Blinken says Ethiopia conflict risks implosion of country

The United States has sanctions authority to use against individuals who are fueling the crisis in Ethiopia, which is escalating ethnic tensions and risking the country’s implosion, according to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Friday.

“We’ve already used some of them against Eritrea, which has been a really nasty participant in this story. Those tools are still available to us for use by others “Blinken spoke on the crisis in Africa’s second largest country at the Reuters Next conference.
