Selected Speeches Of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I




Even before introducing Ethiopia to the League of Nations in 1923, when he was Regent and Heir Apparent, Emperor Haile Selassie saw the necessity of Ethiopia's active role in international politics. Thus he has shaped and pursued a foreign policy in which his country has not remained a mere spectator of the currents of world affairs. He has played and continues to play an active role in international politics. From the League of Nations, to the United Nations, through to the Non-aligned Conference and the Organization of African Unity, His Majesty the Emperor has left for Ethiopia an indelible imprint on the course of world political affairs. In the international sphere, Ethiopia today occu­pies a respected place in the Council of Nations. As His Imperial Majesty observed, We have won, through Our efforts, Our right to this position.
