  2. Eritrea: President Accuses U.S. of ‘Genocide’ in Somalia

    Asmara

    The Eritrean president, Isayas Afewerki, has said the current economic, political and security crises being witnessed in the world are the consequences of the “vulgar adventurism” of the US Administration.

    Presenting a report to a cabinet meeting in the capital, Asmara, on 28 August, President Isayas said the complicated issues and developments in the region were also part of the global political and security situations.

    The president reiterated that the “genocide” being carried out in Somalia by the US Administration and its “servants” was “the biggest crime of the 21st century”, and said even worse was the act of stifling to deny the situation the attention of the world.

    President Isayas said Ethiopia’s invasion of Somalia had exacerbated the situation of the already troubled Horn of Africa region. Compounded by “the worsening internal political crisis” in Ethiopia as well as Sudan’s problems which were being complicated by “subversive” external interference were leading the Horn of Africa to “unimaginably dangerous” situation.

    Stating that various attempts were made to undermine the peace and tranquility in Eritrea, the president said the “conspiracy” to carryout a subversion (presumably against Eritrea) by placing Djibouti in the forefront in the last few months could not work because the Eritrean government and the peoples of Eritrea and Djibouti handled the issue with patience.

    Regarding the regional body, IGAD (Inter-Governmental Authority on Development), President Isayas said the organization had not been efficient since it had fallen victim to external interference, and needed reorganization.
