NCEA

  • Recalls paragraphs 16 and 17 of resolution 1907 (2009) and recognises that during the course of its current and four previous mandates the SEMG has not found conclusive evidence that Eritrea supports Al-Shabaab;

Lifting Eritrea Sanctions: It is About Time

Lifting Eritrea Sanctions: It is About Time
All indications and reports show that the long overdue, unwarranted and illegal sanctions imposed on Eritrea by the UN Security Council in 2009 and 2011 based on bogus charges—charges that were manufactured and orchestrated by the TPLF regime in Ethiopia at the time, its lobbyists and its enablers in the Obama administration—will be lifted on Wednesday, November 14, 2018. Well, it’s about time and it’s all due to the extraordinary level of steadfastness of the Eritrean people and their government who foiled one plot after another designed to undermine Eritrea’s sovereignty under the cover of these sanctions. The Organization of Eritrean Americans (OEA) has been urging the Council to end this travesty left behind by the Obama administration since the imposition of the first sanctions package on Christmas Even in 2009. We are glad that the forces that orchestrated these lies against this young East African country are no longer wreaking havoc in and outside the region; but, we’re certain that they will not escape the harsh judgment of history. It looks the time has come to put closure on this travesty.

Silver Jubilee of the Eritrean Referendum

NCEA
April 23rd-25th 2018 marked the Silver Jubilee of the Eritrean Independence Referendum and it has been twenty-five years since Eritrea was declared a sovereign country. This historic event was a watershed moment in the history of the Eritrean people. ... "The freeness and fairness of the process has been certified by the observers. This outcome is not surprising or unexpected. … In the event, it constitutes a delightful and sacrosanct historical conclusion to the choice of the Eritrean people. And although it has been decided that formal independence will be declared on 24 May 1991, Eritrea is a sovereign country as of today, April 27, 1993."
