Sudan and Eritrea have announced their agreement to open the border between them and to facilitate the normal movement of citizens after the regime of Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir has been closed down for a year and a half.
Besides, Asmara has announced his support for the Sudanese military junta, the Sudanese news agency reported.
This happened during the joint talks between Eritrean President Isaiah Afeverky and Abdul Fathah Burhan, head of the Transitional Sudan Military Council, who is visiting Asmarah for a day.
The closure of the border between the two countries has caused the suffering of many citizens after the decision of January 5, 2018, after Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir had declared the state of emergency in this border region.
The official Sudanese news agency cites Abdel-Monem, Abd-Monem, Abd-Monem, Foreign Minister Abd al-Baiti, as saying that the evidence during the talks gave an insight into the current situation in the country.
For his part, President Afeverky stressed his country's support for the Sudanese people and the rejection of foreign interference in Sudan's affairs. "Only the Sudanese people decide their own destiny," he said.
Relations between the two countries were strained after a statement from the Eritrean Ministry of Information, in which Khartoum and Doha were accused of secret accommodation and funding of an Islamic opposition office in Eritrea in an isolated area of Sudan.
The statement said the Qatari embassy in Khartoum financed these activities while the Sudanese Security and Intelligence Service conducted training and logistics.
The Sudanese Foreign Ministry expressed its surprise at Eritrea's statement and rejected the claims of the Sudanese news agency SUNA.
