Abiy Ahmed Ali: Well, peace is a very expensive commodity in my country, as well as in my region. This kind of recognition will give me and others great energy to work towards peace and realise peace in our region. If we really successfully achieve the peace dialogue in this process in our region, the rest can be managed and done easily, so this is a great news for Africa, great news for east Africa, the place where peace is a very expensive commodity. And I’m sure it will give us energy to work towards peace and to realise peace in our region.

KS: (Laughs) Well, I am not a priest and I am not sure I am a good preacher either. But yes, if I was a child, I’d expect parents to be like friends and will tell them – ‘Don’t pamper us too much and don’t do charity. Just have confidence in us and you will see the way we progress in life.’
