WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
block the push to strengthen existing sanctions and to lift the sanctions that were imposed on Eritrea
We are outraged that your ambassador at the UN is pushing the Security Council to place more sanctions against the people of Eritrea. This latest call for sanctions, like the one in 2009 doesn’t serve US national interest and it will not bring peace to the war ravaged Horn of Africa.
We believe the solution is on constructive engagement and not in scapegoating or isolating Eritrea. That is why we strongly urge your administration block the push to strengthen existing sanctions and to lift the sanctions that were imposed on this young nation. We also urge you to push Ethiopia to implement the final and binding demarcation decision of the Eritrea-Ethiopia Boundary Commission (EEBC) without preconditions or further delay.
