British Government Welcomes Eritrea's Decision to Limit National Service to 18 months

Since November 2014, Eritrea has limited National Service to 18 months



Recently, Lady Glenys Kinnock, a British politician, asked the Home Office and Foreign and Commonwealth Office officials, who visited Eritrea in December 2014, on what their "assessment of the assurances given by the government of Eritrea that military service will be limited to 18 months; and whether they will undertake analysis of the matter and report on the outcome."

Joyce Anelay, the Minister of State of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, replied:

"Eritrean officials provided assurances that national service will now be strictly limited to 18 months. We welcome this decision but will continue to press the Eritrean government to live up to this commitment."

Similarly, during a House of Lords debate on Eritrea and Ethiopia two weeks earlier, Lord Avebury, a Liberal Democrat politician, informed his colleagues that Eritrea ended its open-ended National Service (NS).

"The Eritrean ambassador [Estifanos Habtemariam] told us that from last November conscription was limited to 18 months and that conscripts would not be required, as before, to perform civilian work such as road building, earning no more than $30 a month." Said Lord Avebury.

News of Eritrea capping NS first came in November, when AdalVoice reported that the charge d’affairs of the Eritrean embassy to the United States, Mr. Berhane Gebrehiwet, told Eritreans from the United States that NS would be limited to its original practice of 18 months.

A month before Mr. Berhane's announcement, the Danish Immigration Service (DIS), which was in Eritrea to report on the real human rights situation in the country, mentioned "the government is considering returning to the original 18 months of National Service that is stipulated by the law."

Regarding the length of NS during their visit, DIS quoted a Western official in Asmara who stated that “a broadly shared perception is that the government has eased its approach to National Service. Today it is easier to be released from service and for young people today, National Service seems to be limited to a couple of years.”

  1. Our national service shouldn't be UK's concern.

  2. This is simply a hoax. I called back home and all my friends, families and neighbors and they are still enslave by the mafia group. The mafia group can fool me for 24 years, but not for ever. May the almighty god free our brothers and sisters!!!

  3. If the Nat'l Service was indeed restored to its original 18 months limit, all those slaving in the trenches for the last 10 years would have come back home by now. May God rid our country of this savage regime.

  4. Well, the British gov't poleticians know a lot about Eritrea cau's they
    have influential agents since their facking protectorate period. Some
    who worked for them then, work for them still, it has become sort of a
    family tradition. British council, shell and etc... the old demons still
    survive and it is hard to keep them on check. The newbies are yet far from discovering or are they awaiting opportune time?

  10. Hehehe, I sometimes wonder if those people who write this kind of articles are really Eritreans?. We the real Eritreans are well informed thanks to our relatives still serving in the never ending so called national service. If this is true why didnt the regim announce it on its media and inform those who are directly affected i.e. the youth at home?. It is just a propogranda directed to the governments in the west.

  12. I am with you 100%. Before they inform their white masters, they should inform the Eritrean people who lives in Eritrea. Hearing a very important info like this from foreigners is very insulting.

  14. warsay hadami,
    National service was indeed eritrean concern. Unfortunately, it became the concern of international community simply becouse people were serving more than 20 years in the slavary service.
