Several people have been killed, and thousands displaced following the conflict between the Special Forces of the Tigray Regional government, and the Ethiopian government.
The conflict saw the US imposing wide-ranging restrictions on economic and security assistance to Ethiopia.
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced visa restrictions on Ethiopian and Eritrean officials and others who are accused of atrocities.
In March this year, Blinken urged Kenyan leadership in working with the US on the UN Security Council and in other venues to address the crisis in Ethiopia’s Tigray region, particularly in light of recent reports of atrocities and a worsening humanitarian situation.
Blinken emphasised the US commitment to working with Kenya to advance their shared interests in trade, democracy, human rights, global health, regional security, and climate change for the benefit of the American and Kenyan people.
