The first Ethiopian Airlines flight from Ethiopia to Eritrea in 20 years departed Addis Ababa early on Wednesday, a Reuters witness said, marking the resumption of flights between the two neighbors who ended their “state of war” last week.


Since signing an agreement in Asmara on July 9 to restore ties, the leaders of Eritrea and Ethiopia have moved swiftly to implement concrete signs of a stunning rapprochement that has swept away two decades of hostility since conflict erupted over a disputed frontier in 1998.
