Annual Retreat of Mission Leaders and Senior Officials Kicks Off in Sululta at AFLEX

The annual performance evaluation and planning retreat of senior officials of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ethiopia kicks off in Sululta today (December 26) at the African Leadership Excellence Academy.
Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, H.E. Demeke Mekonnen, delivered opening remarks, highlighting the internal and external challenges that tested Ethiopia’s diplomacy.
He cited the fighting in the country’s north, negotiations on the construction and filling of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, and Ethiopia-Sudan border conflicts as illustrations.


“Our ambassadors and diplomats deserve praise,” he said, “since they were effective in preserving Ethiopia’s interests, living up to Ethiopians’ aspirations and the country’s rich heritage.”
Because many issues do not receive definitive resolution in the diplomatic arena, and because world geopolitics is unpredictable, he said Ethiopian diplomats should operate proactively and in accordance with the Ministry’s reengagement strategy objectives.
H.E. Ambassador Birtukan Ayano, State Minister of Foreign Affairs, briefed the media on the retreat’s main goals at Sululta.
According to Ambassador Birtukan, the ambassadors will reflect on the challenges of 2022 and the solutions given to them, besides laying out the core issues of engagement in the upcoming year.
She also mentioned the visits last week to over 10 institutions in Addis Ababa and Bishoftu that were designed to show the fruits of the reform process and reveal what is expected of the ambassadors in augmenting the capacity of some of the institutions.
The opening program of the retreat, which will be held for two consecutive weeks, was attended by State Ministers of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, including H.E. Ambassador Tesfaye Yilma, Heads and Deputy Heads of Missions, Directorate Generals, and leadership of institutions affiliated with the Ministry.

DPM and FM Demeke Mekonnen call for addressing the root causes of illegal migration

Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, H.E. Demeke Mekonnen, called on Ethiopians to tackle the challenges of human trafficking by addressing its root causes.
He said many Ethiopians became victims of human traffickers, drawn by the success stories of a few individuals that could not represent the whole picture of migration and its perils.


The Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister was addressing a forum that is being held in Hosanna City under the theme, “Let’s prevent human trafficking together through strong community participation.”
According to Mr. Demeke, human trafficking and illegal migration have been the challenges of the country, in addition to the conflict in the north.
The recent tragedies that befall our citizens in Malawi and Zambia demonstrate how serious the problem is, he said.
In just one year, Mr. Demeke said, more than 100,000 illegal migrants were repatriated, while more than 5,000 prisoners still remain in Tanzania.
Furthermore, he stated that the forum is being held in Hosanna because, according to studies, it is one of the areas that is highly affected by human trafficking in the country.
Awareness campaigns will be strengthened in the northeastern parts of the country, where the problem is also prominent, he added.
President of the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples regional state, H.E. Mr. Ristu Yerdaw, Minister of Women and Social Affairs, H.E. Ergoge Tesfaye, and Minister of Justice, Mr. Gedion Timothewos, also gave opening remarks. Other ministers and ambassadors were also present at the forum.
