Ethiopia and Eritrea Move to End 20-Year Conflict in Historic Breakthrough



Ethiopia and Eritrea announced the first concrete steps toward normalizing relations after two decades of conflict during an unprecedented visit Sunday by the Ethiopian prime minister.

The two neighboring archenemies agreed to open up their airspace to one another, re-establish telephone communications, reopen embassies and allow Ethiopia—which became landlocked when Eritrea seceded a quarter-century ago—to use its smaller coastal neighbor’s port, gaining precious access to the Red Sea, the countries’ leaders said.
