Oromo Liberation Front’s Temporary Declaration of Unilateral Cease Fire


Oromo Liberation Front’s Temporary Declaration of Unilateral Cease Fire

It is to be recalled that the Oromo Liberation Front had for years repeatedly called for a peaceful and negotiated settlement of political problems with Ethiopian government. We have also recently and repeatedly reiterating this call for peace talk. However, the OLF’s call for peace did not get proper response for a long period of time.

We believe that the recently Oromo Liberation Front higher delegation led by OLF Chairman meeting with the Prime Minister of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, Dr. Abiyi Ahmed as one step forwrs to resolve the existing political problem. To OLF also well aware that all peace loving people and governments wish the commencement of peace talk between OLF and the Ethiopian Government.

Taking the seriousness of this affair into consideration the Oromo Liberation Front has declared a unilateral cease fire in order to accelerate the initiated peace talk to a successful conclusion. We hope this temporary declaration of cease fire will take us to the final declaration of bilateral cessation of hostilities once for all and conclusion of the conflict.

Therefore, the Oromo Liberation Front executive committee instructs the Oromo Liberation Army, operating all over Oromia to implement the temporary declaration of this cease fire.

Victory to the Oromo People!
