November 9 1998

Eritrean President Asaias Afewerke completed a 3-day visit to Aden last week. He held several meetings with President Ali Abdullah Saleh and other officials on bilateral relations, and regional security and cooperation. “Differences and disputes exist among family members. The point is not to let such disputes get out of hand,” the Eritrean President told the press. 
He indicated the leaders of the 2 countries desired to overcome the Hunaish problem and re-launch stronger ties and cooperation. The Eritrean President also asked the Yemeni leader to use his good offices with Ethiopia in search of a negotiated settlement to the border dispute between the two African neighbors.
