Ethiopia’s government accepted an invitation by the African Union to talks about ending the nation’s two-year civil war.

The continental body invited Ethiopia’s government and dissident Tigray fighters to talks in South Africa scheduled for Oct. 8, according to a copy of the letter seen by Bloomberg that was verified by an African Union official. South African Department of International Relations and Cooperation spokesman Clayson Monyela didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment sent by text message.
