Normalization of Ethiopia-Eritrea Relations Brings Joy--And Challenges

The Washington Post published on 13 July 2018 an article titled "'Like a Dream': Families Separated for Decades by Ethiopia-Eritrea Conflict Celebrate Peace Deal" by Paul Schemm.

The article highlights the joy experienced on both sides of the Ethiopia-Eritrea border following the Ethiopian initiative to end the two decade old border conflict. At the same time, it points to challenges ahead, especially the future of more than 160,000 Eritreans registered as refugees in Ethiopia, most of whom escaped military conscription in Eritrea.

The Washington Post also ran an editorial on 13 July 2018 titled "After 20 Years Eritrea and Ethiopia Are Making Peace. We Should All Celebrate."
