FM Demeke Mekonnen Says Africa Is Capable of being Key Player in Multilateral World Order

Ethiopian Foreign Minister, Demeke Mekonnen claims that despite numerous challenges, Africa is rising and will be able to play an important role in the world as multilateral players and middle powers replace the unipolar world order.

Demeke made the remarks during a discussion moderated by the World Economic Forum's Centre for Regions, Trade, and Geopolitics on the role of middle powers in the current world order, in which multiple actors and middle powers appear to have replaced the unipolar order.

He stated that the engagement of the world's middle powers is becoming a reality as changes in security, economy, and digital capabilities are about to create a multipolar international order in place of the unipolar world.

He stated that it is time for a just multipolar global order in which players are expected to address both the problems of deprived societies and the structural development of developing countries.

Regarding Ethiopia’s membership of the BRICS, the foreign minister once again made it clear that Ethiopia joined the bloc because the country regards it as an ideal partnership for securing more robust development-focused financing and investment.

Joining BRICS is not about picking sides, as BRICS is not against any single country or grouping, he explained, adding that BRICS aspires to a fairer international system – a position which Ethiopia supports.
