1 Min Read

Following the peace agreement signed on 2 November between the Ethiopian government and the Tigrayan rebels who have been at war for two years, the head of the French diplomacy, Catherine Colonna, announced today on the television channel LCI that she would be going to Ethiopia with her German counterpart Annalena Baerbock “to consolidate the peace agreement” and to “provide support to the African Union”.

The peace agreement is an essential step towards ending the war in northern Ethiopia and providing for the disarmament of rebels, reopening access and communications in the Tigray region and re-establishing federal authority in that region.

During this visit, scheduled for 12 and 13 January, other issues will be discussed, such as food security, relations between Ethiopia and the European Union, and the EU and the African Union.
The French minister added that this visit reflects the healing of the relationship between France and Germany, especially with the approach of the anniversary of the 1963 Elysée Treaty.
