Ethiopia’s Minister of Peace Muferihat Kamil met with Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for the Bureau of Conflict and Stabilization Operations of the United States Robert J. Faucher today.
The two discussed and identified areas of support in positive peace-building in Ethiopia, said the Ministry of Peace on Facebook.
Muferihat on the occasion said “The Ministry’s priority is strengthening and deepening community dialogue at the grassroots level.”
“The Ministry is focusing on both peace-building and reforming the security sector” she added.
“With peace-building specifically, we are developing grassroots peace dialogue programs that engage the youth, including university students, and women. Three hundred thousand facilitators have been trained to lead these grassroots dialogue.”
“Ethiopia can be an example of how a country can pass through this transition through having a platform to navigate political differences” stated Robert Faucher.
