India notes that as many as 270 recommendations have been accepted by Ethiopia including recommendations made by India. India appreciates constructive engagement by Ethiopia during the review process.

3. India notes all consultations undertaken by an inter-ministerial team consisting of relevant government stakeholders under the coordination of the Federal Attorney General as well as outside the government institutions for the purpose of examining all recommendations. Ethiopia also presented a set of development strategies and policies that produced successful results.

4. While recommending the adoption of the report on its UPR, we warmly congratulate Ethiopia for its successful review and wish all the success in their efforts in implementing the accepted recommendations.

Thank you, Mr. Vice President.
