Toronto – Heiko Nitzschke, Germany’s Special Envoy to the Horn of Africa, is in Ethiopia.  On Tuesday, he met with Ambassador Mesganu Arega, State Minister in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ethiopia. 

No detailed information is provided by the Ministry as to what the focus of Heiko Nitzschke, who was appointed to the position in June 2023 as Germany’s first envoy to the Horn, is.

“They discussed issues concerning the Horn of Africa, regional matters of mutual interest, and Ethiopia’s significant role in the region,” the Ministry said in a brief update.
