Addis Ababa, Ethiopia ( ENA + DIPLOMAT.SO) – Ethiopia’s State Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Taye Atske-Selassie summoned Egyptian Ambassador to Ethiopia, Aboubakr Hefny on Wednesday in connection with the current situation in Ethiopia, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.

Spokesperson of the Ministry Tewolde Mulugeta told ENA that the Minister summoned the Ambassador to discuss issues related to the current situation in Ethiopia and of relations between the two countries.

The two sides further exchanged views on issues related to reports by some Egyptian media outlets, the Spokesperson said.

Ethiopia and Egypt are trying to improve diplomatic and economic relations after controversy over Ethiopia’s dam on River Nile. Discussions to strengthen ties have been carried out at the level of higher officials that includes exchange of public diplomacy groups.

Leaders of the two nations, Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi and Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn, met at an African Union summit in Malabo in June 2014, where they embarked on an initiative to ease tensions and further enhance cooperation in other areas.

An Egyptian delegation, led by Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry, was also in Addis Ababa November 2014 to cement relationships.

Despite efforts at government levels to strengthen ties, some Egyptian media outlets are providing inaccurate reports regarding Ethiopia’s Renaissance Dam that might affect the relationship between the two countries.
