The United Nations Security Council has unanimously adopted Resolution 2444 to lift sanctions on Eritrea. The historic and significant developments in country that have witnessed during the past year have dramatically changed the dynamics in the region, and opened a new chapter of peace and cooperation.
You will recall that sanctions were imposed against the country in 2009, following the assumptions that the country gave support to the Somali militants that caused mayhem at that time, and have continued to do so.
This decision was made after the United Nations Security Council decided that the country has advanced in its reforms and policies and also considered pleas from Ethiopia's prime minister, Abiy Ahmed who has continued to serve as an emissary for countries in the region.
Although Eritrea denied the accusations of their involvements with the Somali rebels, they have lived with the sanctions since 2009 which placed among other things an arms embargo on the country.
It is believed that the votes of the council is like to be anonymous as only the decision would be announced.
Another major reason for the consideration is the reconciliation between Eritrea and Djibouti which many are aware was made possible by Ethiopia's Abiy Ahmed.
