Key Note Address by President Isaias Afwerki

at the 7th Congress of the National Confederation of Eritrean Workers (NCEW)
Asmara, 27 March 2017

Distinguished Participants of this Congress,
Honourable Invited Guests,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

Allow me first to express, at this auspicious moment, my warmest congratulations to all members of the National Confederation of Eritrean Workers (NCEW).

This Congress is taking place, if only by happenstance, at a time when Eritrea has just celebrated the 25th anniversary of its (post-independence) nation building journey.  As such, and even as we pay tribute to the long and proud history of struggle of Eritrean workers, it is imperative and timely to ask what the NCEW has achieved in this past quarter of a century.  Where does the NCEW want to go and how will it proceed in the years ahead?

Statement of the Delegation of the State of Eritrea

Statement of the Delegation of the State of Eritrea

to the 34th Session of the UNHRC in Response to the Oral Update of the Special Rapporteur.


Mr. President,

My delegation does not wish to waste the time of this august body to indulge in acrimonious exchanges with the Special Rapporteur.  The selective bias inherent in the so-called testimonies that she brandishes; the lack of professionalism in her overall approach; the political bias and agenda that have marred her recycled reports are these days too well known and acknowledged by a growing number of governments and neutral bodies. In this respect, we see no dividend in dwelling on her statement.

Last year alone, over 112,000 Eritreans in the Diaspora visited their homeland as part and parcel of their routine vacations and also to celebrate the country’s 25th Independence Anniversary.  Read more
