Eritreans in diaspora reaffirm steadfastness, heighten rebuff
Noting that the latest US instigated illegal and unjust sanctions resolution against Eritrea is part and parcel of the continued acts of hostility dating back to the 1950s, Eritreans in different parts of the world once again reaffirmed steadfastness and heighten rebuff.
The nationals from Australia, USA, Denmark, Saudi Arabia, Sweden and others said that sanction would only have really damaging impact on subservient quarters and not on the Eritrean people who strive for progress on the basis of self-reliance. They further asserted that they would as ever exert unremitting endeavours for the success of the development drive in the Homeland.
Sanctions imposed against Eritrea targets country's economic development
A Russian newspaper, Pravda, has said that the Security Council resolution of further "sanctions" against Africa's fastest growing economy, targeting Eritrea with its projected five years of double digit growth rate, should come as no surprise.
As regards the first version of the sanctions against Eritrea, the paper wrote: Thanks to the relentless efforts of Eritrean nationals the "sanctions" passed against Eritrea on Monday (5 December) is a toothless one which can not bite.
As regards allegations against Eritrea supporting (Somali Islamist) Al-Shabab, Prevada quoting WikiLeaks: a senior US diplomat in the Horn of Africa, US ambassador to Ethiopia, Donald Yamamoto, told his bosses that the allegations have no truth at all.
