– Government Communications Minister Kebede Desisaa said the government had warned the US embassy and organizations of its continued practice of disseminating false information.
During day-to-day public relations with the state media, Kebede said that Previously this organization disseminated information that ‘Addis Ababa was under siege’ and this has now been replaced with other false information about a terrorist threat.
On November 24th, the US embassy in Addis Ababa announced to US citizens a warning that “Terrorists can attack without or without warning and target diplomatic establishments, tourist spots, transportation hubs, markets / malls, western businesses, restaurants, resorts, local government facilities and other public areas.”
The Secretary of State said these US embassy statements put pressure on other embassies and institutions to leave the country n, and warned the US embassy, according to state media, to refrain from such practices.
Such steps w would violate the historical ties between the two countries, he said, calling on Ethiopians living abroad and those of Ethiopian descent on not cooperating in this conspiracy. He also accused U.S. aid agencies of saying they would give up their airworks and leave. Ethiopians will not change our dignity for wheat, Kebede was quoted as saying. AS
