OEA Calls on President Obama to lift 5-year old Unjust Sanctions

December 23, 2014
President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

Dear Mr. President,

As members of the Organization of Eritrean Americans (OEA), we would like to call upon your administration to lift the two UN Security Council Resolutions 1907 (2009) and 2023 (2011) that the US helped impose sanctions on the innocent people of Eritrea. It is time to do the right thing.

These two resolutions were politically motivated; they were based on naked lies and fabricated stories that came out of Ethiopia, Eritrea’s archenemy. A year ago, former Assistant Secretary of State for Africa and veteran Ambassador Herman Cohen with many years of experience and intimate knowledge of the region, said it well: “Those of us who know Eritrea well, understand that the Eritrean leadership fears Islamic militancy as much as any other country in the Horn of Africa region.”
