“Canada is very concerned by the faster-deteriorating security situation in Ethiopia,” Minister said.

“From November 18, we have been asking Canadians to avoid travel to Ethiopia. We are asking Canadians who are there to leave immediately if it is safe to do so. Should the situation continue to worsen, the availability of commercial flights could soon become very limited.”
