A delegation of Eritrean government officials arrived in the Ethiopian capital for talks about a stalled peace accord.
The visit comes after Ethiopia said it would implement a peace deal agreed with Eritrea 18 years ago to end a border war that killed about 100,000 people. Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed pledged in April that his country will “resolve problems” with Eritrea, which gained independence from Ethiopia in 1993.
The officials arrived at Addis Ababa Bole International Airport shortly before 2 p.m. local time, Shamble Tillahun, a spokesman for the Ethiopian government communications office, said by phone from the city.
The delegation includes Yemane Ghebreab, an adviser to Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki and Foreign Minister Osman Saleh, Information Minister Yemane Gebre Meskel said on his Twitter account.
