Ethiopia and Eritrea originally reached a peace deal in the year 2000 after a two-year border war killed thousands of people. So far, Ethiopia has not been sticking to its terms. This is now set to change.
Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed is transforming Ethiopia at a breathtaking pace. Germany is already making plans to work closer with the country it regards as a strategic partner.
The skies over Ethiopia and Eritrea opened to a first commercial passenger flight in two decades, giving tailwind to the peace process between the neighbors that severed ties in a border war.
Ethiopia's new prime minister, Abiy Ahmed, may have to do more to convince thousands of refugees belonging to the Anuak ethnic group to return to their homelands.
An attack apparently targeting Ethiopian Prime Minster Abiy Ahmed has overshadowed the radical reform process he has initiated. It also signals the start of a new power struggle in the country, says Ludger Schadomsky.
