APO News from Africa:
The Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Mario Giro, accompanied by Italian Ambassador Samuela Isopi, will be on mission in Chad from 18 to 21 April.
In the course of the visit, Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister Giro met with the President of Chad, Idriss Déby and with Foreign Minister Hissein Brahim Taha, highlighting the fact that Chad needs international support in order to face up to the continuous attacks of Boko Haram terrorists, more effectively control the transit of migration flows heading towards the Mediterranean and tackle the environmental and humanitarian crisis that affects the Chad Basin, where nearly 50,000 people have been struck by the famine caused by the lake’s lowering water level. Within this context, Deputy Minister Giro specified that Chad is Italy’s natural interlocutor in guaranteeing the security of the Sahel region, of the Mediterranean and ultimately of Europe, underscoring Italy’s commitment at the Oslo Conference to support the Country with 30 million euros over a period of 3 years.

The British Embassy in Addis Ababa marked Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s 91st birthday on 18 April 2017. The celebration was attended by high level government and military officials, the diplomatic community and friends of the British Embassy.
The event was colourfully celebrated with special guest Lemn Sisay – the celebrated British poet, who has Ethiopian heritage as well as various activities including a photographic exhibition of key iconic and candid moments in the UK-Ethiopia relationship and an art exhibition by three Ethiopian artists (Yonatan Wondwossen, Wondewossen Melakeselam and Yared Oliveli).
Ambassador Susanna Moorehead said: “Both our countries have agreed an innovative jobs compact that will create jobs for Ethiopians and for vulnerable refugees who might otherwise be tempted to put their lives in the hands of people traffickers and head for Europe. We have worked together to educate Ethiopian children, to provide healthcare and to respond to the drought that has hit the East African region for the second year in a row. We have also worked together to improve the quality of global peacekeeping, through the courses that are run here at the Ethiopian Peace Support Training Centre and through our co-operation in the run up to Ethiopia joining the UN Security Council – for which we offer our congratulations and support.”
“As a friend of Ethiopia and the Ethiopian people, we want to see this country be stable in order to thrive, both today and the long term. We continue to offer our support.”
Speaking about the African Union, Ambassador Moorehead said: “We wish the new commission every success and look forward to working with it and with Member States on the challenges and opportunities in Africa today –especially in the areas of peace and security, trade and migration.”
Ambassador Susanna extended her sincere gratitude to Globeleq, leading innovators and investors in power production in Africa, for being a Gold sponsor. Corbetti, Unilever, Diageo being Silver sponsors and Cluff Geothermal, KPMG and Dashen brewery for being bronze sponsors of the event.
