Eritrea withdraws troops from border with former foe Ethiopia

Eritrea withdraws troops from border
Eritrea has withdrawn its troops from the heavily militarised border with Ethiopia as a "gesture of reconciliation", the pro-government Eritrean Press agency has said.


"It is imperative for all those who care about the long-term stability and economic viability of the region to do everything they can to help the two countries move beyond the senseless war that wrought so much suffering on both people," the agency said.

Asmara has yet to comment on the report but the move appears to be consistent with recent developments and the restoration of diplomatic ties between the two countries.

On July 9, Ethiopia's Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed arrived in Eritrea's capital Asmara to sign a landmark agreement with President Isaias Afwerki, formally ending the "state of war" between their nations.

A week later, Isaias visited Ethiopia to re-open Eritrea's embassy in Addis Ababa.
