Ethiopia Reopens Embassy in Eritrea




Ethiopia has reopened its embassy in Eritrea after a 20-year hiatus.

A brief reopening ceremony in the Eritrean capital Asmara on Thursday was attended by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed (PhD), Eritrea’s President Isaias Afwerki and senior officials of both countries.

Redwan Hussein, who previously served as Ethiopian ambassador to Ireland, was named as the new Ethiopian ambassador to Eritrea.

Since signing an agreement in Asmara to restore ties on July 9, 2017, leaders of the two countries have moved to swiftly sweep away two decades of hostility.

In July, Eritrea reopened its embassy in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Abeba, and named an ambassador to represent it.

The two countries have also resumed transport, trade and telecommunication ties.
