ENF welcomes a genuine change in Eritrea on conditions:- the Eritrean National Front is ready to welcome change in Eritrea. In what so ever form and content, the on going political turmoil in Eritrea should rest on a meaningful change. The change all Eritreans aspire, however, should fulfil the following stipulations.
†1. Sovereignty First: - the expected change in Eritrea should never compromise Eritrean sovereignty. Its territorial and social integrity should be intact. No minus and plus.†
2.† Peaceful Transition:- we know Eritrea is in Africa. Power shift in Africa, as usual and always, is based on fist and barrel of guns. Itís too much to have a bloody transition for Eritrea and its people who have paid the highest pain and soul in the thirty more years of liberation struggle. We, therefore, call the stakeholders to handle the transitional issue with wisdom and utmost care.
3. Peopleís safety:- the ongoing process of change in Eritrea should put peopleís safety first and foremost. As a national front on field, ENF could not welcome any chaos that chases its citizens out. Nor that suffocates and creates uncertainty. Thus far, peopleís safety should come to our sense.
4. Diplomacy for mutual benefit and respect:- Any diplomatic activity or deal should rest on mutual interest of respective nations. So and as stated, as a national front, ENF disregards any diplomatic move that compromise our national interest.†
5. No intervention in our internal affairs:- Any foreign interference, be it verbal or written, that affects our freedom and national interest is considered as violation of Eritrean sovereignty and will affect our mutual diplomacy with any country. Therefore, the Eritrean National Front (ENF) calls all diplomatic circles, mini regional economic powers and international super powers to refrain from indulging in our national affair. Itís totally unacceptable to influence, derail, and twist the ongoing process of change to their interest for itís totally against the interest of Eritreans. Itís equivalent as abrogating the hard won Eritrean liberation for which we paid light and black colored Eritrean daughters and sons. ENF abhors colonization and systematic annexation of Eritrea in any form and content.†
