UAE lends a helping hand in peace between Ethiopia and Eritrea

United Arab Emirates has been a crucial country of ending the two-decade-old state of war between their two countries, one of the drivers behind that process which has been a major player in the Horn of Africa for decades.

The oil-rich Gulf state has gained increasing influence in the region in recent years, according to both UAE and Ethiopian officials and diplomats.

Minister of State for International Cooperation, Reem al-Hashimy, has humbly informed in a Washington function that UAE had “played a humble role in trying to bring these two countries together”.

Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan in a meeting said Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki that their agreement would enhance security in the Horn of Africa and wider region.
