ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) –United Nations chief Antonio Guterres has said that the rapprochement between Ethiopia and Eritrea was “illustrative of a new wind of hope blowing across Africa”. “The visit by the Ethiopian Prime Minister is an amazing success,” Guterres said. Guterres was visiting the Ethiopian capital a day after Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and Eritrea’s President Isaias Afkwerki declared that a “state of war” since a 1998-2000 conflict had given way peace and vowed to restore diplomatic and trade links.
