Time to lift the unjust UN Sanctions against Eritrea
Unjust and Reckless. The sanctions were based on fabricated allegations that are proven to be untrue and nonexistent by the UN Monitoring Group itself. Time to lift these sanctions unconditionally. (Photo: WSJ.COM)

BY BRUH METSAE

On December 23, 2009, Eritreans inside and abroad were at a total loss to learn the imposition of UN sanction against their beloved country. And the swift action they took on February 22nd, 2010 denouncing the UNSC Resolution 1907 and demanding for justice was a reflection of their displeasure towards such illegal and unjust act against a sovereign nation.

Sanctions on Eritrea are Pure Bullying: Ambassador Herman Cohen

BULLYING. Sanctions on Eritrea continued only because certain persons in the highest levels of the United States Government [Susan Rice] have mean spirited grievances against Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki.
By Ambassador Herman Cohen,

The United Nations Security Council has decided to continue sanctions against Eritrea for another year. This decision has no basis in fact. It was taken because certain persons in the highest levels of the United States Government have mean spirited grievances against Eritrean President Isayas Afwerki.

All accusations against Eritrea regarding alleged assistance to the Islamist terrorist group al-Shebab in Somalia have never been substantiated. Continue reading Sanctions on Eritrea are Pure Bullying: Ambassador Herman Cohen

Eritrea: Charges Shift from “Destabilizing Somalia” to “Destabilizing Ethiopia”

The Goal Post Keeps Moving: Monitoring Group’s Charges against Eritrea shift from “destabilizing Somalia” to “destabilizing Ethiopia”

An attempt to save a dying regime at the expense of Eritrea and Somalia

By Ghidewon Abay Asmerom,

By now, it has become abundantly clear that the two sanctions against Eritrea, 1907(2009) and 2023(2011), had nothing to do with stabilizing Somalia or reconstituting it as a viable state. It also had nothing to do with the “staged” Djibouti-Eritrea “border dispute“; it was rather an elaborate scheme to divert attention away from the string-puppet regime in Ethiopia and its lawless adventures in the region, including the invasions and occupation of Eritrea and Somali territories.  Continue reading Eritrea: Charges Shift from “Destabilizing Somalia” to “Destabilizing Ethiopia”

Eritrea Demands Lifting of UN Sanctions

“Security Council duty bound to lift the “Unjust” sanctions,” Amb. Araya Desta

By Peter Clottey,

Eritrea’s UN envoy said Asmara has petitioned the Security Council to lift sanctions on his country after a monitoring group said it found no evidence that Eritrea supports the Somali-based Islamist militant group al-Shabab.

Ambassador Araya Desta said Eritrea has yet to officially receive a copy of the UN monitoring group’s report before it was allegedly leaked to some media organizations.

It’s a pity we have not yet received officially the copy of the report.  But, we have seen it in Reuters [news website] today that they have got a copy and they are talking about it,” said Desta. Continue reading Eritrea Demands Lifting of UN Sanctions

Manipulation of AU, IGAD and the UN Security Council to advance Ethiopia’s Agendas

The May 2009, six hours long private meeting between Zenawi and Rice was the genesis of their ill-gotten, evil agenda of sanctioning Eritrea was first hatched.

By Sophia Tesfamariam,

On 23 December 2009, after the Security Council adopted Resolution 1907 (2009) that imposed sanctions on the State of Eritrea and its people, Susan E. Rice, the US Ambassador to the United Nations, insulting the intelligence of the Eritrean people and showing her contempt for Africans in general and Eritreans in particular, made the following comments to the press:

“…I want to talk about the resolution we just adopted imposing sanctions on Eritrea. This was an African initiative. It was the consequence of a decision taken by the African Union… Continue reading Manipulation of AU, IGAD and the UN Security Council to advance Ethiopia’s Agendas
