When asked about China's views on Ethiopia's peace deal and the progress of the "Outlook on Peace and Development in the Horn of Africa" in Ethiopia, Qin Gang said that Ethiopia is the common home of all Ethiopians, including those from the Tigray Region. With the ceasefire agreement recently reached between the federal government of Ethiopia and the Tigray People's Liberation Front being steadily implemented, Ethiopia has entered a new stage with a hope for peace and a focus on development. China is truly happy about this and extends warm congratulations to the government and people of Ethiopia.

Qin Gang said that China has always believed that the conflict in the Tigray Region is an internal affair of Ethiopia and that the Ethiopian people have the wisdom and ability to independently resolve their internal differences;  China has always respected Ethiopia's sovereignty and territorial integrity and supported the Ethiopian government and people's efforts to achieve national peace, unity and development; China has always supported African people in solving African problems in African ways.
