President Isaias Sends Message to Foreign Leaders

Asmara, 1 January 2017 - President Isaias Afwerki sent a message to several Heads of State and Government on the advent of the New Year once again drawing their attention to continued injustices meted to Eritrea. The President underlined that such indefensible acts not only contravene fundamental tenets of international law and morality but are also fraught with perilous threats to regional peace and security.

Recalling that 14 years have elapsed since the adoption of the Eritrea-Ethiopia Boundary Commission ruling on the border delimitation and demarcation, the President pointed out that sovereign Eritrean territories still remain under occupation. In this connection, he called on the leaders to ensure the respect of the rule of law.

President Isaias went on to underline that the Eritrean people have been wronged several times at the hands of the UN in the past and as such they deserve redress and reparations for the wrongs done and not continued and unjustified punishment.

In regard to the illegal and unfair sanctions against Eritrea, the President noted that the unjustifiable sanctions were passed deceitfully on fabricated charges which had no basis on law or facts. President Isaias stressed that the main purpose of the sanctions was to deflect international attention from the occupation of sovereign Eritrean territories and thereby corner Eritrea from advocating its legitimate rights.

President Isaias underlined that the continued wrong doings against the Eritrean people, coupled with the occupation of sovereign Eritrean territories constitute harm beyond reparation and called on the UN Security Council to rectify its errors without further delay.

Posting Guidelines

To enhance the value of Dehai mailing list and protect the common interest defined in its mission and objectives, the following posting rules are recommended to guide subscribers:

All postings must reflect the stated mission of Dehai and be consistent with its objectives. Otherwise, private e-mail should be used.

All subscribers posting should introduce themselves to the mailing list the first time and identify themselves by name in subsequent postings.

English is the conventional language of the network. Other languages can be used, however it is highly recommended that posters include an abstract or a complete English translation. Idiomatic expressions can be translated at the discretion of the poster. The use of multiple languages is intended to reflect the linguistic diversity of Eritrea and expression from expatriate Eritreans in different countries. Ultimately, it is hoped that all subscribers should be able to participate comfortably and productively.

Considerations should be made that all mailings to the Dehai mailing list can be subject to corporate and institutional audits.

Postings should primarily address issues and not only critique or embarrass a subscriber or group of subscribers.

Subscribers should conform to existing copyright laws, post advertsing-free information, provide factual representations in terms of sources, document references, quotes, dates and places to substantiate opinions instead of submitting hasty generalizations. A good practice is to explicitly state one's assumptions and interpretations, and define ambiguous terms.

Subscribers should grant the benefit of the doubt when attempting to figure out motivations -- if any -- behind postings. Before ex- pressing criticisms, subscribers are encouraged to explore privately e-mailed, diplomatic requests for clarifications. Such an approach should preempt misunderstandings, stop communication barriers from building up and provide respondents with an opportunity to explain their postings.

Diversity within the Dehai mailing list entails that subscribers' be sensitive to different value/belief systems and point of views. A reasoned posting should factor extant diversity and aim beyond issues at hand toward better understanding and respect.
