Ethiopia calls WHO chief Tedros' comments on Tigray 'unethical' - Business Standard

Quick Summary:

Ethiopia's government is criticising as unethical the statement by the World Health Organisation's director-general that the crisis in the country's Tigray region is the worst disaster on Earth and his assertion that the lack of attention from global leaders may be due to Tigrayans' skin colour.

She spoke a day after the WHO chief in an emotional statement at a press briefing asserted that the 6 million people in Tigray have been under siege for the last 21 months because of the conflict that erupted there in late 2020 between Ethiopian and Tigray forces.

The spokeswoman for Ethiopia's prime minister on Thursday told journalists that the comments by WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus were unbecoming of such a high-profile position.
