Nobel Peace Prize 2019 awarded to Ethiopian PM

The Nobel Peace Prize winner for 2019 is the Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali. The announcement was made at The Norwegian Nobel Institute in Oslo, Norway.

Abiy was elected as Prime Minister of Ethiopia on April 2, 2018. The summit with neighboring Eritrea, which was held last year between him and Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki, concluded with a peace declaration signed by the two leaders. The document ended "the long 'no peace, no war' stalemate between the two countries," the Norwegian Nobel Committee said in the announcement. Abiy was also commended for initiating "important reforms that give many citizens hope for a better life and a brighter future."
