NAIROBI (Reuters) - Ethiopia’s prime minister said his landlocked nation of 100 million people will begin using the port of neighboring Eritrea, its longtime sworn enemy, after a day of historic talks with President Isaias Afkwerki.

“Ethiopia will resume using Eriteria’s port,” Abiy said in remarks broadcast by both nations’ state broadcasters while the prime minister was attending a state dinner hosted by Isaias.
