UN SECY-GEN BEMOANS WORLD’S TRUST DEFIFIT DISORDER BUT HAILS WIND OF HOPE IN ETHIOPIA, ERITREA

UNITED NATIONS– Despite bemoaning the world’s growing “trust deficit disorder”, in his address to the United Nations General Assembly here Tuesday, UN Secretary-General Antonio Gutrerrs, has hailed the “wind of hope and peace” which is being blown to the world as Ethiopia and Eritrea, and soon after Eritrea and Djibouti, close their chapter of wars and open a new era of hope.

In his opening remark at the 73rd United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), the Secretary-General appreciated the new era of hope, optimism and co-operation being built between and among member nations of the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD), the eight-nation Horn of Africa bloc.

He pointed out that the world should co-operate in order to achieve the sustainable development goals (SDGs) and agendas set for the well-being of humanity.

Guterres further elaborated that the world should focus on clean energy, gender issues, and digital technology, eradicate lethal weapons, and develop trust between nations to alleviate poverty and ensure sustainable peace and stability.

He also appreciated the IGAD-mediated revitalized peace agreement signed in Addis Ababa between the warring parties of South Sudan to end their civil war.

Earlier, Ethiopian Foreign Minister Workeneh Gebeyehu and Guterres held discussions on the sideline of the 73rd UNGA session. Workeneh said a new era of peace had come to the Horn of Africa following the peace deal between Ethiopia and Eritrea and the normalization of relations between Eritrea and Djibouti.

Stating that Ethiopia had always been working to ensure peace and security in the region, the minister appreciated the UN for its support in consolidating the effort. We are at a moment where efforts are undertaken to compensate for the time lost, he noted.

Appreciating the rapprochement between Ethiopia and Eritrea, Guterres said the fresh air of peace will surely accelerate the efforts to stabilize Horn of Africa. Confirming UN’s strengthened support to the region, he said the peace in the region is of paramount importance to global stability.

Commending the ongoing political reforms in Ethiopia, Guterres hailed the leadership commitment in taking the initiations.
