Dear Mr Berihu,
We thank you for your comments, which have been read attentively and duly taken note of.
As expressed in the above mentioned resolution, the European Parliament recalled that respect for human rights and the rule of law are crucial to the EU’s policies to promote development in Ethiopia and throughout the Horn of Africa. It called on the EU, as the single largest donor, to monitor programmes and policies effectively to ensure that EU development assistance is not contributing to human rights violations in Ethiopia.
In order to keep up-to-date with further developments on relations with Ethiopia, please consult the EP website, as well as that of the EU delegation in Nigeria and the European External Action Service.
