Eritrean delegation arrives in Ethiopia
Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed greeted a delegation of Eritrean officials at Addis Ababa airport

Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed (PhD) welcomed Osman Saleh, Foreign Affairs Minister of Eritrea, and Yemane Gebreab, political advisor to President Isaias Afewerki, at the Addis Ababa Bole International Airport.

The Eritrean delegation came to Addis Ababa to discuss peace talks between the two countries heeding the call from PM Abiy to make peace between the long-time rivals.

The two countries fought a bloody border war in 1998 that left more than 80,000 people dead and displaced hundreds of thousands.

It is the first time in more than two decades that a top-level delegation from Asmara visits Ethiopia.
