Peace is the foundation of everything, and if there is peace the elderly and children are cared for, he said, adding that all social and economic developments will be there and politics will be calm.

Furthermore, we discussed the work we can do together to build a fair and just Ethiopia that is suitable for all of us by putting the interest of the people at the center and ensuring lasting peace in the country.
“We have seen positive things related to the implementation of the peace agreement and issues that are missing and need to be addressed in the future,” he stated.
Adam added that issues that need to be addressed have been identified on our part to bring the agreement into full implementation and similar things are underway on the side of TPLF.
“The government has shown huge commitment to the implementation of the agreement so far. As the government, we have been doing what we should do in accordance with the agreement. We will continue to strengthen this.”
