NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — Diplomatic sources say African Union-sponsored peace talks to resolve Ethiopia’s two year-long Tigray conflict will not take place as planned this weekend. They say logistical issues are partly to blame, and the format of the talks is not agreed upon. And a key facilitator, former Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, says he can’t attend. No new date has been set. It’s a further sign of the challenges in bringing the deeply suspicious warring sides to the table. Ethiopia’s government had accepted the invitation to talks in South Africa. The Tigray authorities said they were ready to send negotiators but sought clarity on the structure of the talks.
