The Press Section of the Permanent Mission of the State of Eritrea to the AU and UNECA has released its thirty-first bi-weekly newsletter.

Visit here to read the previous newsletter.

End the Occupation, Give Peace a Chance!

13 April 2015 marked the 13th year since the Eritrea Ethiopia Boundary Commission (EEBC), which was
established pursuant to the Algiers Agreement of December 2000, awarded its Final and Binding Delimitation Decision on the border between Eritrea and Ethiopia. The Commission fulfilled its mandate in 2007 by demarcating the boundary.

The AU, UN, EU and US committed to guarantee the Algiers Agreement, and vowed to invoke Chapter 7 of the UN Charter if one or both parties failed to respect their treaty obligations.

However, 13 years later Ethiopia continues to illegally occupy sovereign Eritrean territories including the town of Badme, and the border between the two countries remains highly militarized.This situation has denied the peoples of Eritrea and Ethiopia, indeed the peoples of the wider region, the opportunity to live in peace and focus on their developmental agendas.This should not be allowed to continue any longer!

The end of the occupation of sovereign Eritrean territories will pave the way for the normalization of relations between the two countries and will help in promoting peace, stability and cooperation in the conflict-ridden Horn of Africa Region.

The Guarantors of the Algiers Agreement must urge Ethiopia to respect its treaty obligations and vacate sovereign Eritrean territories including the town of Badme!

Cycling Tour for the Truth, Peace, Justice and Eritrea

The Cycling Tour for the Truth, Peace, Justice and Eritrea began in Gothenburg, Sweden on 31 March and
ended in Geneva, Switzerland on 13th of April 2015. Twenty five cyclists from ten countries (Eritrea, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK) cycled through eight German and three Swiss cities covering over 1700 kilometers.

In Geneva, the cyclists delivered a memorandum to the UN Office calling for:

  • An end to Ethiopia’s illegal occupation of sovereign Eritrean territories, including the town of Badme
  • An end to the illegal UN sanctions imposed on Eritrea in December 2009, and then December 2011, which have long been proven to be based on totally fabricated and falsified “evidence” by Ethiopia and its enablers.
  • And end to all the politically motivated and deliberate misrepresentation of Eritrea’s human rights record and the undeserved vilification of Eritrea.

Along the way, they highlighted the truth about Eritrea and its people and how, despite repeatedly being
wronged, the country is forging forward and has become an oasis of peace and harmony in the Horn of Africa.
