It has to be rendered into Amharic. Will you be asking Dr. Fitigu if he has plans to write his biography? Or may be Yodit should go ahead and do it 🙂 Thanks. Répondre Admin says: 1 mois ago Thanks Alem. Of course, i did ask him if he was planning to write his biography but what he told me was that he was not planning to do that but at some point he started writing the diplomatic history of Ethiopia which he has not completed for lack of time. I hope you he will find the time to complete it. The idea of rendering the interview into Amharic is good but i don’t know if i am able to do it anytime soon since i am in the process of doing other profiles. Thanks for reading. Répondre Makonnen Ketema says: 1 mois ago My dad was in charge of MOFA 1961-1971. That’s how my dad changed Ethiopia’s foreign policy. His foreign policy was based on Ethiopia’s national interest. As we’ve seen in the interview, it angered many both inside and outside of the country. Think about it, attacking the UK government in the OAU meeting was a first for Ethiopia. No other official had dared to attack an ally. He did so because it was the right thing to do. He had to defend his fellow Africans. There are indeed many instances where he broke from the status quo. Recognizing China was another one. It was not a popular move, but he had both political and economical reasons for his decision. The most amazing thing here is that the Emperor was willing to let him be. The Emperor was indeed a wise leader. Répondre Work Kebede says: 1 mois ago It is interesting to learn from Dr. Fitigu’s interview that the late French President Charles De Gaulle had supported Ethiopia’s desire to make Djibouti part of Ethiopia after the small country became independent. However, De Gaulle retired sooner than this became a reality. Anyway, it is an interesting interview in that Dr. Fitigu was a participant during an era when Ethiopia was a recognized international actor, thanks in part to the role played by Emperor Haile Selassie and Dr. Fitigu’s colleagues, Foreign Minister Ato Ketema Yifru and his deputy Dr. Tesfaye Gebrezgi.
