Everyone knows that Cubans played a key role, including sacrifices, to ensure Ethiopia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity in the face of Somalia’s invasion that led to the so-called Ogaden War (1977-1978), the diplomat recalled in statements to Prensa Latina.
‘We will never forget that help. Every time we celebrate the victory of Karamara, we all remember Cuba’, stressed Teshone, who is in Havana on a working visit, because since the outbreak of the conflict in Tigray, Ethiopia was forced to temporarily close many embassies that it attends to from Addis Ababa.
In addition, the Cubans have contributed to our development, of the growth of agriculture by helping us to create the Institute of Animal Health, to build small dams, and to train human resources.
Regarding the reopening of the Embassy in Havana, the ambassador assured that when progress is made in the peace process, which will be reflected in an improvement of the economy, Ethiopia’s diplomatic venue in Cuba will be the first to be reopened.
