Tigray: Feuding parties sign cessation of hostilities, signalling end to 2-year war

The deal came after 10 days of negotiations overseen by a high-level African Union panel led by former Nigerian President Olusgen Obsanjao and supported by the United States, the United Nations and the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD).

Obasanjo said the parties had agreed to the “systematic, smooth and coordinated” disarmament of their forces, as well as to “unhindered humanitarian access” and the “restoration of services” to Tigray.

“This moment is not the end of the peace process, but the beginning of it” said Obasanjo while underlining that the implementation of the agreement was “critical to the success of the process.”
