US Urges Ethiopia and Eritrea to Work Together

 The US Department of State issued a statement on 12 December 2023 titled "23rd Anniversary of the Algiers Agreement between the Governments of Ethiopia and Eritrea."

On the 23rd anniversary of the Algiers peace agreement between Ethiopia and Eritrea, the US encouraged Ethiopia and Eritrea to respect the territorial integrity of both countries and "to work together, in the spirit of the peace they forged, toward a more stable and prosperous region."

Comment:  This appears to be a subtle (maybe too subtle) warning to Ethiopia not to attempt to gain access to the sea through the use of force and to Eritrea to remove its remaining troops from Tigray Region of Ethiopia.
