For the Horn and Beyond

Foreign Affairs Minister Worqneh Gebeyehu (PhD), foreground, met his counterparts, Djibouti’s Mahmoud Ali Youssouf (far left) and Eritrea’s Osman Saleh Mohammed (centre-left), last week at Ethiopia’s Mission in New York.

The trio represent countries in the region that had been at odds for years but have begun improving relations in recent months. The foreign ministers are credited with being instrumental in achieving peace in the Horn of Africa.

Worqneh also met with French President Emmanuel Macron during the 73rd session of the United Nation’s General Assembly. Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed (PhD), who cancelled his highly anticipated attendance at the last minute, is scheduled to visit France next year upon the invitation of President Macron. The French leader was the first head of state from Europe to congratulate him on his assumption of office almost six months ago.

The 73rd UN General Assembly started on September 18, 2018. The first assembly convened in London in 1946.
