President Isaias Afwerki’s Speech at Dinner hosted in Honour of President Salva Kiir and his delegation

Your Excellency General Salva Kiir Mayardit
President of the Republic of South Sudan,
Distinguished Members of the Delegation,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

Allow me to take this occasion to welcome – again – Your Excellency and your distinguished delegation to this country on behalf of the people and Government of Eritrea.

The bond between the peoples of South Sudan and Eritrea is distinct from other normative or ordinary ties. This special bond was indeed nurtured through vigorous solidarity in a common struggle for justice and liberation; a colossal task that had exacted precious sacrifices of heroes and heroines.

Press Statement – The Question is not “Removal of Sanctions”: It is why sanctions in first place?

In a meeting with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres on 9 July this month, Ethiopia’s Prime Minister, Dr. Abiy Ahmed, urged for the rescinding of the sanctions imposed on Eritrea. This gesture is an eloquent testimony of the courageous and wise stance of the Prime Minister on justice. President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed has also expressed the same sentiment during his visit to Asmara this weekend.

Ethiopian Delegation – Sharing their thoughts

“Eritrean people have shown us how truly they love and respect the Ethiopian people and above all their commitment to peace”

Workneh Gebeyehu

by Sirak Habtemichael | An Ethiopian delegation led by Dr. Abiy Ahmed, Prime Minister of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, has conducted an historic visit to Eritrea and returned home following a two-day successful summit with President Isaias Afwerki. Interview with members of the delegation, Mr. Workneh Gebeyehu, Ethiopian Foreign Minister and Minister of Office of Communication Affairs of Ethiopia, Mr. Ahmed Shide Mohammed follows.

Joint Declaration of Peace and Friendship between Eritrea and Ethiopia

Conscious that the peoples of Ethiopia and Eritrea share close bonds of geography, history, culture, language and religion as well as fundamental common interests;

Recognizing that over the past decades, they were denied the opportunity to build a bright future for their peoples on the basis of their common heritage;

Determined to close this very costly chapter, which also had a detrimental role in the Horn of Africa, and to make up for lost opportunities and create even bigger golden opportunities for their peoples;


A cameraman at the theater of war

We have almost one million pictures that documented the armed struggle

by Asmait Futusmbrhan | If anyone knows the passion and emotions of the Eritrean freedom fighters, it is a sure thing that one would rather want to play rough in the arenas of war with guns and tanks instead of taking pictures. One would rather help his friend after being severely injured in action instead of taking the photo. I am sure he would rather pull the trigger to kill the enemy who had just killed his brother instead of pushing the capture key on his camera.

قيم سبتمبرية

بقلم: د.أحمد حسن دحلي

اليوم وكل يوم في مثل هذا اليوم والشهر ، يحتفل الشعب الإرتري في داخل الوطن وفي بلدان المهجر، بعيد انطلاقة شرارة الكفاح المسلح في أول سبتمبر 1961 بقيادة الشهيد البطل حامد إدريس عواتي. تلك الشرارة التي شقت طريق الحرية والاستقلال في خضم أمواج متلاطمة وفي كبد رياح عاتية، مبددة كابوس الظلم وجحيم الظلام عبر ملحمة نضالية فريدة امتدت لثلاثة عقود كاملة 1961ـ1991، سطر خلالها الشعب الإرتري صفحات تاريخية ناصعة بأحرف من نار ونور، مقدما قوافل الشهداء من خيرة أبنائه. وعندما يحتفل الشعب الارتري بعيد اندلاع الثورة الارترية، فانه يجدد العهد بالتزام بالقيم التي ترسخت في عقول وروح ونفوس وأفئدة الارتريين على مدى تاريخ حرب التحرير، وحرب الدفاع عن السيادة، ومعارك بناء دولة ديموقراطية تسودها العدالة.

وهذه القي هى:
1 ـ نكران الذات والتفاني في خدمة المواطن والوطن.
2 ـ التمحية بالنفس والنفيس من اجل رفعة البلد و حفظ كرامته.
3 ـ تعزيز اركان ومقومات الوحدة الوطنية للشعب االرتري.
4 ـ حماية السيادة الوطنية االرترية وعدم السماح المساس بها بطريقة أو اخرى،
سواء من قريب أو من بعيد.
5 ـ ترسيخ مبدأ التمامن والتكافل على الصعيد االقليمي والقاري والدولي.

Securing the Future through Renewable Energy

by Kesete Gebrehiwet | The availability of sustainable energy is determinant in ensuring an all-rounded development of a country. Infrastructural development is mainly dependent on the availability of abundant sources of energy. Renewable sources of energy such as solar, wind and thermal energy are dependable.

There is high potential of such sources of energy in Eritrea although they have not been exploited fully.

Generation of solar energy entirely depends on countries exposure to sun light and fortunately Eritrea is endowed not only with solar but all sorts of renewable energy.

Eritrea uses non-renewable energy sources for its electricity supply and this has been a bottle neck in the implementation of various development undertakings. Considering that solar energy reduces dependence on non-renewable energy, agro-industrial activities, water supply projects and other infrastructures will be implemented in accordance to the set out time frame provided that the supply of electricity is ensured through various sources of renewable energy.


Scientific Way of Handling Poultry Farming


Efficient management of Poultry-feed would result in a success of the poultry farming business. Poultry-feed preparation requires some resources in order to make chickens healthier and lay sufficient amount of eggs.

Ms. Lidya Weldu, an expert in the poultry development section and a member of the crop and animal development at MoA, has made a lot of research in the field. Ms. Lidya advises poultry farmers on how to prepare a cost-less Poultry-feed and get the most out of it by just looking at their surroundings. (more…)

أسمرا… جارة البحر ومنارة جنوب إريتريا
«روما أفريقيا» تبدي حسنها وتتنسم خريف السلام
جريدة ” الشرق الاوسط “

الأربعاء – 11 ذو الحجة 1439 هـ – 22 أغسطس 2018 مـ رقم العدد [ 14512]

أسمرا: أحمد يونس
أينما تنقشع الرؤيا عن سحب قريبة كأنها تسير هوناً بين الناس، مرسلة زخات مطر أنيس ومدرار، لا تخالطه بروق صواعق، أو هدير رعد، فإن المكان حتماً هو «أسمرا» عاصمة إريتريا. «جارة البحر ومنارة الجنوب» كما يقول شاعرها.ترجع الرواية الشعبية الاسم «أسمرا» إلى أن أربع نساء من أربع قرى تكوّن المدينة، قررن إنهاء حرب عبثية كانت مشتعلة بين سكانها، فأفلحن في مسعاهن وحين تذوقن طعم النجاح، وصفن فعلهن بأنه مفيد و«مثمر»، وأطلقن عليه المفردة التغرينية «أسمرت»، وتعني «صالحت، ووحدت.»زائر المدينة، في قمة «كبسا» وهي امتداد شرقي للهضبة الإثيوبية، يلحظ أن الطقس «الخريف» يحمل أكثر من بشارة الخصب والحصاد الوفير.

تقوم القوى الرئيسية او كبار الساسة في الاتحاد الاوروبي باتخاذ القرارات حسب اهوائهم في قضية الهجرة – عبودية القرن الواحد والعشرين- وكأن القضية تخصهم وحدهم في العمل والرعاية والتشهير بالقضية عبر ابواقهم ، وهنا يتوجب القول نقطة نظام.يقال بان قارة افريقيا تمتلك 60%من ثروات العالم، وبغض النظر عن حقيقة الارقام ، يعتقد بانها ثروة كبيرة. ولكن ماذا استفادت افريقيا من هذه الثروة؟
يعتبر الجزء الاكبر من اقتصاد افريقيا بدائي، والنمو السكاني لشعب افريقيا من الاكبر في العالم. وقد ظلت المواد الخام لثروة افريقيا تنهب ولا تزال بابشع الوسائل، وتعتبر اوروبا من بين الخانقين الاساسيين لتطوره والانتقال من الاقتصاد البدائي الى التصنيع والاستفادة من موارده خاصة الموارد البشرية.في الوقت الذي انخفض فيه النمو السكاني في اوروبا الى ادنى من الصفر في المئة مع الاختلاف النسبي من دولة لاخرى- وثقل

Speech delivered by President Isaias Afwerki at Millennium hall, in Addis Abeba, 15 July 2018

Distinguished People of Ethiopia,
Your Excellency,
Dr. Abiy Ahmed Ali

I feel boundless joy as I convey to you the message of peace, love and good wishes of the people of Eritrea. And, I congratulate you warmly for the successful and historic changes that you have brought about.

We have triumphed over the toxic schemes of the past years aimed at sowing the seeds of hate, resentment and destruction. These malignant acts are indeed anathema to our cultures as well as to our historical and cohesive interests. We are now jointly embarking – with determination – on the path of development, prosperity and stability in all fields and fronts.


Speech by President Isaias Afwerki at State Banquet Hosted in Honor of Somali President

Your Excellency Mohammed Abdullahi Mohammed,

Distinguished Guests,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

I feel immense joy as I welcome – on behalf of the people and government of Eritrea – you, Mr. President, and your distinguished delegation to your home.

The historical ties between the peoples of Eritrea and Somalia are intertwined with the civilizations that flourished in the Horn of Africa; the southern part of the Arabian Peninsula; and, North Africa prior to the advent of Western colonialism in the region. Furthermore and after the onset of Western colonialism, the interaction and bondage of friendship and solidarity of our two peoples was reinforced through various phases and forms of resistance to domination.

Statement by the Eritrean Delegation

38th HRC Session – Item 4 – Interactive Dialogue with the Special Rapporteur
Presented by Ambassador Tesfamicael Gerahtu – Geneva, 26 June 2018

Mr President,

In the last six years, Eritrea has been subjected to harassment under the country-specific resolutions and mandates of the Human Right Council. As pointed out on many occasions, this is not driven by concerns of “grave human rights violations”. The over-arching political objective of the principal architects has always been to villify, destabilize and isolate Eritrea and human right mechanisms have been misused as an extension of regional conflict.

It is unfortunate that the Council is discussing the final but unwarranted and recycled report of the SR. The lack of objectivity and professionalism is again manifested in the unsubstantiated allegations, denial of Eritrea’s achievements and the myths of “no tangible progress, continued concern, lack of genuine commitment, etc.”. Once again, the goal is to recommend unwarranted extreme measures or at least sustain the harassment and confrontation by extending the counterproductive mandate.
