What country does Ethiopia belong to?
Ethiopia is bordered by Eritrea to the north, Sudan and South Sudan to the west, Kenya to the south, Somalia to the south and east, and Djibouti to the east. There is no access to the sea, so Ethiopia is a landlocked country. Ethiopia is the tenth largest state on the entire African continent. About 100 million people live here. Ethiopia is about three times the size of Germany.
The name of the country is derived from ancient Greek: aethiops translates as “man with a burnt face”, which means people with dark skin color.
Until 1974, the Empire of Abyssinia existed on the territory of Ethiopia (and Eritrea). Unlike many African countries, no colonial power could occupy the country. Ethiopia is also the oldest independent state in Africa.
