ADDIS ABABA, Nov. 12 (Xinhua) -- The United Nations Peace Building Commission on Tuesday said that Ethiopia's recent reforms have made the East African country "a beacon of hope."

Members of the UN Peace Building Commission made the remarks during their meeting with Ethiopian President Sahle-Work Zewde, according to the Office of the Ethiopian President.

"The team expressed that the reforms taking place in Ethiopia have made the country a beacon of hope and stressed the importance of taking into consideration national objectives in the peacebuilding process," the Office said in a statement.
