Sept. 22, 2011 (ERITREA) – President Isaias Afwerki arrived in New York City on September 17 to attend the 66th Session of the UN General Assembly.

The president is being accompanied by his top political advisor, Mr. Yemane Ghebrab, the Foreign Minister, Mr. Osman Saleh, and Eritrea's Permanent Representative to the UN, Ambassador Araya Desta.

Since arriving at the UN General Assembly, Isaias has held talks with Heads of States from Kuwait, Senegal, Guinea, Nigeria, Russian Foreign Minister, British Minister of International Cooperation, and with the Chinese Foreign Minister, about various topics ranging from enhancing bilateral relations, to strengthening the AU.

Isaias also met with the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and discussed peace and security in the Horn of Africa, as well as discussing Ethiopia's illegal and belligerent occupation of sovereign Eritrean territories.

President Afwerki will give a much anticipated speech to the UN General Assembly on Friday, September 23rd about regional issues, as well as briefly highlighting international concerns.

On Sunday, September 25th, the President will hold a public seminar with Eritrean citizens from North America, where a large number of Eritrean citizens will gather.

  2. Isaias' speech was easily one of the best speeches at the UN. Very rational, well written and it gets straight to the point. Obama's speech was very weak, predictable and sinister towards the Palestinian people. The Palestinian leader's speech was exceptional and moving.

    Isaias was the only leader at the UN who wrote his speech by himself. Everyone else had a team of professional writers. A lot of people don't understand how intelligent Isaias is. This is a guy who speaks 8 languages (Tigrinya, Tigre, Arabic, Hidareb, English, Arabic, Saho, and Amharic)and a mastermind behind much of Eritrea's stunning battle victories. Isaias is highly intelligent, his only shortcomings his he's thin skinned - but you would be too when Agames are your neighbors.

  7. I think this man is doing great because diplomacy is very vital to Eritrea. because the world's eye was covered by those liers and beggar leaders like Meles Zenawi and his minority pupet government.Hence your excelency president Isaias Afewerki go ahead in this area to stop beggars and liers.

  8. I'm from from south Africa and never seen and heard this president before. When I heard about the UN nation general assembly would happen in America then I decide to watch it. I saw the president of Eritrea from the east part of the continent about his country and about the critical and cruisial things facing our world. when I saw this I want then read the history of this president and how his policy and government's look like??? I think this guy was a cambatant for his people about 40 years. It seems to me, the president of Eritrea history very similar to Nensel Mandela of South Africa. After independence his government I think drafted the policy(self reliance) which is never seen in Africa.I surprised by him because how much he thinks about his people!!!! I think how it was good if the African governments play such constructive ideas to their people instead killing the hope of their own people and stealing its resources.

  11. Isseyas was God sent - he came for a purpose. And the purpose is that ERitrea is meant to be. Our ancestors sent him to us, and for that I'm proud. Yes, he's just like Nelson Mandela, Ghandi, Martin Luther King and Micheal Jackson (who broke racial barrieres across the world and who revulionised many things - that was God's intention, and for that they ridiculed him by investigations and bad presse and ultimately killed him).
