Mediator Olusegun Obasanjo arrives in Mekelle city to hold talks with Tigray leaders

Olusegen Obasanjo, appointed by African Union to mediate Ethiopia’s Tigray conflict, has arrived in Tigray’s capital city, Mekelle. UN Humanitarian chief, Martin Griffith, is accompanying him. African Union appointed Obasanjo as a mediator to resolve the Tigray conflict a few months ago. But Tigray People’s Liberation Front was hesitant to accept Obanjao’s mediation. United Nations Security Council, European Union, and the US have backed Obasanjo’s mediation in their statements over the past few weeks. It seems that the Tigray government has changed its position a little by agreeing to meet the mediator.
