Ethiopia’s efforts to find African solutions for African problems and make Africa’s voice heard globally have earned admiration from Africans, Ethiopia’s Government Communication Affairs Office (GCAO) has said.

In its weekly statement sent to FBC, the office said Ethiopia has continued exerting maximum efforts to maintain peace and stability as well as to create strong economic integration in Africa on the basis of mutual benefit.

The country’s effort to strengthen its relations with the neighboring countries through power interconnectivity, road and railway lines in particular, have borne encouraging results and is also growing from time to time.

The statement further said that the country is creating new and historical relations with the lower Nile riparian countries.

In order to cement Ethiopia’s existing good ties with east African countries, reciprocal visits by leaders have continued, it said, citing the recent visit paid by Djibouti and Sudanese presidents to Ethiopia and PM Hailemariam Desalegn’s visits to Zambia and Tanzania as cases in point.

The statement said the country will enhance its ongoing diplomatic efforts to maintain peace, bring development as well as to create regional and continental economic integration.
