Ethiopia Establishes Modern Military - Premier

Prime minister and Commander-in-Chief of Defense Forces, Hailemariam Desalegn said that Ethiopia has built a modern military having a capacity of accomplishing different missions at once.

The premier, graduating 58 military officers from Defense Command and Staff College, said that because of the Defense Forces and other bodies' capacity to protect the national peace and security from internal and external enemies, Ethiopia can advance its development.

According to Hailemariam Ethiopia has built a military capacity being effective in peace keeping missions in the neighboring countries beyond assuring the national peace and security.

He noted that Eritrean government is continuing destabilizing the region, supporting anti-peace elements and terrorism ignoring the peaceful alternative Ethiopia has offered to settle the disagreements between the two countries.

The graduating military officers said that the training they got enables them to accomplish their missions in a better way scientifically.

Out of 58 masters' degree and diploma graduates 10 are from South Sudan and Burundi.
