The Ethiopian Peacekeeping Force is doing its best level to maintain peace in the area in such away its activities could suffice the interests of both Sudans. This is to help the Sudanese people live peacefully and work against poverty. In all cases of it sacrifices, Ethiopia aimed to alleviate poverty avoiding obstacles in connection to peace.  Ethiopia is committed to bring an enduring peace in the region. It recognizes the interconnection between peace and development. That is why it has been exerting tremendous efforts and sacrificing a lot to ascertain peace in the entire continent.
