11:08 am
has done the most to discern the nobel peace prize for 29 teams. thank you very much for your attention. and you are watching live coverage of the of the else 1st taking place in also today of the peace prize the nobel peace prize for 29 teams with me in the studio is peter craven peter craven what do you make of the us i think it's a great time congress model of muslims to good news story for africa and it's very you know we have an african one last year in the south of the prize went to dennys movement from the congo as you mentioned earlier and now we've got another african women very much deserves it he's been instrumental as we have we should just mention his name of course but the ethiopian prime minister has been awarded the prize just so we're all clear about the ordered for his contribution to peace an international call cooperation that's actually reaching out to neighboring eritrea
11:09 am
and that's very important because in recent years very often the the award has gone to single issue or to this sort of not being focused on the the designated c. task c. . bio for a nobel of the peace prize which is bringing about reconciliation peace congresses doctrine of tensions and reduction of fighting between nations that is war be automated certainly achieved in in the conflict the deadly conflict it cost 70000 lives between his country korea and trades his east been a remarkable achievement he came a little bit out of the blue he's been very much identified with his person of course. the retrain leader mr bookwork he also played his part in this so it's not just one man's. triumph but he certainly is a triumph so the committee you're saying this comes a bit out of the blue so would you say that this is a surprise i mean this this particular that was on many people's list you know how it's your listeners like at the start of the show but i think when you talk about
11:10 am
no experience that somebody else has been rights are right at the top of the lists all through the process we call sort of speculation that was created to connect the young see climate climate to go at the un to global warming artifice from sweden and she didn't get the award will there be a lot of discussion about why because she's had a huge impact she's galvanized youth around the world she's managed to generate enthusiasm anger militancy. among 4000000 young people around the world and it's a growing movement of people who wonder why may be great she didn't get the the award but some people were saying she needed to protect it from her success stories yeah there are many worthy candidates in the nobel committee does not release its list of candidates as it were so it's always a bit of a gamble as to figuring out who might win in this case it has gone to the ethiopian prime minister again for what the committee says is his contribution to peace and
11:11 am
international cooperation for his initiative to resolve the border conflict with neighboring iran trip and i want to ask you a little bit about the what this prize is intended to do. because it's not just to recognize achievements already already done but rather as an encouragement and we heard a bit about that today can you tell us more about what what they're what the nobel committee is hoping to achieve with this problem as well it goes all the way back to alfred nobel himself who obviously is very famous for inventing dynamite one of the mostly tools and all. substances that man has never generates it mean he went to his death is it where it is assumed we do not know and not know this with a very bad conscience indeed and therefore he put the money forward for the award to encourage peace efforts between people to encourage negotiations and encourage peace conferences and the reduction of standing armies and military conflicts and this is certainly a prime example of what has been achieved but they've also been doing it so it was
11:12 am
also a domestic achievement for mr ahmed he has been credited with the introducing you can only occur forms that have been people released from prison women's rights are being promoted it's. many people in ethiopia have said that the last year olds who have been the best times in living memory. and that is very much the triumph the achievements of the prime minister of the president so again the nobel prize has been a awarded to the ethiopian prime minister but for his contributions to peace and international cooperation typically for result in more conflict with the with eritrea but the work is not yet done as we heard there are $3000000.00 internally displaced ethiopians in the country and there is still a lot to be done on the peace and any challenges lie ahead as we heard from still call this a war being given as encouragement peter craven the presenter political correspondent thanks for your analysis again this year the simply this is the 3rd year we've done
11:13 am
this running thank you so much. well for more let's cross over to iraq to testify from w.'s aramic service tell us more about why the committee has chosen on or a prime minister in its efforts to forge peace with eritrea. this is a very big achievement for when he make a peace deal between the bandits as you know egypt and. libya who are between 1908 to 2000 season for the next 20 years the 2 countries remain nor peace nor our situation so when ended by making peace in july last year that was a very huge step especially for families who are supported to be because of these conflicts and thousands of people are died because of this why are and after that
11:14 am
after the peace deal the 2 countries more down where opened and 49. connection was restored and the air transportation also resumed in fact after a while the border between the 2 countries are close. or for the 1st deliberation but it was a very huge step forward when it comes to the peace deal between. but obvious achievement is not only that but on the neighboring countries his personal involvement on the. contest of parties of sudan different parties different forces to make a peace deal and to do to have a transitional government that's also a huge step so his involvement in the neighboring countries is huge and also his achievement in the internet and internationally is also one thing but i can say
11:15 am
that the peace prize is given to him because of he's involvement in the horn of africa ok involvement in the horn of africa but specifically focused on what's going on between ethiopia and eritrea as you mentioned there were the spread of long war. between those 2 countries this award is being offered that was explicitly stated as a sign of encouragement for work still to be done how how much work is there still to be done in achieving peace between ethiopia and eritrea. there are so many things we do know are bought by the ways that the peace has been the peace deal between the 2 countries. everyone told told us that there was a peace deal and what we have seen so far is a very generalized statement when it comes to when they told us about that peace did repeatedly you know when journalists and political analysts repeatedly ask get
11:16 am
the details of the peace deal between the 2 countries but still there are that the details are remain unclear so you know the date is even ethiopia's. plan to start to use. t.v. and ports and also to to start trade relationship between the 2 countries and also you know there is a disputed place between the 2 borders which is a mean reason why the 2 countries. that you know they went to war so how they deal. you know 22 sort of border conflict those disputed places which is which is given by the border commission of the 2 countries we don't knows such things so the i can see some of the things
11:17 am
still undone we would see in the future if they solve on the problem between the 2 countries so how important is this as a signal do you think for the horn of africa for that part of africa in in addressing the problems that vex part of the world. as you know the horn of africa is a very volatile region it is very known for a repeated conflict between countries there was also a civil war like for so many years in that when when you see south sudan somalia even in yet you do need to abandon it and. the n.a.s. always have a very volatile region so when avi comes to power the 1st thing what you did is visiting all the neighboring countries even nost night when he opened
11:18 am
a unity park in addis ababa in his palace he brought all the neighboring countries presidents and prime minister said some state to to come to give an end to sort of the problem and to unify that horn of africa country he always said repeatedly said that instead of bringing the last solution for that region we should come to give that we should work together so i can see that this peace prize might have a contribution for a peace in that region thank you for so so much for your insights there that was iraq go test for. american service thanks for joining us thank you very much. and just recapping again the this year's nobel peace prize has been awarded by the nobel committee the announcement was made in oslo just a short time ago and it has been awarded to ethiopian prime minister. for his contribution to peace and international cooperation particularly his initiative to
