Eritrean forces will withdraw from Tigray as soon as technical and military agreements are reached, Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Dina Mufti said on Tuesday in a briefing.

Dina’s remark came a day after U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken pressed Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed for troops from Eritrea involved in the Tigray conflict to be withdrawn “immediately, in full, and in a verifiable manner.”

“The technical and military agreements will determine how, when and how many Eritrean troops should withdraw from Tigray region at a time,” he said.

Early April, Dina was quoted as saying that Eritrean forces started withdrawing from the Tigray amid allegation that Eritrean troops committed human rights abuses including rape, looting resources.
