United States begins consular service in #Asmara

USA-Eritrea Flag Pins

“Eritrea, which is the only African country to reject USAID, has made a number of attempts in recent months to normalize relations with the U.S. Whether these positive efforts are reciprocated remains to be seen.”

In what could be interpreted as a sign of thaw in relations, the Obama administration began consular service in Eritrea for the first time since 2010. This step towards partial diplomatic relations comes amid the United Kingdom announcing it will work to ease sanctions against Eritrea, a position likely taken with approval from Washington.

The U.S. embassy in Asmara has also suggested its administration would like to send an ambassador to Eritrea but informed Madote that “the Government of the State of Eritrea has refused to date to accept any ambassador from the United States.”
