Press Statement – Eritrea’s Preliminary Response to Joint “EHRC/OHCHR’’ Report

The Ethiopian Human Rights Commission (EHRC), and, the UN Office of High Commissioner for Human Rights (OCHCR), have issued today what they have termed as a “Joint Investigation Report into Alleged Violations of International Human Rights, Humanitarian an Refugee Law Committed by all Parties to the Conflict in the Tigray Region of Ethiopia”.

The Report provokes a host of critical legal, methodological and factual issues as well as matters of precedence, and, international norms and practices.

In this regard, fundamental pillars that require rigorous scrutiny are: i) legal jurisdiction of the entities that conducted the investigation; ii) standards of neutrality, impartiality, objectivity and professionalism of the investigative bodies; iii) credibility of witnesses and mechanisms to validate veracity so as to eschew perjury; iv) robustness and validity of inferences and conclusions that are drawn from the findings.

Remarks by H.E. Osman Saleh Minister of Foreign Affairs of the State of Eritrea At the Sixtieth Commemoration of the Non-Aligned Movement

Belgrade 11-12 October 2021

Co-Chairs, Excellencies,

I bring to this important 60th Anniversary Commemorative Meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement, the greetings of the people and government of Eritrea and of President Isaias Afwerki.

Excellencies,

The Non-Aligned Movement was born at a critical juncture in history, a period of hope, enthusiasm, and vibrant energy. It embodied the profound aspirations of the peoples of Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, South America, the Pacific, and other regions of the world for self-determination, for genuine sovereignty and territorial integrity, for independent paths to political, economic, and social development, for equitable and just world order. It was a visionary movement that crystallized the determination of these nations and their towering leaders to seize their own destiny into their own hands, to free themselves from colonial, neo-colonial, and imperialist subjugation, to resist and fight unwarranted intervention in their affairs. It sought to build humane societies, with people at the center of development. Read more

The Diverse Biodiversity of Eritrea is a National Treasure

Large animals like the elephant, African wild ass, leopard, and ostrich are recognized as important animals that are well known to Eritreans. Small animals are also part of the biodiversity of Eritrea and most people are not aware that some of these small animals were first described scientifically from Eritrea as long ago as the 1830s. Several species are found nowhere in the world except Eritrea and are thus “National Treasures” that must be protected, studied, and appreciated.

The Ministry of Agriculture, the Ministry of Marine Resources, the Ministry of Water, Land, and Environment and other governmental organizations continue to conduct wildlife surveys in each of Eritrea’s six Zobas so that all Eritrean wildlife can be identified and protected from potentially harmful human activities.

Our Freedom Through the Remarkable Shot at Mountain Adal

By Lwam Kahsay
Freedom is the most precious and valuable thing that every human be­ing wants and deserves to enjoy. Er­itrea made a lot of sacrifice to gain its freedom.

September 1 marks the transfor­mation of the political struggle to an armed struggle for Eritrea’s inde­pendence. Eritreans fought together to show their resistance against the Ethiopian annexation of Eritrea. Be­fore the armed struggle started, they had fought legally and peacefully from the 1940’s up to 1961.
