US gives China victory in Ethiopia

Just as Ethiopian government forces appear to have turned the tide in the country’s so-called civil war, the Biden administration is urging U.S. citizens in Ethiopia to leave and offering relocation assistance to those who cannot afford plane tickets.

Meanwhile, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi has visited Addis Ababa and made it clear that China fully supports the government of Ethiopia. This is in contrast to the United States, which has imposed sanctions on Ethiopia, but not on the rebellious Tigray.

As Bloomberg reports, the US suspended duty-free access to its exports last month “due to gross human rights violations,” which remain largely undocumented.
