While the rapprochement among Eritrea and Ethiopia had not by any means changed much the lives of Eritreans, it has supported Afwerki's administration. The Eritrean president, who as of not long ago was confronting universal disconnection, now appreciates consideration from worldwide forces.
Presently, he is in a prime position to profit by territorial clashes and strategic maneuvers. Eritrea is situated on the Maritime Silk Road fundamental to China's Belt and Road activity and over the Red Sea from Saudi Arabia and the UAE's endless war in Yemen. What's more, with its long coastline, it is in an especially appropriate spot for another US army installation in the area.
Both Ethiopia's Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and Afwerki are now getting awards from the UAE and Saudi Arabia for their "administrations" or expected administrations in the progressing struggle in Yemen. It isn't hard to think about where this romance would in the long run lead - sending troops to Yemen.
