Eritrea: denial of the repressions in Asmara, President Afewerki explains the trafficking of migrants
After the last hoaxes on Eritrea were undermined, President Isaias Afewerki explained how a "regime change" strategy is being implemented with regard to his country, which also resorts to the exploitation of the phenomenon of migration and trafficking in human beings.
After almost two months, the German television ZDF has corrected its decidedly very critical positions on Eritrea. In an article, then withdrawn, he had spoken of the small protest in Asmara, capital of Eritrea, inflating it to capacity and presenting it as a clear demonstration of the dictatorial nature of the country. The service of ZDF has been withdrawn rather than corrected, and this is not a casual or minor aspect: it means that it was false, and not just inaccurate.
For example, the main source of information contained in the service was not an eerie "opposition group" Eritrean, but rather a terrorist group recognized as such at international level, supported and financed by Ethiopia and who had previously issued statements then systematically revealed themselves to be mendacious.
The small protest that took place in Asmara and resolved virtually alone was certainly no more nourished, numerically speaking, than others occurred in many European countries so far, and even more serious, in the political sense and not. It has not been repressed in the blood like many media, beginning with ZDF but not only, they told, and did not have as its purpose the change of the regime.
Clarified this story, Eritrea went to counterattack, through the mouth of its own president Isaias Afewerki. According to the Eritrean president, who issued a substantial and meaningful interview, "external forces" would act on illegal emigration and trafficking in human beings in order to exploit young Eritreans. The interview, released to the local broadcasters Eri-Tv and Radio Dimtsi Hafash, had a wide resonance throughout the region.
The ultimate goal is that of a "regime change", a "regime change", and this is precisely why Eritrea has always urged the UN to start independent investigations to clarify this situation.Afewerki then explained how illegal emigration, fomented from the outside, also steals important human resources and not to the countries of the Horn of Africa.
Already in his New Year speech to the nation Afewerki had anticipated part of the contents of this interview. Even then his speech, extremely calm in tone but strong in content, had a strong echo, well beyond East Africa.
