The Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki and Somalia’s President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo on Friday hailed recent progress made in the two Horn of Africa countries’ bilateral relations amid reiterating joint resolve to further strengthen ties.

The two leaders made the remarks during their meeting on Friday in the Eritrean capital Asmara, as part of the Somali President’s two-day working visit to the nation, according to the Eritrean Minister of Information, Yemane Gebremeskel.

The two leaders, who have held “extensive talks” on progress of bilateral ties as well as regional issues of vital interest to both countries, noted that “the multifaceted Eritrea-Somalia bilateral ties have progressed at a remarkable pace in the past year and half since the signing of the Bilateral Agreement of Friendship and Cooperation in Asmara in July 2018,” Gebremeskel said.

Afwerki and Mohamed further expressed satisfaction at the progress made so far in the implementation of the Tripartite Agreement signed between Eritrea, Ethiopia and Somalia.

They also agreed to step up their collective efforts for consolidation of tripartite cooperation and regional integration, according to the Eritrean Minister of Information.

Regarding the ongoing situations concerning Somalia, Afwerki and Mohamed also noted “positive achievements registered so far and underlined imperative of exerting more efforts to bolster key institutions, especially security/defense sectors, rehabilitation of the economy and infrastructure.” Enditem
