Landlocked Ethiopia to reestablish navy: media

ADDIS ABABA, June 2 (Xinhua) — Landlocked Ethiopia is to establish a naval force more than two decades after it was disbanded, state media Radio Fana said on Saturday.

The announcement was made by Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed during a meeting with officials from the Ethiopia National Defense Force, said the Radio Fana report.

However, the announcement did not specify where the navy would be based or when it would be established.

Ethiopia had a navy up to the early 1990s, when the independence of Eritrea left Ethiopia landlocked and prompted the Ethiopian government to disband the navy.
