“Sometimes, like in a good marriage, we have to say what we are feeling at that moment,” he said.
Those remarks drew an angry response from the T.P.L.F., highlighting the great difficulty in maintaining good relations with both sides in the Ethiopian conflict.
spokesman, Getachew Reda, lashed out at the American characterization of his fighters as opportunists, and blamed any looting in Amhara on local forces.
“While we cannot vouch for every unacceptable behavior of off-grid fighters in such matters, we have evidence that such looting is mainly orchestrated by local individuals & groups,” Mr. Reda wrote.
The Ethiopian government says it needs help for 500,000 people in the Amhara and Afar regions, where fighting spread in July after Tigrayan fighters recaptured most of Tigray from government forces.
