Un Security Council

End Sanctions Based on Pack of Lies

It is time to annul Resolutions 1907 (2009) and 2023 (2011) imposed on Eritrea based on brazen fabrications choreographed by the Obama Administration’s USUN Mission headed by Susan Rice and the minority regime of Ethiopia. Phantom 2000 Eritrean Soldiers in Somalia, Phantom MANPADS and Forged Serial Numbers, Phantom Eritrean Planes Landing in Baidoa, Phantom Attempts to Bomb an African Union Summits and many more. In face of all these lies and the Monitoring Group's repeated admissions that there is no evidence linking Eritrea with Somalia's troubles, it is time that the U.N. Security Council takes immediate action to terminate these illegal sanctions based on a pack of lies, and without any preconditions.

Eritrea-Time to Lift Long Overdue Sanctions

There was no rational justification to impose the sanctions in the first place, and there is even less rational explanation to maintain them now eight years later. It is high time that the UN ended the travesty directed at a nation and a people whose only desire is to live in peace and with dignity. Thus we feel the immediate and unconditional lifting of these sanctions is long over due.

OEA Calls on the UN Security Council to lift 5-year old Unjust Sanctions

As the leaked U.S. diplomatic cables clearly show, Resolution 1907 (2009) was incubated in the U.S. and hatched in Ethiopia. Though the pretext for the unjust sanctions was to “serve” peace and security in Somalia, as the past five years have made it clear, punishing innocent Eritrea based on false premises has neither brought peace to Somalia nor security to the Horn of Africa. Eritrea, as a nation that has faced its fair share of destabilization attempts by foreign religious extremists, is the most reliable partner the UN can have for peace and security in the Horn of Africa. It deserves the Security Council’s encouragement and positive engagement, definitely not sanctions based on lies. In addition, the UN Security Council, as one of the guarantors of the Algiers Agreement, has an obligation to compel Ethiopia to immediately and unconditionally vacate the sovereign Eritrean territories it is illegally occupying, including the town of Badme.

OEA Calls on President Obama to lift 5-year old Unjust Sanctions

As members of the Organization of Eritrean Americans (OEA), we would like to call upon your administration to lift the two UN Security Council Resolutions 1907 (2009) and 2023 (2011) that the US helped impose sanctions on the innocent people of Eritrea. It is time to do the right thing. These two resolutions were politically motivated; they were based on naked lies and fabricated stories that came out of Ethiopia, Eritrea’s archenemy. There was no rational justification to impose the sanctions in the first place, and there is even less rational explanation to maintain them now.

OEA Deplores UN Security Council’s Extension of Monitoring Group’s Term

OEA Statement November 4, 2014
OEA Deplores UN Security Council’s Extension of Monitoring Group’s Term

We at the Organization of Eritrean Americans (OEA) strongly deplore the UN Security Council’s decision to extend the term of the UN Somalia and Eritrea Monitoring Group and its failure to consider lifting the unjust sanctions imposed on the young African nation five years ago based on charges that have long been proven to be groundless.
