Dur­ing the meet­ing, Pres­i­dent Teshome wel­comed Pres­i­dent Kon­rote to Ethiopia and ex­tended the greet­ings of the Govern­ment and the Ethiopian peo­ple. The two heads of state dis­cussed the im­pact of cli­mate change on Small Is­lands De­vel­op­ing States and the ad­verse ef­fects of El Niño in Ethiopia.
