The UN Security Council passed a resolution imposing sanctions on Eritrea on the 23rd of December 2009, with full support from the British government, for allegedly providing financial support to the Somali insurgents and in relation with the conflict with Djibouti. The sanctions include an arms embargo, travel bans and asset freezes. No evidence has been presented to substantiate the accusations. The British government has classified the evidence it claimed it has and would not disclose it to our community representatives or anyone else for that matter.
The UN Security Council has imposed sanctions against Eritrea that include an arms embargo, asset freezes and a travel ban, all based on an unfounded allegation that Eritrea is supporting extremists in Somalia. Eritrea’s consistent stand is against all forms of extremism in the region. This is a reckless move without any foundation. Eritrea, itself a victim of Terrorism and at the forefront in fighting international terrorism, surely doesn’t deserve this sanctions. Even the thought of it is offensive!
