Djibouti–Ethiopia

The Djibouti–Ethiopia boundary extends for 375 kilometers from the tripoint with Eritrea on the mountain of Mousa Ali to the tripoint with Somalia. The boundary is primarily based on the border that was established between French Somaliland and the Kingdom of Ethiopia in 1897. This frontier received a thorough demarcation by a joint French–Ethiopian boundary commission in the early 1950s. Modern-day Djibouti and Ethiopia do not dispute the location of the boundary and share generally good relations.
