Opening for Ethiopia-Eritrea Talks?

From The Official Blog of Amb. David H. Shinn Sat Dec 8 2012, 15:01:00

Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn in an interview with Al-Jazeera on 5 December 2012 said he is willing to go to Asmara to hold face-to-face talks with Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki over the deadlocked border dispute. This follows an offer the previous month by South Sudan to mediate the dispute.

It is not clear whether this is an opening for serious talks or posturing. In any event, there has not yet been any public response from the Eritrean side.
