Ethiopian PM: Terrorism and climate change are a common fight
Israeli President Reuven Rivlin on Monday morning met Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Dessalegn at the President's Residence in Jerusalem.
“Your connection with Jerusalem is something that goes to the roots of the Bible, and the connection between our people is not a matter of years, it is a matter of centuries, back to the visit of the Queen of Sheba,” Rivlin said. “We know you attended the funeral of the late Shimon Peres and we remember that and appreciate it very much.”
“We are very anxious to get back to the connection that we have had with Africa, and we ask you to be our sponsors in Africa in order to let us be once again able to attend all the meetings and conferences of Africa, because when we are looking to the future, and to the next decade, we know that Africa is the place.
