The first major people-to-people reconciliation event between Eritreans and Ethiopians is taking place on the border between the two countries at Zalambessa.
Eritrean and Ethiopian artists are performing at the celebration.
Many Eritreans are participating, having come from various parts of Tigray, to meet their Ethiopian brothers and sisters.
Eritreans attempting to cross the border from Eritrea were sadly denied by the Eritrean military.
We are now hopefully observing the inception of “brothers in peace and development”!
