Addis Ababa, June 29, 2022 (FBC) – Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed called on the Sudanese people to avoid enmity with Ethiopia and pursue peaceful mechanism to address the situation between the two countries.
“The two peoples of Sudan and Ethiopia are brothers. Undoubtedly, there are many problems between Sudan and Ethiopia. We must intensify and cooperate in confronting and solving these dilemmas.

“We have to control our selves; And to be restrained. This is for the sake of our common interests and the principles of good neighborliness. There should be no enmities between us,”
The Premier underlined that the people of Ethiopia and Sudan must be partners in development, and rise together.
“We have all respect for the brotherly Sudanese people. We believe that Sudan and Ethiopia are capable of solving all the problems and difficulties they face in the spirit of lasting brotherhood and good neighborliness,” he added.
