Martyrs Day Address by President Isaias Afwerki
Asmara, 20 June 2016

Ladies and Gentlemen,

First and foremost: Highest Tribute and Eternal Glory to our Martyrs!

I would also like to express my sincere appreciation to the Eritrean people at home and abroad who have celebrated the Silver Jubilee Independence Anniversary in a spirit of ardent and unparalleled patriotism and imparted additional luster to the festivities, and also through candle vigils and other inspiring activities to pay, once again, glorious tribute to our martyrs.

What gives special meaning to this day – to the Commemoration of Martyrs Day – this year is not only the extensive preparations that Eritreans inside the country and abroad have made in remembrance of the event.  But the open aggression perpetrated last Sunday in our sovereign territory in flagrant violation of international law has imparted additional significance to the commemoration of the Day.

Worn-out Disinformation on Phantom Israeli Bases

The Beirut-based Al-Mayadeen Arabic TV channel falsely claimed, in its “Al-Zehira” one-hour programme broadcast yesterday from 15:00-16:00 hrs, that “Israel has completed the construction of its largest listening post at Emba-Soira, Eritrea” to monitor “maritime movements in the Bab-el Mendeb and eavesdrop on Iran”.

Al-Mayadeen TV channel was requested by Eritrea to explain the source of this ludicrous disinformation but declined to provide appropriate response. Read more

Press Release

Eritrea is aware of Washington’s instigation not only of the attack against Eritrea that the TPLF launched last Sunday, June 12, 2016 but also in its deployment of weapons along the border for a much expanded offensive.    Eritrea will disclose these facts in due time.

In the event, shedding crocodile tears and issuing a bland statement by the spokesperson of the US State Department calling on “both sides to show restraint” cannot impress anyone.

هيومن رايتس ووتش: مقتل أكثر من 400 في احتجاجات في إثيوبيا

أديس أبابا (رويترز) – قالت منظمة هيومن رايتس ووتش يوم الخميس إن قوات الأمن الإثيوبية قتلت أكثر من 400 شخص ضمن محاولاتها لقمع المظاهرات التي أشاعت الفوضى في منطقة أوروميا منذ نوفمبر تشرين الثاني. وظلت إثيوبيا لوقت طويل واحدة من أفقر بلدان العالم لكنها اتخذت خطوات فعالة خلال السنوات القليلة الماضية لتحويل اقتصادها الزراعي إلى الصناعة غير أن مسألة ملكية الأراضي ما زالت موضوعا شائكا في بلاد يشكل المزارعون الأغلبية العظمى فيها.
