Italian foreign ministry secretary, Franco Frattini, has met in Rome the Ethiopian minister, Mesfin Seyoum.
The meeting, just after a couple of weeks of the replacement of the Axum obelisque – for which the Ethiopian diplomacy thanked Italy during its intervention in the UN General assembly – represents a chance to stress how special the bilateral relations are.
Among the themes of the meeting: the new three years program of intervention in Ethiopia that will be launched soon by the Italian Cooperation, the strenghtening business-trade relations and the role of Italian businesses that have an interest in deepening their presence in the African country.
The most important regional themes will be discussed, especially the conflicts in the horn of Africa.
