EU suspends financial aid to Ethiopia over human rights violations in Tigray

European Union has suspended financial assistance to Ethiopia over human rights violation in Tigray region of Ethiopia. EU provides around 90 million euros to Ethiopia as financial aid which is around 10 percent of Ethiopian budget. Earlier Amnesty International and United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees raised their concerns about grave human rights abuses and war crimes committed in Tigray where Ethiopian government forces are fighting against Tigray fighters. Last week, US Senators called upon US government to impose sanctions on Ethiopia for war crimes in Tigray.
