1:02 am
uncertainty. in a country over 110000000 people over 90 different ethnic groups and 80 languages. no one can predict what continued fighting and insecurity will bring. but let me be clear. what a certain is that the risk of ethiopia descending into a widening civil war is only to real african union, special envoy or 7 of a sandra also addressed the security council. after attempts at mediation between the federal forces and rebel t cry, and aroma fighters. all the, those images, obama, i'm in the north, agree individually, that the difference between them are political or political solution for all dialogue. if therefore, constitutes
1:03 am

1:04 am
. he's been to t gray. he's been asked speaking to the government. ah, he's been accompanied at times by the un. it's own representative a who has been involved in a mediation efforts there. martin griffith. so the security council is hearing all this information that is receiving. but in the last few minutes is just being addressed by the ethiopian ambassador to the un who made clear one very, a clear point on the part of the ethiopian government. this is not about 2 parties involved. it is an elected government, as he puts it as competing against a rebel movement to which is battling through atrocity. so any idea as far as ethiopian government, it would appear of some kind of mediated solution between equal potties is just not on the table. and this is something that some on the security council had been working towards so many major problems ahead for the security council in terms of
1:05 am
getting a unified position on this crisis in terms of action and what the un here to council might do if there isn't an agreement what, what are the options? well, the security council has already released a statement calling for an end to the conflict and calling very importantly for humanitarian access to be guaranteed. you can't see it moving much, far, that at the present time, there's no talk within the security council of any form of sanction against any of the parties involved. russia in particular, i supports ethiopia in its position that it is the elected government. and as such, it is not a question of mediating between equal parties in a conflict. it is a mediating between a government and forces that are attempting to unseat that government. so that is the issue that the security council is facing. but while it continues to wrangle behind closed doors over this, cuz the president of the security council insist that there's absolutely no
