It is a giving season for Ethiopia as the country gifted land to neighboring Eritrea on Thursday. The two countries have been on a path to reconcile their differences (Ethiopia's Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed won the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize based on his efforts to build peace between Eritrea and Ethiopia).
Ethiopia donated the land saying it was giving Eritrea a gift where a new embassy will be built to cement relations between the two nations.
Abiy and Eritrea’s President Isaias Afwerki laid the foundation stone for the new Eritrean Embassy to be built at Sidst Kilo in the capital Addis Ababa.
Afwerki is on an official state visit and has also toured several development projects in Ethiopia including the Adama Industrial Park, Holand Diary, the Sheger beautification project, and the Entoto observatory and research center.
