Asmara, 27 Jul 14:52 - (Agenzia Nova)- Somali President Mohamed Abdullahi "Farmajo" will begin tomorrow three days in Asmara to meet the Eritrean counterpart Isaias Afwerki. The spokesperson of the Eritrean government Yemane Meskel has announced this on Twitter. The visit of Farmajo comes after the normalization of relations between Ethiopia and Eritrea, sanctioned by the historic declaration of peace signed last July 9 in Asmara fra Afwerki and the Ethiopian premier Abiy Ahmed who sanctioned the end of 20 years of hostility between the two countries . The signing was followed by the visit to Addis Ababa of Afewerki, who last July together with Ahmed attended the re-opening ceremony of the Eritrean embassy in the country, while on 18 July the Ethiopian national airline Ethiopian Airlines officially resumed its direct flights to Asmara after 20 years. Somalia, currently an ally of Ethiopia, has long been in tense relations with Eritrea, especially after the United Nations imposed sanctions on Asmara in 2009 on charges of supporting the jihadist group at Shabaab in Somalia. (continued) (Res)
