Prime Minister Dr Abiy Ahmed, who is also Commander In Chief of the Ethiopian National Defense Forces highlighted key reforms that have been taking place within the military to address issues of transparency and other gaps, noting the results thus far have been remarkable.



However, he said, modernizing the defense sector is not a one time job and it needs time.



Chief of Staff of the Defense Force, Gen. Seare Mekonnen said the defense force is now at a promising position to fulfill its main goal of safeguarding the constitutional order and sovereignty of the nation.



He further said members of the defense force defused violence occurred in some parts of the country following the nationwide reform.



Structural reform and reshuffling of leadership were undertaken at all levels within the military, he added.
