Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and Eritrea’s President Isaias Afwerki arrived at a ceremony on Monday to re-open Eritrea’s embassy in the Ethiopian capital, a Reuters witness said.

One week ago, the leaders of the Horn of Africa nations declared their “state of war” over after two decades. They have since moved quickly to cement a rapprochement. Isaias spent the weekend in Ethiopia.
