During his visit, the minister would get acquainted with the humanitarian situation of Eritrea and the problems caused by the present state of Eritrea, the refugee problem in particular.
 
At the same time Finland would encourage Eritrea to increase its international interaction and enhance its dialogue with the EU, the press release added.
