Prime Minister Hailemariam in Qatar on official visit

(EBC; November 13, 2017) - Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn arrived in Doha on Monday on an official visit to Qatar.

The Premier's visit is aimed at discussing the implementation of cooperation agreements signed recently between Ethiopia and Qatar, thereby boosting bilateral contact and maximizing mutual benefits.

The two countries had signed the agreements last April in Addis Ababa, during the visit of a high-level Qatari government delegation, headed by His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, Emir of the State of Qatar.

On the occasion, the two sides had signed 11 agreements and memoranda of understanding (MoU), to strengthen their bilateral relations.
