Prime minister of Ethiopia Abiy Ahmed, praises the current political change in neighboring state, Sudan.
In a Message posted on the official Facebook page of PM office, to the People of Sudan, Abiy Ahmed said that
“I would like to take this opportunity to appreciate the people of Sudan for your resilience in leading change Within your country. I also appreciate you for being committed to engaging peacefully in this process. Your efforts to voice your demands in a responsible manner is a reflection of your aspirations for a strengthened and democratic Sudan.”
I would also like to express my admiration of the military council overseeing the transition, for its efforts in heeding the call of the Sudanese people. This is a testament to the importance of listening to your people closely while working together for a common goal. The initiative to also hold inclusive discussions with competing political parties in Sudan is also noteworthy. I truly believe it is a critical time to work together towards one united Sudan without any room for divisions among yourselves, he said in his message.
Extending the practice of inclusive dialogue with all other stakeholders will facilitate the path to a strengthened, united and democratic Sudan. Through continuous dialogue, differing ideas can be narrowed down towards one Sudan, one people, all working towards a common direction. Differences should only be in ideas and not in administration, reads the message.
It is important to also ensure that any differences in ideas that arise are dealt with peacefully and patiently to come towards mutual understanding and alignment.
Finally, Abiy has granted that Ethiopia is always with the people of Sudan.
