Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed says the excessive prices of counting on the nation’s neighbours for entry to ports are unsustainable.
Ethiopia has been landlocked since Eritrea gained its independence in 1993.
For 30 years it’s been depending on its neighbours – particularly Djibouti – for entry to ports and worldwide transport routes.
Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed says the excessive prices are unsustainable.
He’s reportedly stated that Ethiopia will safe direct entry to a port – peacefully or, if mandatory, by power.
What does he imply? And what are the implications for neighbouring nations?
