Statement by H.E. Mr. Osman Saleh,
Minister of Foreign Affairs of the State of Eritrea

During the Discussion on the Theme of the Year ‘2016: African Year of Human Rights with a particular focus on Women Rights’ at the 27th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of the African Union

17 July 2016 – Kigali, Republic of Rwanda

Mr. Chairman,
Let me at the outset convey to this august Assembly the warm greetings of your brother H.E. Mr. Isaias Afwerki, President of the State of Eritrea.
Let me also thank and applaud Rwanda, its government and President Paul Kagame for their exemplary accomplishments. I wish as well to express profound gratitude and appreciation to President Idris Deby of the sisterly Republic of Chad for his astute leadership and commitment and for the breath of fresh air he brought to the workings of our organization by insisting on the unavoidable need for prioritization and focus.

Mr. Chairman,
As a nation born out of the struggle for self-determination, human rights and dignity, Eritrea attaches great importance to the theme selected for this year. The focus on women’s rights also coincides with Eritrea’s own vision and priorities as women were at the heart of our liberation struggle and constituted a third of our liberation army. Today they are an indefatigable force in nation building. We are hopeful that the discussion that we are having today and the activities that are undertaken throughout the year will have an impact in the enhancement of human rights in our continent.
