Eritrea: Guilty Before Proven Guilty

UN should resort to sanctions when there is compelling evidence to security threats and after all diplomatic efforts exhausted. But why non applied to sanction Eritrea?

By Haile Habtegaber,

It is to be recalled that on 23 December 2009, the UN Security Council passed a resolution sanctioning Eritrea founded from unsubstantiated allegations and lies blaming it is supporting insurgents in Somalia and other unfounded assertions.

However, what is beyond belief is the conspicuous dearth of factual verifiable incriminating evidence. Nowhere in all the pertaining deliberations of this case, is it possible to obtain unmistakably and publically accessible citations which Eritrea is in violation with respect to the chaos and disorder in Somalia?

Woyane's “Crab Mentality”, an Obstacle to Peace and Security in the Region

TPLF's Crab Mentality and Obsession with Eritrea

By Sophia Tesfamariam,

The other day, I was talking to an Ethiopian friend of mine who found himself apologizing for the minority regime’s latest diplomatic faux pas.  He was referring to the latest Ethiopian “diplomatic” charade at the UN Security Council. He was having a hard time understanding how any Ethiopian would stop so low as to deprive Eritreans of the right to development. No apologies necessary. I told him that Eritreans know full well that the people of Ethiopia never harbored such evil and willful thoughts about Eritrea or Eritreans. I explained to him that the “crab mentality” was unique to the minority regime in Ethiopia and its ignominious leaders.
