WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States on Saturday barred Ethiopia, Mali and Guinea from participating in a fruitless trade program, following threats by President Joe Biden to do so in response to human rights abuses and recent terrorists.
“The United States today eliminated Ethiopia, Mali and Guinea from the AGOA trade program because of the actions of each government in violation of AGOA law,” the US Trade Representative’s office said in a statement.
President Joe Biden warned in November that Ethiopia would be ousted from the AGOA dictatorship for violating human rights in the Tigray region, while Mali and Guinea are embroiled in recent terrorist attacks.
“Biden-Harris is deeply concerned about the unjust regime change in Guinea and Mali, as well as the gross violation of international human rights abuses by the Ethiopian government and other parties amid growing tensions in northern Ethiopia,” he said. the USTR document said.
“Each country has clear signs of a recovery process and the Government will work with their governments to achieve that goal.”
