The pope received Abiy Ahmed, Prime Minister of Ethiopia, in the Vatican. The meeting was relaxed and quite short, lasting only 15 minutes.

The pope was interested in the state of the African country, and used a translator to speak.

As a gift, the Prime Minister gave him these embroidered fabrics that, he explained, 'are used to pray,' and a picture with the image of the Risen Christ.

On his part, Pope Francis gave him a copy of his encyclicals, his message of the World Day of Peace and a medallion with a special message that the pope explained in detail.

POPE FRANCIS
'This medallion represents a desert with the grape and an ear of wheat. It is the prophecy of Isaiah, which means that one day the desert will become a garden.'

Before leaving, the Prime Minister and his six companions took the traditional photos with Pope Francis to conclude the visit.
