War broke out in November between Ethiopian troops and the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF), which controls the region.
On Thursday, the U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called for an immediate ceasefire and unrestricted aid access in Tigray.
Abiy's spokesperson told a news conference last week that 277 trucks of aid have entered Tigray, without specify the time period in which the trucks entered.
