UNSC Resolution 2023(2011)

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.
