President Isaias Afwerki of Eritrea is due to visit neighbouring Ethiopia on his first official visit in two decades.

The

Addis Fortune news portal

Afwerki is expected to meet his counterpart Abiy Ahmed for talks, with the portal adding that he will deliver an address to invited residents at Addis Ababa’s Millenium Hall. Either governments have yet to confirm the visit.

Two decades of soured relations between the two was fixed when PM Abiy Ahmed accepted an international border ruling that was at the center of their disagreement and a subsequent war that claimed the lives of thousands.

Afwerki sent a delegation led by the country’s foreign minister to gauge the mood in Addis Ababa after Ethiopia agreed to accept and implement the border ruling.

Subsequently, Abiy’s historic visit to Asmara was celebrated by majority of Ethiopians and Eritreans alike. The roads of Asmara were lined by jubilant people who welcomed Abiy and his delegation.

At the end of his visit, the two leaders signed a five-point agreement primarily ending the war that existed between them and restoring all strained relations.

Ethiopia’s national carrier has subsequently announced a daily flight to Asmara whiles Ethio-Telecom has restores phone lines between the two countries.
