Premier deplores attempt to incite violence under guise of flag
Addis Ababa, September 13, 2018 (FBC) –Prime Minister Dr Abiy Ahmed deplored an attempt being made to incite violence in Addis Ababa under the guise of a flag.
The right of freedom of expression includes a flag as well, the Premier said, adding “we should not marginalize political parties coming from abroad.”
“As there will be no a single winner, we should cooperate with each other by resolving our differences through dialogue,” the Premier added.
Prime Minister Dr Abiy urged competing political parties to focus on achieving win-win ends and resolving problems of the Ethiopian people.
The attempt being made to incite violence under the guise of a flag is unacceptable, he said, and urged those who are trying to incite violence to refrain from pushing the people into conflict.
