The Ethiopian delegation then led by the Deputy Prime Minister, Demeke Mekonnen Hassen met Uganda’s president, Yoweri Museveni as they sought to end the Tigray crisis.
“Our discussion focused on the peace and security issues affecting Ethiopia currently. Being one of the oldest countries that was not colonized in Africa, Ethiopia is the pride of the continent. Africa’s problem is that we never discuss ideology, focusing so much on diplomacy. I totally disagree with politics that focus on ethnic federalism. We must emphasize the issue of oneness and common interests because it is the only way we can prosper,” Mr. Museveni posted on his social media platforms.
