Militants and world powers are a threat to the Horn of Africa

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Ethiopian Prime Minister Abi Ahmed said on Tuesday after receiving the Nobel Peace Prize for a peace deal with Eritrea that both militant groups and global military forces pose a threat to peace and stability in the Horn of Africa.

My father won the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize in October for his peace efforts and ended two decades of hostility with Eritrea.

In a speech delivered at the award ceremony in Oslo in the presence of great personalities, including the Norwegian King Harald V, my father praised the goodwill of Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki and described the two countries’ commitment to peace as “solid”.

But my father, 43, who is Africa’s youngest leader, also spoke about the dangers facing the region. “The world’s major military powers are expanding their military presence in the region,” he said, without mentioning countries or groups by name. Terrorist and extremist groups are also seeking a foothold.”
