Statement on use of a UN plate number

19 June 2021

"The United Nations plays a major role in providing international assistance to electoral processes at the request of Member States. The UN is carrying out its assistance in an objective, impartial, neutral and independent manner, with due respect for sovereignty and is not involved in any partisan political actions, including election campaigning in Ethiopia.

We are aware of the images circulating on social media of a vehicle used by Government officials with a UN plate number. We are currently investigating this issue internally."
