The Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has left here on Wednesday to Guinea on an official visit that envisaged to spur bilateral ties among the two countries.
The Ethiopian Prime Minister’s Office, in a statement issued on Wednesday, revealed that Ahmed has left for Conakry, capital of Guinea for an official state visit that aims to bolster bilateral relations between Guinea and Ethiopia.
“The visit will contribute to strengthening relations between the two countries,” the statement read, as it emphasized that Ahmed’s visit to Guinea came a year after the Guinean President Alpha Conde made an official state visit to the East African country in February last year.
The two countries, as part of Conde’s visit to Ethiopia last year, had signed cooperation agreements that envisaged bolstering the two countries’ ties across various sectors, with a particular emphasis on boosting cooperation in education, health, financial management, agriculture, culture as well as tourism.
In addition, the Ethiopian premier is also expected to pay an official visit to South Africa later this week, slated from January 11 to 12, according to state-affiliated Fana Broadcasting Corporate (FBC).
Ahmed’s visit to South Africa, which is expected to feature meetings with South African officials as well as Ethiopian nationals residing in the country, aims to strengthen the diplomatic relations between the two countries and elevate their ties to a strategic level, FBC reported on Wednesday.
