Becoming the first leader from West Africa to conduct an official visit to Ethiopia since Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed (PhD) took office, Alfa Condé, President of Guinea, arrived in Addis Ababa in the middle of the week. Abiy received Condé at his newly refurbished office where Abiy insisted the two heads of state should pose for a photo next to a model Ethiopian Airlines plane named after the PM. During his early arrival to attend the African Union’s 32nd ordinary summit, Condé met and discussed with officials. He and the Prime Minister Abiy agreed to form bilateral cooperation in areas of security, air transport, science and education, health and tourism.
