Qatar says it has pulled all its troops from the border of Djibouti and Eritrea, two East African nations who have a long-running dispute over the territory.
Qatar’s Foreign Ministry said Wednesday it informed Djibouti’s government it had withdrawn its peacekeeping troops.
An Eritrean opposition official says the Qatari troops numbered 450. Eritrea’s top diplomat to the African Union told The Associated Press: “We don't want any confrontation with Djibouti. We don't want to take any of Djibouti's land.”
