Dear Mr. Secretary General,

This despicable ploy was unleashed in tandem with the decision to block the implementation of the "final and binding" arbitral decision of the border dispute, and, is part and parcel of the war declared against the country. This crime, which is unparalleled in its magnitude, complex organization as well as the immense suffering that itinculcates on its victims, continues to increase from bad to worse ... more

Human Rights Watch: On a Dogged Mission of Defamation

Once again, Human Rights Watch (HRW) is engrossed in its frantic campaign of defamation. The organization has just distributed, through the electronic media, a document that targets Eritrea as a “systemic violator of human rights”. The core areas of its unfounded accusations are Eritea’s National Service and the country’s nascent mining sector. To this end, HRW unabashedly equates Eritrea’s National Service with “forced labour”, which, in its view, “qualifies Eritrea as a violator of human rights”... more

Statement on Djibouti's Accusations
May 12, 2008

Recently the Government of the Republic of Djibouti has formally filed complaints to the United Nations Security Council, League of Arab States and the African Peace and Security Council about a purported border problem with Eritrea.

The Government of Eritrea is perplexed by this unfounded accusation. And while it may require time and further information to probe and fully understand the motivations behind this groundless accusation, it nonetheless bears all the hallmarks of a deliberate desire to unleash a new crisis in our region. In the event, the Government of Eritrea is not prepared to engage in a fruitless public acrimony at this stage.
