A Changing Ethiopia: Lessons from U.S. Diplomatic Engagement

A Changing Ethiopia: Lessons from U.S. Diplomatic Engagement

Date: Wednesday, June 5, 2019 / Time: 2:00pm - 4:00pm

Yet amid the positivity, Ethiopia faces notable challenges: many reforms remain transitory, the country’s broader national stability is being tested, and its internal politics disputed.  Given the historically strong bilateral relationship with Ethiopia, how the United States responds and supports the transition in Ethiopia will be hugely significant for the country’s future.

The next day, Pakistan downed an Indian MiG 21 jet and captured its pilot. By returning the pilot two days later, India and Pakistan avoided further immediate escalation. However, tensions remain high.
