Congressman's Call for US Military Partnership with Eritrea tyrant rejected

05 August 2017

Last month of July 2017, the United States House of Representatives, Congress, rejected to no one's surprise on the spot, rightly so, Republican Congressman Mr. Dana Rohrebacher's call for 'US Military Partnership with Eritrea tyrant, reported yesterday. "A Republican congressman says he believes it is time for the U.S. to reach out to Eritrea and forge a partnership to fight terrorism. U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher of California submitted an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act that would encourage the U.S. secretary of defense to negotiate with his Eritrean counterpart to cooperate on the war on terror, security in the Red Sea region, confronting Iranian proxies in Yemen and other U.S. security priorities.

The amendment was rejected, but Rohrabacher said he may try to push for cooperation with either a future amendment or standalone bill." The VOA report said.

Yet, inexplicably, VOA Tigrigna Language broadcast yesterday that quoted said 'voanews report' failed to mention the said amendment was rejected!

By the way, Eritrea does not have Minister/secretary of Defense!
