We’re used to countries having a ministry of defence but it’s not often a government creates a government ministry dedicated to peace.

But Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed hopes to change that.

Mr Abiy, in his bid to reform the government, has slimmed down the number of ministries from 28 to 20.

But he has created a new one – the ministry of peace.

Since the prime minister came to power in April he has introduced some sweeping changes including making peace with country’s long-time foe Eritrea.

So what will this new ministry do?

The details are vague. An official document says it will do things related to bringing peace and security in the country and it will strive for the rule of law, the BBC’s Abebe Bayu reports from Addis Ababa.
