JUBA – Ethiopian Prime Minister Dr. Abiy Ahmed has convened a National Security Council meeting to discuss many security issues in the country among which is the ongoing conflict in northern Tigray region.
The meeting is the first of its kind for the National Security Council since two weeks ago when the Prime Minister declared that he was joining in on front lines to command the Ethiopian federal forces against the TPLF.
The TPLF had been advancing on the capital Addis Ababa after federal forces and allies in Amhara and Afar regions decided to withdraw, allowing the TPLF to fill the vacuum.
“The National Security Council discussed current security issues in the country and set forth future directions,” Prime Minister Ahmed’s office said in a brief social media statement.
Abiy’s presence at the front lines boosted morale of the Ethiopian federal forces and allies leading to recapture of most towns taken by the Tigray People’s Liberation Front in Afar and Amhara regions in October.
