Addis Ababa, 18 May 20143 (WIC) – Djibouti’s president Ismail Omar Ghelle said Ethiopia and Djibouti are entirely intertwined that Ethiopia is Djibouti and Djibouti is Ethiopia, no difference at all.


Speaking at a ceremony organized at the Djibouti Port by Ethiopian port authority to receive nine new Ships (vessels) worth over $300 million from China, the president said that the new vessels will further help speed up the ongoing development endeavors in Ethiopia.


Most of Ethiopia’s exports and imports are transported through the Port of Djibouti, which is located 900km east of Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa.

“Djibouti benefits from Ethiopia’s rapid development and in turn Djibouti’s growth is an advantage to Ethiopia,” Djibouti President Ismail Omar Guelleh told the ceremony in Djibouti Port.

“The relation between Ethiopia and Djibouti is not limited to a government-to-government level but it has been intensified in people-to-people ties,” Ismail  said.

The Djibouti president added to say that relations between the two neighbors are boosting in different spheres, including the economic and social fields.
“Djibouti gives a port service to Ethiopia but it does not consider that it is giving the service to another country but regards it as it is doing it for itself,” Ismail concluded.

“We believe that Ethiopia is Djibouti and Djibouti is Ethiopia, no difference at all,” Ismail strongly said, going on to reiterate that the new Ships (vessels) will further help speed up the ongoing development endeavors in Ethiopia. (geeskaafrika.com)
