The Historic Eritrea-Ethiopia Peace and Friendship Agreement

The historic Eritrea-Ethiopia Peace and Friendship Agreement was signed two years ago, on 9 July 2018, in Asmara. The tumultuous reception accorded to Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed on his arrival in Asmara on the previous day; the jubilations and euphoria that were visible on the radiant faces of the Eritrean people both inside the country and abroad were beyond anyone’s expectations.  Similarly, Ethiopians flooded the streets of Addis Ababa in their millions, for a pompous reception without precedent in the annals of its history of hosting foreign leaders, when President Isaias Afwerki arrived in the Ethiopian capital a week after the signature of the Peace Agreement.
