Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki will finally visit Ethiopia on Saturday. Eritrea's information minister Yemane Meskel said on Friday that days after the two neighbours declared their "state of war" over.

The visit comes a week after Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed visited Eritrea and signed a pact on resuming ties with Isaias.

Under the historic deal, the Horn of Africa neighbours agreed to open embassies, develop ports and resume flights, in concrete signs of rapprochement away two decades of hostility since war erupted over their disputed border in 1998.
