May 31, 2012 (KHARTOUM) – Eritrea and neighbouring Sudan have signed a framework agreement on working together on strengthening educational links and related fields, according to Eritrean state media.

The Eritrean Ministry of Education and the Sudanese Ministry of Higher Studies and Research signed the agreement in the Eritrean capital, Asmara, last week.

The accord follows a visit to by a Sudanese delegation led by Khemis Kajo Kunda, Minister of Higher Studies and Research, to take part in the 21st Eritrean Independence Day anniversary celebrations.

The new partnership, according to Shabait, will allow both sides to extend their future collaboration in higher education and to explore possible areas of joint cooperation in other related educational fields.

The contents of the agreement pertain to developing the capacity of higher education institutions and establishing ties between higher education institutions in both countries.

The two sides will further undertake various joint scientific research projects, exchanging experience regarding the entire education system, policy and human resource development.

The declaration also encourages introducing modern education facilities and the exchange of scholarship opportunities on the part of both countries.

Semere Rusom, the Eritrean minister of education and Kunda signed the agreement.

It was noted during the occasion that the accord will play a crucial role in boosting the capacity of education sectors of the two nations.

Executive directors of higher education on both sides have consulted and exchanged ideas on management experience, limitations and remedial mechanisms.

Relations between Asmara and Khartoum have been improving. On 24 May the leaders of both countries met in Asmara to discuss relations.

Eritrea, like Sudan, is a pariah state subject to sanctions and accused of heinous human rights violations. How cosying up to Asmara will affect Khartoum’s relationship with their mutual neighbour, Ethiopia, is yet to be seen. After years of civil war, the relationship between Eritrea and Ethiopia remains acrimonious.

      I am sadden and disappointed about Eritrea become terrorist Nation before it build herself up. they should stop align them-self to terrorist nation like North Sudan and come back to their brothers in Ethiopia and Kenya or East Africa nations. I will go to south sudan soon and chase out all terrorist Eritrean and live Christians there only and Ethiopians. South Sudan is Nation of Cush and Funj
