||<p>The Secretary of State is very concerned about the situation of Internally Displaced
People in Ethiopia including Gedeo and West Guji, and of reports of involuntary returns.
Our Ambassador and senior DFID officials have raised this with the Deputy Prime Minister
and Minister of Peace, that all IDP returns must be voluntary, safe and sustainable.
The UK is currently supporting humanitarian agencies in Ethiopia to respond to the
needs of IDPs and host communities affected by this crisis.</p>
