Impotence of the UN and Ethiopia’s Impunity

When will the United Nations Security Council shoulder its moral and legal obligations to end Ethiopia occupation
16 Years Later. When will the UN Security Council shoulder its moral and legal obligations and end Ethiopia’s 16-year long occupation and restore Eritrea’s sovereignty and territorial integrity?

BY SOPHIA TESFAMARIAM | SHABAIT

April 13th will mark the 16th anniversary of the Eritrea Ethiopia Boundary Commission’s (EEBC) “final and binding” decision on the Eritrea Ethiopia border. There is not much that can be said about the historical decision that has not been said before, but it would not hurt to re-iterate some facts: Continue reading Impotence of the UN and Ethiopia’s Impunity

Eritrea – Ethiopia: 15 Years of Silence and Complicity

OEA asks UNSC to end occupation of Eritrean territory and lift the sanctions.

The Organization of Eritrean Americans (OEA) strongly urges the Council to break its cycle of continued injustice against Eritrea and its people by forcing the Ethiopian regime to unconditionally comply with the U.N. Charter and international law.

Analysis: The Algiers Peace Agreement

The UN Security Council as Guarantor to the Algiers Peace Agreement and the ensuing impact on the peace and security in the Horn of Africa

“No mechanisms to revisit the EEBC decision and the first step towards normalisation of relation with Eritrea is if Ethiopia unconditionally accept the final and binding nature of the Commission’s findings” – Lord Eric Avebury

By Ruby Sandhu,

This paper is dedicated to Lord Avebury, liberal Democrat and a Friend of Eritrea. He engaged with the British Government, MPs as well as the Eritrean and Ethiopian Governments on the failure of the Ethiopian Government to comply with the decision of the Eritrean Ethiopian Boundary Commission and the ensuing impact on the people of Eritrea and on peace and stability in the Horn of Africa.

During one of my meetings with him, he requested that I provide an overview of the current impasse. Sadly, I was unable to complete this task for him to review before he died peacefully at his London home on the 14th February 2016. Continue reading Analysis: The Algiers Peace Agreement

Virtual Demarcation: Poor Excuse for Ethiopia’s 14 years Long Occupation

The late Prime Minister of Ethiopia Meles Zenawi once said well respected diplomats told him that virtual demarcation of boundary is nothing but a ‘legal nonsense’. But who were these “well respected diplomats” advising the regime for the occupation of sovereign Eritrean territories for the last 14 years?

Many scholars, journalists and lawmakers prefer to label Ethiopia’s occupation of Eritrean territories as being some kind of “stalemate”, “deadlock” etc. in the peace process. This has emboldened the minority regime in Ethiopia to continue with its belligerent stance for over a decade. Instead of enforcing the EEBC’s decisions, the U.S. led international community has instead chosen to remain silent publicly, while it works to erode the EEBC’s delimitation and demarcation decisions in private.
