political differences through a credible and inclusive national dialogue," said the statement.

Guterres also called on the international community to play a constructive role in supporting an end to the fighting in northern Ethiopia, which broke out in Tigray in November 2020 before spilling over to neighboring Afar and Amhara regions.
