Eritrean diplomats believe sanctions will be lifted soon

Matthew Russell Lee, a reporter working at the United Nations Headquarter, says Eritrean diplomats believe the sanctions against Eritrea are close to being lifted.

"Some Eritrean diplomats believe they may be close from being “taken off” of sanctions." Said Matthew, in a report released last Wednesday to subscribers.

Mattew, who has obtained a leaked Somali Eritrea Monitoring Group (SEMG) report, also says Eritrea will meet with UN officials scheduled for 7 or 8 December 2013 in Paris, France.

According to Mattew, the upcoming SEMG report is 'lite' on Eritrea violations; a stark difference from its previous reports which caused several members at the Security Council, including veto-wielding Russia, to accuse the monitoring group's report of being dishonest and biased towards Eritrea.

"Russia objects to the publication of the (Eritrea) report due to the biased and groundless conclusions and recommendations contained in it.” Said Vitaly Churkin, the Russian Ambassador to the U.N., after reading the previous monitoring group's report on Eritrea.

Eritrea is guilty until proven innocent?

Last year, the SEMG finally admitted it has no evidence that Eritrea supports al-Shabab or any militants in Somalia. Even after stating this fact, it still recommended the sanctions remain on the country.

Recently, a Somali official said his government has no evidence to suggest Eritrea is arming al-Shabab or warlords in Somalia, and described SEMG's report as 'irresponsible and very misleading.'

Despite the irrefutable evidence showing Eritrea has nothing to do with al-Shabab or warlords in Somalia, the sanctions have remained largely due to U.S. officials at the Security Council wanting to 'punish' Eritrea for challenging U.S.' foreign policy in the region.

  1. This is long overdue. The US should not be allowed to hold the world hostage. As permanet member of the Security counsil Russia and China must keep the wests bullyboy tactic in check.
    We anticepate the lifting of the unjust sanction. The West can no longer impose its will on the rest of the World, as Iran has shown.

  2. big deal of Eritrean people

  3. Good news and good luck Eritreeans for the unjust and misleading sactions to be lifted soon.

  4. It is long overdue and a big relief for the government of Eritrea.

  5. No one expects justices from those hooligans in the White House who control the UN,however,it is not good news for the TPLF and their masters.Blood drinkers are getting weaker by the hour and at the same time getting aggresive too!!!There is no difference from Washington,the so called Eritrean opposition hooligans and the so called monitoring group!!

  6. it will give Eritrean People & Government to manifest their good will as usual in their plan to fulfill and accomplish progress. Victory to Mass, Eternal Memory to Our Martyrs.
