With a landmark visit to Eritrea by Ethiopian Prime Minister Dr. Abiy Ahmed and Eritreaís President Isaias Afwerki visiting Ethiopia, Ethiopia and Eritrea resumed diplomatic relations last year after 20 years of hostility. The people of Ethiopia and Eritrea share numerous complementarities in terms of culture, history and livelihood, so the main aim of the two countries is to enhance intercultural relations.

In line with this, the Eritrean Public and Cultural Diplomacy Delegation arrived in Addis Ababa on February 14. The Delegation, composed of over sixty Eritreans from different cultural, professional and other walks of life, came to further strengthen intercultural relations between the two countries. They provided cultural and musical concerts, under the theme of the “Grand Musical Concert to Celebrate the Peace between Ethiopia and Eritrea”; celebrate and strengthen peace between the two countries.

The Eritrean cultural and musical groups performed their concerts and held meetings and discussions with their Ethiopian counterparts, relating to different federal and regional government officials and community representatives. The two countries have a long-standing relationship and the people of Eritrea are committed to raising relations to an even higher level. In addition, they underlined that the people of Eritrea are committed to the mutual growth, and they would like to have an even closer and stronger relationship with the people of Ethiopia.
