Genuine global partnership critical to address pressing transnational issues – FM Taye

Addis Ababa, June 11, 2024 (FBC) – Foreign Minister of Ethiopia, Ambassador Taye Atske-Selassie, stated that renewed and genuine global partnership is critical to address pressing transnational issues.

FM Taye made these remarks at the BRICS Ministers of Foreign Affairs and International Relations meeting, which is taking place in Nizhny Novgorod city, the Russian Federation, from 10-11 June 2024. The Foreign Minister, alongside his delegation, is participating in Nizhny Novgorod.

Addressing the meeting, Foreign Minister Taye emphasized that Ethiopia greatly values its BRICS membership. He highlighted the various measures Ethiopia has taken to enhance its active role in the BRICS family in line with its national development priorities.

Taye also stated that as the most pressing transnational issues cannot be addressed by any single institutions alone, renewed and genuine global partnership is not a choice but a necessity. The importance of promoting collective solutions rooted in effective multilateralism and putting development at the center of the global discourse were given emphasis.

The Minister further stressed the urgent need to retool multilateral institutions, and an increased development financing and debt relief, in order to address and accommodate the legitimate interests of developing countries.

He also reaffirmed Ethiopia’s resolve to the collective pursuit of peace and progress, inclusive and sustainable development, as well as effective multilateralism.
