Addis Ababa, January 17, 2003 (Addis Tribune): Eritrea has joined the Arab League as an observer and is to send an ambassador to the pan-Arab body later this month, the Cairo-based organisation said Friday.

The Arab League welcomed Eritrea's decision as "a positive sign of the deepening relations between Eritrea and the Arab states". Hassan Kordi was named as as Asmara's representative, who is expected at the League's headquarters in late January, according to a report filed by Syria Times.

This will be the first time that Eritrea, whose second official language is Arabic, to take part in the 22-member body since winning independence from Ethiopia in 1993.
