Presidents of Eritrea and Somalia are due in Ethiopia’s Amhara regional state for further talks with respect to a trilateral agreement signed in September 2018 in Asmara.
Ethiopia’s Prime minister Abiy Ahmed will host Eritrea’s Isaias Afwerki and Mohammed Abdullahi Mohammed of Somalia who are due to arrive in the country on Friday.
Ethiopia state media said Afwerki will as part of his visit be visiting Bahir Dar and Gondar, the same information was relayed by a spokesperson at Somali presidency on Thursday in respect of Farmajo’s visit.
The last time the three leaders met was in Asmara where they signed a deal built on respect for each others’ sovereignty and cooperation to secure the future of the wider Horn of Africa region.
After that meeting, Foreign Affairs chiefs were sent to neighbouring Djibouti to mediate a diplomatic stalemate between Djibouti and Eritrea. That process is still ongoing. President Afwerki met his Djibouti counterpart, Omar Guelleh, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on the invitation of the Saudi king.
