Eritrea’s president congratulates Bush on re-election
George W. Bush President of The United States of America
November 2004 - I wish to extend to you, on behalf of the people and government
of Eritrea and on my own behalf, warmest congratulations for your re-election
as president of the United States.
We are reassured
by your re-election as it will add more vigour to the war against international
terrorism which has assumed a critical dimension at this period. At the same
time, we hope that your re-election will re-focus the attention and efforts of
the United States government to promote peace and stability in our region. In
particular, we hope that the United States government will use its influence to
ensure the implementation of the Eritrea-Ethiopia Boundary Commission decision
without further delay and thereby enhance regional peace and security.
President of the State of Eritrea, 3 November 2004
