Eritrean Chief of staff and Defense Minister, General Filipos Weldeyohanes, reportedly visited Ethiopia days after Eritrean President Isayas Afeworki returned to his country after two days of an official working visit amid Coronavirus state of emergency in Ethiopia.
The business of his visit is said to be of “mutual concern” for both countries, according to Eritrean News sources.
Ethiopian State media have not covered the story.
After ending well over two decades of state of war, Ethiopia and Eritrea have been holding a series of bilateral consultations to elevate bilateral ties and cooperation on a range of issues including regional security.
The Eritrean President has visited Ethiopia about five times since July 2018.
