Eritrea withdraws border troops


Eritrea pulled troops back from the heavily militarised Ethiopian border as a “gesture of reconciliation” with its neighbour and long-time foe, the pro-government Eritrean Press agency said on its Facebook page.

“It is imperative for all those who care about long-term stability and economic viability of the region to do everything they can to help the countries move beyond the senseless war that wrought so much suffering on both people,” the agency said.
