Historic Lalibela trip, deals signed in Addis Ababa

Written by on March 13, 2019

Ethiopia’s prime minister, Abiy Ahmed received French president Emmanuel Macron at the site of the buried churches of Lalibela, Ethiopia, a threatened World Heritage site that France wants to help preserve.

As he promised the Ethiopian Prime Minister in October, Macron is expected to announce a Franco-Ethiopian agreement on a new system to protect these monuments threatened by erosion.

Back in Addis Ababa, a number of deals were penned by sector ministers as Abiy and Macron looked on. The two also addressed a joint press conference according to the Premier’s office.

Macron will be hosted to a state dinner in Addis Ababa, a country mourning the crash on Sunday of an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing, which killed 157 people, including 9 French.

    A nice post. My partner and I particularly had trouble understanding some points you mentioned in your write-up. I later realized what you were saying after I had understood some of your linked posts on this site. Important things have changed greatly together with the advent of internet, online community, and mobile phone SMSing. Thanks for getting the whole thing to my personal understanding.
