Saleh, Minister of Foreign Affairs, participated at the 23rd submit of the African Union (AU) held in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea, from 20-27 June 2014 under the theme “Year of Agriculture and Food Security”.

The summit has been held in three levels.

In a statement he delivered to the Assembly of the Heads of State and Government on 26th June, Minister Osman underscored that the achievement of food security is of paramount importance to the security, dignity and development of Africa.

He further stated that the Government of Eritrea has put the achievement of food security at the top of its development agenda and has made huge investment towards that end. Further more, the Minister indicated that Eritrea’s ultimate objective is not only to produce enough to feed its population but also to make agriculture the basis for industrialization through value-addition.

The Minister went on to list the activities undertaken by the people and Government of Eritrea to prepare the ground-work for the modernization of the agricultural sector, including human resources development, infrastructure, and soil and water conservation.

Minister Osman also emphasized that ‘Agriculture and Food Security’ is not a theme that could be shelved at the end of the year, but a mission that the people and Governments of Africa need to dedicate their efforts and resources to until its fulfillment.

Furthermore, on 25 June, the Delegation attended the meeting of the AU Peace and Security Council (PSC) held at the level of Heads of State and Government to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the establishment of the PSC.

  1. Before it became a 'theme' the people and goverment of Eritrea gave food security a top priorty of top priorities, thereby guarantying and achieving self sufficiency. No Eritrean shall go to bed on unempty stomach! Eritrea Leads by example.

  2. Why going to the same organization that we labelled "Useless" among other terms? The same empty bravado ?

  3. Eritrea have nothing to do with the african states modus operandi..will be seen in the next few years..even to this rotten world

  4. Good news! USA refrains from the HRC26 illegal resolution. Please read the US Department of State release. "Ambassador Estifanos @AmbassadorEstif "tweeter" US silence/distancing itself from HRC26 illegal resolution against #Eritrea is a good starter on the right direction
    Eritrea my country will remain as a Peace of Island!

  5. They didn't list it because they forgot even if there is a country called so. They gave up on it, because they have decided that .... everybody knows :)
