Ambassador Teshome also stressed that the government is determined to strengthen civic organizations and to improve the electoral law and respond to issues of good governance, unemployment among the youth, and other development concerns voiced by the public.

According to him, some extremist members of the Diaspora in Europe are working day and night to disrupt the peace in Ethiopia by exploiting grievances of the public to disintegrate the country.

These forces have been smearing the image of the country by disseminating false information and organizing recurrent demonstrations in front of the European parliament, he added.

He thanked the demonstrators for exposing the extremists by holding demonstrations and asked them to intensify the cooperation based on principle with their sincere fellow citizens.
