Addis Ababa, August 2, 2022(Walta) – Welcoming the newly appointed Algerian Ambassador to Djibouti today Irki Mohamed, Ambassador Berhanu Tsegaye said Ethiopia attaches high importance to its relations with Algeria.
The relations between the two sisterly countries date back even before Algeria’s independence in 1962, in their collective quest for anti-colonial struggle, noted Ambassador Berhanu. Since then, he added, they have enjoyed long-standing relations as well as strategic cooperations both on bilateral and multilateral arrays.
The Ambassador praised Algeria for the constructive role it played during the Ethio-Eritrea Peace Agreement two decades ago, which became a reality when Prime Minister Abiy & President Esayas signed a peace deal that charted a new hope in the Horn.
The Ambassador also briefed his Algerian counterpart on his government’s unwavering commitments to making sure all essential goods & services have reached to Tigray Region. Ethiopia’s principled positions on GERD based on fairness & equity were also discussed at length between the two Ambassadors.
