This Government is concerned by the recent conflict in the Tigray region of Ethiopia and from the start has called for de-escalation and a long-term political solution.

The Ministry of Defence does not have a contract to sell vehicles to the Government of Ethiopia. We are not aware of any UK Defence-related sales or gifts of military support vehicles to Ethiopia.
