Ethiopia thanks regional body’s support to the peace agreement

Addis Ababa, Nov 30 (Prensa Latina) Ethiopia today thanked the Intergovernmental Authority on the Development in East Africa (IGAD) for its contribution to the signing of an agreement to restore peace in the north of the nation.

Our people appreciate the unwavering support of the IGAD states during the difficult days of negotiations, said Ethiopian Deputy Prime Minister Demeke Mekonnen at the 48th meeting of the Authority’s Council of Ministers.

According to the Foreign Affairs Ministry, Mekonnen stated in Khartoum, Sudan, that the peaceful resolution of the conflict between the federal government and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front respects national unity and integrity.

He also stressed that the pact signed in Pretoria, South Africa, and the talks to implement the cessation of hostilities held in Nairobi, Kenya, underpin the principle of applying African solutions to all the continent’s issues.

He also expressed his concern for the great impact of climate change in the region and urged the countries of the organization to work, together with international organizations, to avoid the crises it may cause, according to the Foreign Ministry’s notification.

To participate in the meeting, the Ethiopian Foreign Minister also traveled the day before to the Sudanese capital, where officials of the member states of the organization analyze the state of peace and security in their territories.

They will also discuss issues related to natural disasters, food security, humanitarian assistance, economic performance, global issues and a report on the organization’s institutional reforms.
