2023 New Year’s Message from Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister of #Ethiopia, H.E. Demeke Mekonnen

Dear members of the diplomatic community, Representatives of regional and international organizations based in Addis Ababa,
All people who celebrate the New Year according to the Gregorian calendar,
We are on the eve of welcoming a new year and bidding farewell to 2022.
I wish you and your families a very happy new year! Best wishes for 2023!
As you are aware, Ethiopia has encountered numerous internal and external challenges in the year 2022. The conflict in the northern part of my country was one of the gravest challenges.
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all parties that helped us forge a peace deal that all Ethiopians deserved.
I sincerely believe that you will continue to stand with us in implementing the peace agreement which is an outcome of the maxim, “African Solutions to African Problems”, and support the reconstruction and rehabilitation efforts in the conflict affected areas.
Despite the hurdles we faced, our country was able to achieve outstanding outcomes that paved the way for Ethiopians to enjoy a bright future.
Ethiopia welcomes the New Year with the hope of sharing our optimism for a better tomorrow with you all. We aspire to see a better 2023 with a strengthened relationship with our partners.
Let us march together in the spirit of the New Year to a prosperous future. Happy New Year!
