The Somalia and Eritrea Monitoring Group: More of the Same Fiction on the Way?

A little over six months ago, three key members, including two of the 5 permanent representatives, of the UN Security Council raised serious questions about the integrity and veracity of the 2011 report on Eritrea of the Somalia and Eritrea Monitoring Group. The challenges from the Russian, Chinese and South African representatives questioned the veracity of the key charges by the group against the young African nations, and some of them urged the monitoring group to do a better job in its future report.

Letter to H.E. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon

As Americans of Eritrean descent, once again, we would like to express our profound regret that 10 years after the Eritrea-Ethiopia Boundary Commission’s (EEBC) final and binding ruling on the border, the Eritrea-Ethiopia border remains physically undemarcated and Ethiopia is still occupying sovereign Eritrean territories in defiance of the EEBC’s delimitation and demarcation decisions. Not only is this a violation of the Dec. 12, 2000 Algiers Agreement, which the UN was a guarantor, it also continues to be at the heart of the threat to peace and security to the entire Horn of Africa region.
