After decades of conflict and land claims, Ethiopia said it fully accepts the terms of a peace agreement with coastal Eritrea. It has also partially opened its economy to foreign investors.
Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s government said on Tuesday it would fully accept and put into operation the Algiers accord, signed in 2000, that ended its war with Eritrea. A state of emergency has also been lifted two months early.
The decision on the peace deal means Ethiopia will have to cede disputed land it has occupied for nearly 20 years.
