Message of Congratulations from Prime Minister Abe on the Occasion of the Awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to Prime Minister Abiy of Ethiopia
October 11, 2019
I would like to express my sincere congratulations to H.E. Dr. Abiy Ahmed Ali, Prime Minister of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia for his winning of the Nobel Peace Prize.
Since Prime Minister Abiy assumed the office of the Prime Minister last year, I have been deeply impressed by his outstanding leadership in such efforts as the re-establishment of diplomatic relation with Eritrea after 20 years of severance, mediation in the peace processes in South Sudan and in Sudan, as well as his domestic reform efforts in Ethiopia.
Japan intends to continuously support the efforts made by Prime Minister Abiy in promoting peace and stability both at home and abroad.
