Addis Ababa — Foreign Minister Workneh Gebeyehu urged newly appointed ambassadors to be sharp towards global trends, according to Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

During the panel discussion, Workneh also shed light on the changing dynamics of international affairs and diplomacy in the 21st century and its significant impacts on regional, geopolitical and global developments.
“Given the fast changing global trends, our diplomatic posture and stamina should be proactive, robust and multidirectional, fueling our core principles of mutual respect, mutual benefits and reciprocal trust as we navigate a highly unpredictable, uncertain global system,” the minister noted.
