Speech of H.E. General Salva Kiir Mayardit THE PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF SOUTH SUDAN AT A STATE DINNER WITH ETHIOPIAN PRIME MINISTER H.E. Hailemariam Dessalegn – ADDIS ABABA, February 24, 2017.
February 26, 2017 (SSB) — Your Excellency, Ato Haile Merriam Desalegn, Prime Minister of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, Hon Ministers, Distinguished ladies and gentlemen.
Please allow me to extend my warm deep appreciation and gratitude for the kind invitation for me and my delegation to visit Ethiopia and hold talks with the leadership of this country.
The 8 Agreements or/and Memoranda of Understanding which we signed this morning will go a long way in further strengthening our bilateral relations. These relations are already excellent but our ambition is to take them to a level where the ordinary citizens in our two sisterly countries will feel and practically benefit from the improvement of our two economies and thus lift the standard of livelihood of our people.
