Twenty-seven Ethiopians received Sisi’s welcome, in the presence of the Ethiopian ambassador to Cairo, at the Cairo International Airport, after the success of Egyptian authorities in setting them free.
“What happens in Libya is a concern for all of us, and we are saying to the world that Libya should return a safe and stable country for its people and even to its visitors,” Sisi said during a press conference at the airport.
“We were very concerned about our Ethiopian brothers after the criminal beheading during the previous days.”
Sisi stressed in a short address aired on state television that there is no separation between Egyptians, Ethiopians and Sundanese. “We all drink the same water,” Sisi said, in reference to the Nile River which the three countries share.
