“Ethiopia’s Participation in BRICS Forums in Russia Bears Diplomatic Achievements

(June 20, 2024, Addis Ababa): Ethiopia’s active participation in the BRICS meeting Forums held in Russia and the corresponding bilateral discussions with member countries have yielded significant diplomatic achievements for the country.

The Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, H.E. Ambassador Nebiyu Tedla, held a press briefing today to discuss the country’s major diplomatic activities, with a particular focus on Ethiopia’s effective participation in the BRICS meetings.

Ethiopia was represented by a high-level delegation at the BRICS Foreign Ministers’ Forum, led by H.E Ambassador Taye Atske Selassie. Prior to the event, the Governor of the National Bank of Ethiopia and Ethiopia’s Sherpa to the BRICS H.E. Mamo Esmelalem Mihretu took part in the meeting of Sherpas and Sous sherpas of member countries.

Ambassador Taye emphasized key measures undertaken by the Government of Ethiopia aimed at enhancing the role of Ethiopia within BRICS and called for an increased constructive role of the BRICS member countries on pressing international issues. He also stressed the need for reforming UN, international financial and security institutions taking into consideration of the interests of developing countries.

The joint statement issued by the BRICS Foreign Ministers included Ethiopia’s perspectives, advocating for seamless integration of Ethiopia and other new members into BRICS and the New Development Bank. The statement also called for Security Council reforms and changes in international financial institutions to reflect current economic realities.

The BRICS Dialogue with Emerging Markets and Developing Countries, attended by the Foreign Ministers of BRICS members and non-BRICS developing countries emphasized strengthening partnerships for common development and peace.

Ambassador Taye also held separate bilateral engagements with the Foreign Ministers of eight BRICS and invited developing countries, including China, Brazil, South Africa, and Russia, securing political support for Ethiopia’s membership in the New Development Bank.

The spokesperson noted that Ethiopia’s engagement in the BRICS meetings reaffirmed its timely membership in the organization.
The Spokesperson also highlighted major bilateral engagements and economic diplomacy events over the past two weeks, including Ambassador Taye’s discussions with the President of the 78th General Assembly of the United Nations to strengthen support for peace and development in Ethiopia.

State Minister for Foreign Affairs, H.E. Ambassador Mesganu Arga, reached a consensus with Finland’s Minister of Foreign Trade and Development to bolster bilateral economic cooperation and agreed to hold political consultations soon.
Additionally, consultations with the Ambassadors of France, Austria, and Greece led to common understanding to enhance political consultation platforms. Discussions with Alison Blackburne, the UK Special Envoy for the Horn of Africa and the Red Sea, focused on increasing joint efforts for regional peace and stability. “

  1. Dr. Abiy Ahmed, known for being a genocider and career criminal, often boasts about his achievements in promoting peace and stability in East Africa. However, even in Ethiopia, there is insufficient evidence to support his allegations. On the contrary, Ethiopians are abandoning their homes, and those who stay describe their lives as terrible and extremely hostile, under constant fear and tribulation.

    TPLF leaders, who are career and chronic criminals, are permitting the slaughter and kidnapping of Tigrayan women and children.
    TPLF cadres have brutally killed many Tigrayan fighters during their 30-year struggle, particularly in the 1980s. TPLF members murdered their victims brutally for nothing more than minor personal disagreements and an intense desire for power and approval, exacerbated by their addictive, egotistical, and jealous personalities. TPLF leaders are considered chronic criminals because of their deep-rooted criminal impulses that span generations.
    Some Tigrayan websites do not report on victims of arbitrary killings or kidnappings committed by Tigrayans because they are preoccupied with commercializing a three-year-old war for personal gain. Freeloaders are also present in Tigray.

    “”The blue wall of silence [1], the blue code [2], and the blue shield [3] are terms used to denote the informal code of silence among police officers in the United States not to report on a colleague’s errors, misconducts, or crimes, especially as related to police brutality in the United States.”” The above text in quotes is ሰም ሲሆን ወርቁ ሙያዊ ሥነምግባር ያልተላበሱ ፖሊሶች በሙያ አጋሮቻቸው ላይ የምግባረ ብልሹነት ሪፖርት እንደማያቀርቡ ሁሉ ማፊያዎቹ የወያኔ አለቆችና ጀሌዎቻቸው በአጋሮቻቸው ወንጀለኞች የሚፈፀሙ ዘግናኝ ድርጊቶችን ከማደባበስ በቀር ለፍርድ እንዲቀርቡ አይፈልጉም፥፥ ህዝቡም እንዲያውቀው አይሰሩም፥፥፥ በማህበራዊ ሚዲያ ወንጀሎቻቸው ሲጋለጡ ብቻ ደፋ ቀና ሲሉ ይስተዋላሉ፥፥
    Some Tigrayans are little more than cannibals, and there is an idiom that refers to these cannibals’ terrible crimes, outlawing kills of the same group: “Apes shall not kill Apes.” However, Ethiopians and Tigrayans are killing one another. Many animals do not kill and consume their own kind, but humans do, and Tigrayans are no exception—killing children and girls, for example.

    It is true that Tigray is a land of heroes, but it can still be called a land of cannibals. Swallow it!! Can those chronic criminals just put themselves in the role of family members who lost their kids, wives, husbands, and relatives to killings preceding kidnappings or similar crimes for 3 seconds and attempt to make sense of it and utter what it feels like to lose your kids? 
    In Western countries, countless men are evicted from their houses, denied the opportunity to play with their children, and suffer in miserable lives as homless as a result of their misbehavior directed against their women, displaying authoiritian traits inherited from their home and culture.
    The most perplexing story is unfolding in Tigray, and this cannot be ignored by claiming, “”There are crooks everywhere in the world; Tigray is not an exception, etc.”; rather, local authorities in Tigray should act accordingly and safeguard their own people, and this timely action of the authorities will save the next victims. These crimes have nothing to do with economic problems, food shortages, unemployment, etc., but are manifestations of an innate propensity for crimes. Many are biting their tongues, and these endless reports of killings have left them broken-hearted. May her soul rest in peace, and may comfort extend to her family and friends.

    This is not about division but stems from frustration due to fake ethnic sentiment serving only for violence and civil war.

  2. State authorities and religious leaders should take initiatives to educate Ethiopian youth and their families on the serious consequences of kidnapping and abducting women and girls for marital purposes, ransom, compensation, or any other malevolent aim. If not, the state should impose severe judicial punishments, including monetary fines and imprisonment. There are relatively credible norms that Ethiopians should absorb from industrialized nations, such as the rights of women and girls, while rejecting irreligious and unbiblical western cultures imposed under the so-called terrible Samoa agreement.
    “”The “Samoa Agreement” signed on 15th November 2023 serves as the new legal framework for EU relations with 79 African, Caribbean and Pacific countries, including 48 African countries, 16 countries from the Caribbean and 15 Pacific countries, around 2 billion people.””copied from eeasDOTeuropaDOTeu
