The 45-year old Ethiopian looked comfortable in this setting, every inch the strong and powerful African ruler, and he would later declare his intention to "protect the nation from foreign interference" amid global criticism over the war in the northern region of Tigray. A bundle of youthful and optimistic energy, Mr Ahmed released thousands of political prisoners, lifted restrictions on independent media and asked hundreds of exiled opposition leaders to return home.

European Union summits are renowned for the ingenious ways devised to blur the lines and horse trade on hot button issues. These compromises are what keep the 27 states at the bargaining table until next time.
