Ethiopia/Eritrea: Statement by the Spokesperson on the anniversary of the Algiers Agreement

Twenty-three years ago today, Ethiopia and Eritrea, with the support of the international community, concluded the Algiers Agreement to establish peace and demarcate a common border. In 2018, in a historic peace agreement, both countries recommitted to respect the border as established by the Algiers Agreement and its subsequent Boundary Commission.

On this anniversary, we reiterate our full support for the Algiers Agreement and the border as established by its subsequent Boundary Commission. It is more important than ever that the sovereignty and territorial integrity as defined by these agreements is respected by all. This is key for the stability of the entire region.
