Abiy Ahmed Trump complaint
Mr Abiy said he was not aware of the criteria used to select him.
He was credited for his move to make peace with neighbouring Eritrea.
Mr Trump said last week that he had “saved a country” from a big war, a possible reference to his work on another dispute involving Ethiopia.
Ethiopia and Eritrea fought a bitter border war from 1998-2000, which killed tens of thousands of people.
Although a ceasefire was signed in 2000, the neighbours technically remained at war until July 2018, when Mr Abiy and Eritrea’s President Isaias Afwerki signed a peace deal. more
