Ethiopia, Eritrea Step Ahead for Peace




Ethiopia has welcomed the positive gestures by Eritrea’s President Issayas Afeworqi’s who announced that he will send envoys to Addis Abeba.  This announcement has ushered in the first steps on the road to peace between the two countries.

In his televised address to the Eritrean people on Martyrs’ Day, Issayas announced his government’s decision to accept the offer from Ethiopia to fully implement the Algiers Agreement and to unconditionally accept the rulings of the Boundary Commission.

“He [Abiy] has expressed his readiness to warmly welcome the Eritrean delegation to Addis with considerable goodwill,” twitted Chief of Staff, Fistume Arega.
