Ethiopia reopens embassy in Eritrea: media reports

Ethiopian and Eritrean leaders on Thursday reopened Ethiopia’s embassy in the Eritrean capital Asmara, state affiliated Ethiopian Fana Broadcasting said.

Fana Broadcasting said Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and Eritrea’s President Isaias Afwerki re-opened the embassy in a brief ceremony.

Since signing an agreement in Asmara on July 9 to restore ties, Eritrean and Ethiopian leaders have moved swiftly to sweep away two decades of hostility since conflict erupted between the two neighbours in the Horn of Africa in 1998.
