Addis Ababa, February 22, 2024 (FBC) – The Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ethiopia, Ambassador Meles Alem (PhD) delivered the weekly press briefing of the Ministry today.

The ambassador’s briefing focused on the fruits of bilateral engagements with various countries held on the margins of the recently concluded AU Summit in Addis Ababa.

Ambassador Meles mentioned the bilateral agreements reached with South Africa, Angola and Brazil, which elevate Ethiopia’s current relations with the stated countries.

According to Ambassador Meles, the cooperation agreements, particularly with South Africa and Brazil, will positively impact Ethiopia’s standing in BRICS.

The Memoranda of Understanding inked during this week’s Ethio-Kenya Joint Ministerial Commission meeting serve as an example of the two countries growing desire to fortify their already strong relations, the ambassador said.

The Spokesperson expressed gratitude for Kenya’s Government’s decision to stop charging Ethiopian nationals for Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA).

The ambassador clarifies that while Ethiopians won’t have to pay for their visas or any other associated fees, they still need to fill out an online Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) form before their arrival.
