Feeling a potential threat by Qatar, Asmara mobilises the army

THE INDIAN OCEAN NEWSLETTER ISSUE 1474 DATED 18/05/2018

On 14 May, the Eritrean Ministry of Information issued a press release accusing Qatar of financing an Eritrean jihadist group in eastern Sudan with the assent of Omar al-Bashir and the Ethiopian prime minister Abiy Ahmed Ali. Asmara states that this agreement was reached during Abiy Ahmed Ali's official visit to Khartoum from 2 to 3 May (ION 1473). According to our sources in Asmara, since Sudan closed its borders, the Eritrean president Issayas Afeworki has been fearful that Bashir will deploy the many Eritreans who have sought refuge in Sudan against Asmara - there are several hundred thousand Eritrean refugees, some of whom have been there for two generations. The names of several Islamists allegedly financed by Qatar have been circulating for the last two months, and in particular the name of Abu Rachid, a well-known figure in Islamist circles who has reportedly moved from his Turkish base to eastern Sudan. According to information obtained by the Indian Ocean Newsletter in Addis Ababa, Issayas Afeworki has reacted by mobilising his troops to counter any potential threats, calling up reservists and young conscripts. It may be though that he is merely flexing his muscles and has no plans to take military action. Since Abyi Ahmed Ali's election, he has modified his language when referring to the Ethiopian leadership: instead of using the epithet Woyane (a nickname for the Tigray People's Liberation Front - TPLF), he now speaks of the ‘leaders of the Ethiopian federal government'. He is thereby accommodating the Oromoswho, like the new PM in his inauguration speech, are reaching out to Asmara

Is the Prime Minister of Ethiopia playing the "Trump card" on Eritrea? Threaten and blackmail to force dialogue!  Image result for trump card
So, the Ethiopian government calls for continuation of the hated Sanctions against Eritrea then threatens to unleash the Eritrean Jihadists on Eritrea while sending on social media the Woyane Cyber warriors to campaign for peace and wave olive branch; to force dialogue. Blackmail to force dialogue? One thing the Honorable Prime Minister should take into consideration and understand is that Eritrea aint North Korea and our Eritrean President aint that guy with the weird hair-do. I bet the Eritrean President is invoking the Eritrean proverb.....and saying
ክንደይ ዘይረኤና በለት ጡሽ፦


Ethiopia calls for continuation of the hated sanctions

On  May 9, 2018 (State Minister Hirut stressed the lifting of the sanction on the government of Eritrea should seriously assume the practical realities on the ground, while also emphasizing the fact that Eritrea has continued its disruptive role in the region and was not showing any signs of change.

Ethiopia conspires with Sudan to unleash Eritrean Jihadists....


In the past two weeks during the visit of the new Prime Minister of the Federal Republic of Ethiopia to the Sudan, both governments have reportedly agreed “to extend support to what they termed as Eritrea’s armed opposition groups in order to enable them to properly execute their objectives”.

Heavy weights and the emerging nationalists  in the Eritrean opposition rally behind Eritrean government's position
on the border issue...sanctions..

 

"...the UN sanctions on Eritrea should not have been imposed at all. They were definitely imposed for the wrong reasons. Considerations of justice and fairness, the principles enshrined in the UN Charter and International Customary Law render the UN sanctions against Eritrea singular, unjustified and unwarranted based on the circumstances that led to their imposition..." Ambassador Andeberhan Welde Gergis

 

COMMENTARY – THE CASE FOR LIFTING THE SANCTIONS ON ERITREA

1.      The Sanctions on Eritrea

The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) imposed sanctions on Eritrea on 23 December 2009 [Resolution 1907 (2009)] on account of (1) the Eritrean government’s refusal to acknowledge and engage to address the border dispute with Djibouti and (2) allegations of the government’s support to Somalia’s Harakat al-Shabaab al-Mujahideen.

The sanctions provided for (1) an arms embargo on Eritrea as well as (2) travel ban and (3) asset freeze on targeted individuals. Beyond the imposition of an arms embargo on the country, the list of about a dozen selected individuals (link) on the travel ban and asset freeze contains no name of a known Eritrean government official.

The targeted individuals are listed in an earlier resolution, Resolution 1844 (2008), which imposes sanctions on individuals or entities designated as engaging in or providing support to acts that threaten peace, security and stability in Somalia. None of the targeted individuals is identified as Eritrean. Thus, the UN sanctions on Eritrea essentially comprise an arms embargo.

Press Statement
 

In the past two weeks during the visit of the new Prime Minister of the Federal Republic of Ethiopia to the Sudan, both governments have reportedly agreed “to extend support to what they termed as Eritrea’s armed opposition groups in order to enable them to properly execute their objectives”.  

To this end, both governments “have agreed to provide these groups with material support inside their respective borders as well as to extend to them requisite facilities for enhancing their free and unhindered, cross-border, movements in the two countries”.  

To ensure the effective coordination of these operations, the Ethiopian side has appointed the Consul in its Embassy in Khartoum, a certain Mr. Burhan, who has also been acting as the principal supervisor of the operations of Qatari funded Jihadist groups.  The Sudan has similarly appointed General Hamid Al-Mustafa, as a counterpart for the Ethiopian appointee, for the coordination task. 

This scheme, launched at a time of intense and pretentious PR campaigns, is in essence, neither new nor surprising.  We hardly need to emphasize its futility.

.... it cannot be emphasized enough that Eritrea is on the right side of the law; and hence it cannot be held directly responsible for the impasse. Semere T. Habtemariam

Will Donald Yamamoto finish what Susan Rice, Richard Holbrooke and Anthony Lake started?

Semere T. Habtemariam

At the end of April 2018, Donald Yamamoto visited Eritrea, Djibouti and Ethiopia.He is the highest-ranking US diplomat to visit Eritrea in over a decade. Many things have changed in the region, but the one thing that had stayed the same is: the no-war-no-peace stalemate between Eritrea and Ethiopia. With the visible military presence of China in the region, the US finds the normalization of relations between Eritrea and Ethiopia important enough to embark on a new initiative. Yamamoto’s mission was to convey to both governments this new shift in US policy. Reliable sources have confirmed that he had succeeded in obtaining initial support to his initiative. Both governments have agreed in principle while reaffirming their 16-year old positions: demarcate first and then dialogue vs. dialogue first and then demarcate.
