UN SECURITY COUNCIL LIFTS SANCTIONS ON ERITREA AND RENEWS ARMS EMBARGO AGAINST SOMALIA

On 14th November, the UN announced it would lift the arms embargo, travel ban, assets freeze and targeted sanctions previously imposed on Eritrea, while simultaneously renewing its sanctions imposed against neighbouring Somalia.  UN SCR 2444 (2018) terminated those measures imposed on Eritrea by its Resolutions 1907 (2009), 2023 (2011), 2060 (2012) and 2111 (2013).

With the arms embargo on Somalia renewed, the UN also renewed the sanction exemptions for deliveries of weapons, ammunition or military equipment or the provision of advice, assistance or training intended solely for the development of the Security Forces of the Federal Government of Somalia to provide security for the Somali people.
