He said to date, no data about “physical damage” inflicted on Japanese nationals in Ethiopia had been confirmed.

Ethiopia is currently facing an outbreak of violence linked to the advance of Tigray People’s Liberation Front rebels, who have been in a military conflict with the central government since 2020, toward the capital of Addis Ababa.

The situation prompted several countries to start evacuating their diplomatic missions from Ethiopia, while the government declared a six-month state of emergency in November.
