Peace deal with OLA concluded with no deal

The Ethiopian government announced today that the first phase of talks with the rebel group operating in Oromia had come to an end.

The two have been negotiating in Tanzania since last week, with an agreement now being reached to resolve the conflict peacefully.

“In large parts, the negotiations went well,” said the Federal Government Communication Service in a statement issued today.

The two however failed to reach consensus on many issues, which both agreed to resolve in negotiations planned to be held in the near future.

According to the Service, “the government is ready to find a peaceful resolution for the conflict based on the constitution.”

Many parts of Oromia, primarily in the region’s west, have seen conflict over the last four years as the fight between the Oromo Liberation Army (OLA) and the ruling government continued.
