Bennet, Hickenlooper, Crow Issue Statement After Meeting with the United States Special Envoy for the Horn of Africa

Washington, D.C.  Last week, Colorado U.S. Senators Michael Bennet and John Hickenlooper and Colorado U.S. Representative Jason Crow met with Jeffrey Feltman, the United States Special Envoy for the Horn of Africa. Bennet, Hickenlooper, and Crow issued the following statement: 

“We remain concerned about the ongoing conflict and humanitarian crisis in Ethiopia, especially as famine worsens in Tigray and violence continues in regions across the country. We call on all parties involved to immediately implement a sustainable, negotiated ceasefire and bring an end to the violence. There must also be full humanitarian access to the region to ensure critical aid reaches people in need. The prolonged suffering of innocent civilians is unacceptable, and those committing human rights abuses should be held accountable.”
