The outgoing president Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo and a delegation led by him arrived in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, where they were warmly welcomed.
President Farmajo’s delegation was welcomed at Bole International Airport in Addis Ababa by Ethiopian Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Ms. Burtukan, Ethiopian Minister of Finance and other government officials.
Farmajo was one of the leaders invited to the inauguration of Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, whose party won the June election.
During his stay in Addis Ababa, President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo will hold talks with other leaders attending the inauguration of Prime Minister Abi Ahmed.
Farmajo’s trip to Addis Ababa will be his first overseas trip since April 25th, when unrest and clashes in Mogadishu forced him to withdraw from a two-year extension.
