Ethiopia And Eritrea Have Declared That The State Of War Between The Two Countries Is Now Over

BBC: Ethiopia's Abiy and Eritrea's Afewerki declare end of war

The leaders of Ethiopia and Eritrea have signed a declaration saying that the state of war between the two countries is over.

The countries have also agreed to re-establish trade and diplomatic ties.

The declaration came at a landmark meeting between the two countries' leaders in Eritrea's capital, Asmara.

The summit between Eritrea's President Isaias Afewerki and Ethiopia's Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed marked the first time the neighbours' heads of state had met for nearly two decades.
