It is now clear that the malevolent Eritrean fascist dictator, Issayas Afeworki, has done a secret deal with several foreign governments, including Arab nations, for the establishment of military bases in Eritrea so that they can operate freely in attacking neighbouring countries from sovereign Eritrean territory.
For some years now, Afeworki has been very busy creating enemies for Eritrea and endangering the lives of its people and this latest move is obviously in line with his destructive long-planned anti-Eritrean stance.
It is therefore very important for Eritreans to understand clearly that the stationing of foreign forces, or the establishment of military bases, on Eritrean soil is a betrayal of both the spirit and the highly cherished declaration of principles of the Eritrean revolution.
This is because, first and foremost, the existence of foreign military bases on Eritrean soil undermines Eritrean security and is a great and direct threat to the integrity and sovereignty of the host country.
Eritreans must therefore unequivocally demand the immediate closure of all foreign military bases and the expulsion of foreign forces, primarily the aggressive and chauvinist Ethiopian forces arrayed against the Tigrayan people on Eritrean soil.
