WASHINGTON – U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Friday he is very concerned about the potential for Ethiopia to “implode” amid an escalating conflict there.

A durable political resolution to the differences that have emerged in Ethiopia in the past year is “not only still possible, but necessary,” Blinken told reporters at the State Department.
