Statement by the Spokesperson on the release of Djiboutian prisoners in Eritrea

The release of a group of Djiboutian prisoners of war by the State of Eritrea is a significant step that should provide the basis for reconciliation between the Republic of Djibouti and the State of Eritrea.

The EU would like to take the opportunity to thank all parties involved, and in particular the State of Qatar for its tireless efforts that paved the way for resolving the issue.
