ADDIS ABABA, April 14 (Xinhua) -- Ethiopia's new Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, who is currently addressing the various groups of the Ethiopian society, will meet 25,000 representatives of the Ethiopian community and the diplomatic community on Sunday. The address will take place in Ethiopia's capital Addis Ababa on Sunday, Negeri Lencho, Ethiopia's Government Communication Affairs Office Minister told local media on Saturday. The premier has been addressing Ethiopians residing outside the capital over the past week, in which he assured the public of unity and equality. Ahmed's first trip earlier this week took him to the conflict-hit Somali regional state, followed by a meeting with residents of Ambo town in Ethiopia's largest Oromia regional state, a town that has been a hotbed of protests for the past few years. As part of his third trip outside the capital, Ahmed also on Friday went to the northern city of Mekele, capital of Tigray regional state.
