Eritrea and Russia to Boost Trade and Political Ties

In a joint press conference on Monday, Eritrean Foreign Minister Osman Saleh and his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov, announced to boost development of trade and economic ties between Eritrea and Russia.

"Russian companies are interested in implementing a number of investment projects in Eritrea. Our partners have confirmed that they are ready to create favorable conditions for Russian business." Said Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

Stressing the importance of peace and security in the region, the two sides signed an agreement to enhance bilateral cooperation and regional coordination.

"We signed the first in the history of bilateral relations plan consultations between the Ministries of Foreign Affairs of Russia and Eritrea, which will further deepen our political interaction." Said Sergey.

Sergey said they also addressed key issues of international and regional affairs, and agreed to continue to work closely in the UN and other international markets.

"We are convinced that all issues relating to Africa must be addressed primarily by Africans themselves based on the balance of interests of international law with the support of the international community." Sergey added.

Will the illegal sanctions against Eritrea be lifted soon?

Russia played a key role in helping water-down the illegal sanctions against Eritrea. It has also been an outspoken critic of the UN Somalia Eritrea Monitoring Group, going as far as accusing it of being 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 monitoring group's report on Eritrea in July of 2013.

With veto-wielding Russia seeking to build closer economic and political ties with Eritrea, many observers see this as a strong sign that the sanctions against Eritrea will be lifted sooner rather than later.

  1. I personally believe either Russia or a European country will float a new resolution in the U.N. Security Council this July calling for the lifting of the sanctions on Eritrea. I think after much bickering and fighting, it will ultimately pass because the evidence isn't there and the new SEMG team had virtually nothing critical to say about Eritrea in their latest report.

  2. Thanks madote for the information.

  3. It is fantastic to see Eritrea getting much deserved respect from the big power, after all Russia knows what Eritrea made off. 2014 gona be very busy year for hope full nation of Eritrea.

  4. You're welcome bro!

  5. A country who was helping the derg with all kind of weapon to burn the land of Eritrea now became more friend than USA who was helping with oil and child food to EPLF and TPLF ... Russia has only one interest and it is to use small countries like Eritrea to use them to keep their interest against USA interest...Amerca historicaly stood against our independence but Russia sent physically millitary personals to kill our people and burn our cities...too young to remmber or too damn to go back to history..that is poltical prostitution higdef style.

  6. What about you? For how long are you going to prostitute in the PFDJ website?

  7. Not for a long,
    since PFDJ websites will go with Isayas to hell soon. We will have our
    independent, free press in Eritrea and you guys who worship PFDJ out of fear
    will be free as well. We fight for you guys who are prisoner of fear and
    ignorance. I am 100 % sure there is no real Eritrean degafi higdef only
    teblezti .

  8. Do not use weyane's brush to clean your teeth and do not pretend to be Eritrean.
    You are apparently looking in TPLF's mirror while thinking it's a window.
    Stop deceiving yourself.

  9. Let me quote a line from a movie "scarFace" with a little twist: "the u.s. is like a big pussyy, waiting to get fucccked".

  10. The united snakes of America has been deceived the international community for many years. They are exposed naked and no one trust them any more, this is the reason why Russia and some othe countries want to have good relationship with us.Now it is our own turn to choose good business partners.Defenatly it is not washington but the russian federation.let those fascist bark and drool like a leashed dog.We do not need the snakes anymore.we should only follow our own shadow.

  11. long live eritrea, long live ISayas aforki
