Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed of Ethiopia visits Somalia

Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed of Ethiopia today met with Somalia President Mohamed Abdullahi “Farmajo” Mohamed. Below is the video of the two heads of states who met in Mogadishu:

“…There is no better country that benefits from stable Somalia than Ethiopia,” President said Mohamed Abdullahi.

After Somalia’s President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo hosted Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed for a meeting at the presidential palace in Mogadishu, the two leaders issued a joint statement of pledges to cooperate on everything from the development of infrastructure including roads linking the two countries to expanding visa services to promote cultural exchanges.

“The leaders further agreed to invest in logistics and service provision specially to leading ports in the continent that can serve both the Indian ocean and the Red Sea,” the statement read.

Landlocked Ethiopia, which has a population of 100 million, has been led since April by 41-year-old former intelligence officer Abiy, who has moved swiftly to assert his nation’s interests on the international stage.
