State Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Taye Atske-selassie met with a Group from UK Royal Collage of Defense Studies (RCDS) on Tuesday.
The group was headed by Senior Directing Staff, the Royal Collage of Defense Studies, Mr. Peter Gooderham.
Ambassador Taye briefed the group on the Horn of Africa situation, particularly issues of regional peace and security.
He also briefed the group about Ethiopia’s aspiration to get a non-permanent seat at the United Nations Security Council with the intention of hoping to be the voice of Africa.
Acquiring a seat at UNSC will enable Ethiopia to create a better understanding at the UN on issues pertaining to the Horn of Africa and the African continent at large, the State Minster added.
