Statement by the Spokesperson on the lifting of the State of Emergency in Ethiopia

The political transition in Ethiopia in the past few weeks has led to concrete reform efforts by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali and his Government, which should create a more inclusive society.

Today's lifting of the State of Emergency by the Parliament is another positive step that will contribute to an environment where all relevant stakeholders can take part in that process.

The EU remains ready to assist the Government in its reform endeavours in view of the next local elections, which includes political dialogue and political reforms meeting the expectations of the Ethiopian people as well as economic reforms to facilitate the work of businesses as well as job creation.
