Djibouti: 40 ans après l’indépendance

par Mohamed Kadami | Nouvel eldorado pour les grandes puissances, Djibouti ancienne colonie française, indépendante depuis 1977, est devenue depuis la guerre au Yémen un enjeu régional. Située entre l’Erythrée, l’Ethiopie et la Somalie, au carrefour de l’Arabie et de l’Afrique, sur la Mer Rouge, Djibouti a une position de verrou de cette ligne maritime si importante pour la vie économique internationale. Elle en tire une réelle valeur stratégique et géopolitique, ainsi qu’une rente conséquente. Ce qui explique qu’elle accueille plusieurs milliers de soldats occidentaux, français, américains, japonais ainsi qu’une base chinoise en construction.

President’s Speech on the Occasion of Martyrs Day

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Participants and invited guests,

First, I would like to convey my appreciation to the Eritrean people at home and abroad, and particularly the organizers and professionals for the due preparation they made and their activities in honor of our fallen heroes. Also my thanks to children and the youth for their candle lit vigil in connection with this auspicious occasion.

What gives special weight to this occasion is the exemplary heroism our martyrs demonstrated as regards their conviction, steadfastness, dedication, creativity and diligence, coupled with self-sacrifice. The special values our martyrs bequeathed to us constitute a value system that characterize our identity and patriotism nurtured during the armed struggle for independence. National value system is not an option or charity; they are human necessities for existence. Our liberation would not have materialized short of these values. Read more
