    1. Eri taking this relationship to a hire level is a sign that all is not well in Eritrea. I explained it in detail but my comment was deleted by admin/tesfanews or someone close to the government that does not like the truth.

      GOD help the Eritrean People

  1. This is a good developement. As we all know, Russia and especially Putin are not happy about the adventurous and lethal US/EU foreign policy. In Libya, he was not happy. They illegally extended the mandate given them and toppled a soveriegn govt. In Syria, they´re trying the same thing and Russia said no at the UN. It´s great with a bi-oplar world than only the US acting as a well fed and armed bully in school!

  2. ::US would like to normalize relations with President Issaise Afewerki of Eritrea::

    Reliable sources from Asmara are leaking information about US administration’s desire to improve its relations with President Issaise Afwerki of Eritrea. After the death of Meles Zenawi of Ethiopia, US sees PIA of Eritrea as a formidable buffer against the expansion of Islamic fundamentalism in the region. Ambassador Yamamato and otters, who are key players in Horn African affairs in the state department, are convinced that in post Meles Zenawi, US needs to revise its horn of Africa policy and make efforts to mend its severed diplomatic relations with horn’s strong man PIA of Africa. The sources reveal that working to get rid of PIA would be counterproductive to US’s long term national interest in the horn.

  3. ::US would like to normalize relations with President Issaise Afewerki of Eritrea::

    US opted to remain silent about the recent incident at MOI in Eritrea believing that it was instigated by Islamic elements within the PIA’s circle. US is in precarious position in regard to Ethiopia in post Melees era. Its concern on future developments in Ethiopia exacerbated by rising Islamic opposition and TPLF’s inability to hold itself together. The US administration is very well aware of the internal power strife within TPLF bigwigs and it believes that Ethiopia will sooner or later face the specter of disintegration and working against Eritrea’s strong man would only pave the way for fundamentalists to further destabilize the horn. Israel is believed to be the main actor behind the curtain in convincing US administration to revise its hostile policy toward president of Eritrea. Israel wouldn’t like to see the Red sea converted into an “Arab Lake” and would defintely like to see a strong Christian leadership in Eritrea that could protect its interest in the strategic Red Sea chokehold known as Bable Mendeb!

  4. ::US would like to normalize relations with President Issaise Afewerki of Eritrea::

    In the mean time, US is asking PIA to introduce mild changes in the country to tame rising frustration locally. The sources also reveal that PIA who is very well aware of the inner workings of CIA wouldn’t have any problem adapting to the “change of hearts” from state department.
