Ethiopian PM Calls For Peace As He Receives Nobel Medal in Oslo

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed received his Nobel Peace Prize medal in a ceremony on Oslo on Tuesday December 10, 2019. He said he was accepting the award "on behalf of my partner, and comrade-in-peace, (Eritrean) President Isaias Afeworki, whose goodwill, trust, and commitment were vital in ending the two-decade deadlock between our countries. I also accept this award on behalf of Africans and citizens of the world for whom the dream of peace has often turned into a nightmare of war."
