The Federal Republic of Germany expressed its interest in strengthening relation with Ethiopia. It was the country’s president, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, who talked about it when he received the credential of newly appointed Ethiopian Ambassador to Germany, H.E. Ambassador Mulu Solomon Bezuneh, on June 11.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ethiopia reported that Ambassador Mulu on her part expressed that she will work to further strengthen the excellent relationship between the two countries. She also briefed Frank-Walter Steinmeier about the ongoing reform in Ethiopia and its importance in terms of bringing about “peace and stability” in the Horn of Africa.

Mr. Frank-Walter Steinmeier said that his country would provide Ambassador Mulu ” assistance to accomplish her ambassadorial duties during her tenure in Germany,” as reported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ethiopia.

Germany is one of the donor countries to Ethiopia and has development programs in the areas of vocational education, food security and agriculture, and conservation and sustainable use of natural resources.

The two countries started diplomatic relation as early as 1905 during Emperor Menelik II era.

  1. Excellent news!!! Music to my ears!!! How about opening factories by moving them from Asia to the old country? There are many factories that had moved out of Germany during the last 35 or so years just like from here, USA. For prohibitive labor and overheads they will never return to Germany. The old country with all its current unemployed educated youth including engineers, it is like diamond in the rough waiting to be cut and buffed.
