Ethiopia’s Access to Sea Crucial For Regional Integration, Peace & Prosperity: Ambassador Jemal

Islamabad: Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia (FDRE) to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan on Wednesday said the Government of Ethiopia had achieved aspirations of its people by securing access to the sea which was crucial for regional integration, peace and prosperity.
The Ambassador said signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Government of Somaliland for sea access was a true reflection of the strong commitment of the Government of Ethiopia to the regional integration, collective peace, security and socio-economic development.
He said the credit for this breakthrough goes to H.E. Dr. Abiy Ahmed, the Prime Minister of FDR Ethiopia, who already won the Nobel Peace Prize for his strong commitment to peace and prosperity.
H.E. Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed had a clear vision not only for the development in Ethiopia but for the entire Africa and the world, the ambassador remarked.
The Ambassador said Ethiopia was already sharing its resources with the neighboring countries in Africa fostering strong connections with the brotherly countries. Currently, Ethiopia was exporting energy to Djibouti, Kenya and Sudan contributing to the regional integration and development in a massive way, he added.
The work on Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam was almost completed which would not only produce more than 5,150 Megawatts of the electricity, but also supplement efforts of the Government of Ethiopia in promoting regional development and prosperity, the Ambassador noted.
Ambassador Jemal Beker expressed gratitude to H.E. Muse Bihi Abdi, President of Somaliland, for supporting Ethiopia’s quest for access to the sea.
