Ethiopian Diplomats Break Stalemate Between Djibouti, Eritrea

Djibouti’s President Ismail Omar Guelleh has agreed to engage in a peace deal with Eritrea to iron out the differences in their ongoing dispute.

The peace initiative was forged by an Ethiopian delegation led by Workneh Gebeyehu (PhD), who met Guelleh this afternoon. The delegation acted as a diplomatic shuttle between Asmara and Djibouti.

Relations between the two states have been tense for the past year following Djibouti’s accusation that Eritrea sent its troops into a disputed territory, following the withdrawal of Qatari peace-keepers.

“This is a big diplomatic success,” a diplomatic source told Fortune. “It will be a great deal to the region’s stability.”
