The Canadian Prime Minister also expressed interest to fully work with Ethiopia,added the source.

On October 26, Justin Trudeau twitted to congratulate Ethiopia’s first female president, Sahle-Work Zewde, and hail Ethiopia’s gender balance Cabinet, which is unprecedented in the continent of Africa. Weeks later, Rwanda took similar measure and introduced one too.


Trudeau reiterated his admiration of the gender balance cabinet during his phone conversation yesterday, according to EBC.

As well, he reportedly expressed admiration for the role that Ethiopia is playing in the continent following what he called change in Ethiopia, and that he intends to visit the country, added the report.

It is not, however, clear if Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed is invited to visit Canada.

Last week, he visited France and Germany with invitations from leaders of these countries, Emmanuel Macron and Angela Merkel respectively.
