U.S. State Department issues Travel Warning for Eritrea

Tigrai Online, Ethiopian News, Sept. 3, 2016

U.S. State Department issues Travel Warning for Eritrea the warning said there is tensions between Eritrea and the neighboring countries of Djibouti and Ethiopia


The U.S. Department of State continues to warn U.S. citizens of the risks of travel to Eritrea due to the unpredictable security situation along Eritrea’s borders and restrictions imposed by local authorities on travel within the country. All foreign nationals, including U.S. government employees, must obtain permits to travel outside of the capital Asmara. This restriction limits the ability of the U.S. Embassy to provide consular/emergency services anywhere outside of Asmara. This replaces the Travel Warning dated May 6, 2015. Avoid travel along all border regions. In June 2016, fighting in the Ethiopia-Eritrea border region reportedly caused several deaths.  Continued political and military tensions between Eritrea and the neighboring countries of Djibouti and Ethiopia pose the threat of possible renewed conflict. Due to regional sensitivities, the State Department also recommends against travel to the border region with Sudan.

Admin’s Remark:

As far as the information coming out from the Eritrean government and its supporters, everything is rosy and peaceful in Eritrea. Then what prompted the US State Department to issue the above travel warning against Eritrea on August 31, 2016? There has to be something the United States government knows about the border situation or they might have seen some unusual military movements in the border between Ethiopia and Eritrea.

The Eritrean regime’s supporters are celebrating at what is happening in Amhara region in Ethiopia. Time and again some Eritreans declared the TPLF is dead and they are warning the people of Tigrai will be in danger, because the Eritrean government is supporting the “Amhara and Oromo”. We are not sure what kind of support they are talking about, but Keleta Kidane and other supporters should worry about their own house before they worry about the people of Tigrai. Thank you, but we the people of Tigrai can and will take care of ourselves. We have been doing a great job of defending ourselves and what is ours for millenniums. If you have a little wisdom you should have thought about the long term consequences of your actions against the people of Tigrai at times like this. The day of regret will not be that far for people like those of you at Meskereme and other regime supporter websites.
