A surprise announcement by Ethiopia's prime minister to mend relations with neighbouring Eritrea is highlighting the rapid pace of his government's agenda just eleven weeks since he was sworn in.

Abiy Ahmed and the executive committee of the ruling EPRDF coalition is offering to cede control of the northern border town of Badme and other disputed regions to Eritrea and abide fully by a peace deal that ended a two-year border war between the countries in 2000. At least 70,000 people were killed in the conflict.

Abiy says Ethiopia wants to put an end to nearly two decades of discord with Eritrea, which remains on a war footing. But so far the response from the Eritrean government has been muted and while many Ethiopians agree with efforts to solidify a lasting peace with Eritrea and re-open the border, support has not been universal. The Tigrayan People's Liberation Front (TPLF), one of four parties within the ruling coalition, say there was insufficient consultation inside the EPRDF’s 180-member congress on both the peace offer and a separate plan to privatise state-owned enterprises.

The Stream will examine what the peace offer means for Ethiopia-Eritrea relations and look at the performance of the new Abiy government. Join the conversation at 19:30 GMT.
