Ethiopia, German MPs discuss ways of strengthening ties and cooperation

Addis Ababa, March 7 2024 (FBC) – Ethiopian and German parliamentarians have discussed on ways of enhancing bilateral relations during a meeting held in Addis Ababa on Wednesday.

Chairman of the Foreign Affairs and Peace Standing Committee of the House of People’s Representatives of Ethiopia, Dima Nego (PhD) and German Federal Parliament’s (Bundestag) Foreign Affairs Committee delegation head Stefan Keuter deliberated on issues of mutual concern.

Dima emphasized on the occasion the importance of further solidifying parliamentary connections and bilateral relations between the two countries.

Ethiopia is on the path of ensuring peace and stability through the implementation of the Pretoria Agreement and other mechanism put in place that are believed to contribute to the peace and stability in the region, Dima noted.

Moreover, Dima said that Ethiopia needs German investment and support in productive sectors, including agriculture, industry, mining and energy.

He expressed his belief that the investment and cooperation and support between the countries would be beneficial both for Ethiopia and Germany.

“We believe Germany can also benefit if it invests in these areas,” Dima stated.

Emphasizing the role Ethiopia plays in Africa as host of the African Union and managing Africa’s best airline, the German delegation head said “we are here to get to know something about the cooperation between our countries and to listen to you what you think is important in our cooperation, what can be done, what are your problems. We can perhaps support and this is why we are here.”

Keuter further expressed his belief that Ethiopia will achieve its goals.

The discussion between the parliamentarians generally focused on strengthening bilateral cooperation and addressing issues of shared interest in both Ethiopia and the broader region.
