Text size Aa Aa

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The United Nations Security Council unanimously voted on Wednesday to lift a nearly decade-old arms embargo and targeted sanctions on Eritrea after a rapprochement with Ethiopia and thawing of relations with Djibouti.

The resolution also urges Eritrea and Djibouti to work towards normalising ties and settling a border dispute. It asks Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to report back to the council on progress by Feb. 15 and then every six months.
