Updated: January 28
In an effort to learn and better understand the reality in Eritrea, a UN High Commission on HR sent out a two-members team on a cooperative exploratory visit to the country from January 21-25, a senior official announced.
The UN team met with government officials, civil society representatives, and the diplomatic community. They also visited Keren and took a tour of some of the development projects in the country, the official said.
The trip comes just one month after UNDP delegation, headed by Mr. Abdoulaye Mar Dieye, Assistant Secretary General and Regional Director of UNDP/RBA, visited Eritrea.
During their meeting, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Osman Saleh pointed out the UNDP visit was fruitful as it laid the groundwork for high-level interaction pertaining to national development agendas and joint partnerships.
“No nation can achieve sustainable development in the absence of safe neighborhood and cooperative regional environment,” the Foreign Minister said.
