Country Footnotes

Eritrea UN Security Council Resolution 1907 of 23 December 2009 established an arms embargo on Eritrea. UNSCR 2060 (2012) introduced exemptions to the arms embargo for temporary export of protective clothing to Eritrea by United Nations personnel, representatives of the media and humanitarian and development workers and associated personnel for their personal use only; and for the export of non-lethal military equipment intended solely for humanitarian or protective use, as approved in advance by the relevant Sanctions Committee. Following the adoption of the UN arms embargo, the EU adopted Council Decision 2010/127/CFSP on 1 March 2010 and Council Regulation (EU) No 667/2010. These measures were subsequently amended in 2010 by Council Decision 2010/414/CFSP. All exports for this destination were approved in accordance with the sanctions in place.
