55 years of the Elysée Treaty

On the occasion of the 55th anniversary of the Elysée Treaty, Mrs. Brita Wagener, Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany, welcomed the German students from the Lycée Guebre Mariam and the French students of the German School from the German Embassy School in the presence of Mr. Frédéric Bontems, Ambassador of France to Ethiopia.

While the Elysée Treaty, symbol of Franco-German reconciliation, recognized in 1963 the friendship between our two countries in setting the objectives of cooperation between France and Germany in the fields of defense, foreign affairs, and education and youth, this celebration allowed students from both German and French schools to come together and organize theatrical and dance performances together.

It is in the spirit of the Elysée Treaty that the German Embassy School Addis Ababa, Ethio-French Alliance of Addis Ababa and the Embassy of France signed on that occasion a partnership agreement providing for the sharing of a number of educational and linguistic resources, thus reinforcing Franco-German cooperation in the field of learning French and German languages.
