ABSTRACT
This article presents information about foreign relations of Eritrea. Eritrea is a member of the African Union and of the Common Market of Eastern and Southern Africa. It has had close relations with the United States, Italy and several other European nations which have become important aid donors. Eritrea's relations with its neighbors other than Djibouti also are somewhat strained. Although a territorial dispute with Yemen over the Haynish Islands was settled by international arbitration, tensions over traditional fishing rights with Yemen resurfaced in 2002. Relations with Sudan also were colored by occasional incidents involving the extremist group, Eritrean Islamic Jihad, which the Eritrean Government believes is supported by the National Islamic Front government in Khartoum.
