October 1, 2021
Press Release
WASHINGTON - Today, Rep. Karen Bass, Chair of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, issued the following statement:

"I am deeply concerned by the decision of the Government of Ethiopia to expel seven United Nations officials. These actions only frustrate international efforts to support the millions of civilians who have been displaced and face famine conditions because of the current conflict. I urge the Government of Ethiopia to commit to the preservation of life and dignity and work with the United Nations and humanitarian organizations to deliver food, medicine, and other lifesaving aid to those who need it most."
