Ethiopia and Eritrea are re-opening a key border between the two nations after closing it for two decades.
The reopening is following the restoration of diplomatic relations between the two nations months ago.
The relations were restored after the leaders of the country signed a peace deal following years of fighting.
Soldiers from both countries have been working together to clear the huge boulders and barriers that blocked movements at the border.
Ethiopia and Eritrea fought a border war from 1998 to 2000 that killed an estimated 70,000 people from both sides.
A peace accord dubbed the Algiers agreement was signed on December 12, 2000.
Despite the peace agreement a tense armed standoff ensued with the two countries engaging in clashes occasionally.
Abiy Ahmed and Isaias Afwerki both helped in resolving the conflict and recently restored diplomatic ties among their two countries.
