Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed has received the U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe at his office today.
“I welcome Senator Jim Inhofe, a friend to Ethiopians, to his second home Ethiopia” the Premier said on Facebook. The two are expected to hold discussions on various issues regarding latest developments in Ethiopia.
It is to be recalled that Jim Inhofe opposed the visa restrictions imposed on Ethiopia by the Biden Administration last week.
He tweeted that “Ethiopia needs our support as they work to end the sectarian violence.”
Jim Inhofe, a Senator from Oklahoma, is in complete opposition against the U.S decision to impose visa restrictions on Ethiopians on the top of economic and security assistance.
“I oppose the heavy-handed visa restrictions from the Biden Administration. Ethiopia needs our support as they work to end the sectarian violence. Actions like this don’t help us get closer to a peaceful resolution,” the Senator twitted.
