Ethiopia denies serious allegations from the United States


Ethiopia has denied allegations by the United States that it is obstructing humanitarian assistance to people affected by the conflict in Tigray.

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has blamed the Ethiopian government for a lack of aid in the Tigray region.

She warned that food aid would be cut off in the region this weekend.

Hundreds of thousands of people are at risk of starvation, amid fierce fighting between government forces and the TPLF.

But the Ethiopian government has denied that humanitarian aid has been deliberately blocked in the region.

A spokesman for Prime Minister Abi Ahmed told reporters that his government had always allowed aid trucks to enter the Tigray region but due to the ongoing fighting, the aid had not reached its destination.
