[Audio] What is Behind International Condemnation of Eritrea?
“I tell people don’t believe anything you read and almost nothing you see about Eritrea.” – Thomas C Mountain
This episode of the Global Research News Hour attempts to open up a dialogue about this neglected region by bringing in two long time observers with very different takes on the crisis and how it may be resolved.
Dr. Andebrhan Welde Giorgis is a veteran of Eritrea’s War of Independence. He formerly held extensive senior positions including Eritrea’s Ambassador to Belgium, DRC, the EU, France, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, the UK, and Permanent Representative to UNESCO and the IMO. He also served as Governor of the Bank of Eritrea and other positions. Now an exile, Dr. Giorgis currently serves as a Senior Mediation Specialist/Political Dialogue Facilitator at the European Centre for Electoral Support. He is author of 2014 book “Eritrea at Crossroads: A Narrative of Triumph, Betrayal and Hope.”
Thomas C. Mountain is an independent journalist based in Asmara, Eritrea since 2006. He has authored a number of articles on Eritrea, including ‘Eritrea; Africa’s Cuba.’ His articles appear at Counterpunch, Black Agenda Report and other on-line news sites.
