Minister of State for Industry of Ethiopia Tarekegn Bululta said it was the right decision for his government to pursue the policy of acknowledging the essence and existence of the Republic of Somaliland.

The Minister of State for Industry of Ethiopia thanked the two governments of Somaliland and Ethiopia and the people of both countries for striking the accord of the recent historic MoU agreement initially signed on the first day of the first month of this year.

The sentiments were contained in a short text tweeted on his site X account, which was formerly known as Twitter, which further noted  that Ethiopia’s dream of having an sea-route opening was to be realized at last.

The Minister pointed out that the decision taken by his government to recognizing the Republic of Somaliland was the right decision.

On the other hand, the Ethiopian embassies in the world have in the last few days published widely on their websites sentiments encouraging the memorandum of understanding between Somaliland and Ethiopia signed emphasizing that Ethiopia is serious about the implementation of the agreement.

“The Red Sea region has great strategic importance, and Ethiopia, which has both a large land area and population, has taken proactive measures by organizing elaborate discussions to research comprehensive remedies”, a statement posted by the Ethiopian Embassy in Uganda on Twitter on Wednesday outlined.

A similar tweet from its Qatar embassy highlighting the brighter future the MoU portends published, “The agreement between Prime Minister Abiy and Somaliland regarding access to the port is a major change in the Ethiopian economy. His strategic thinking is one that will ensure a bright future for the nation.”
