Eritrea: China, Russia, and the United States

 The Hudson Institute published in July 2023 a policy memo titled "Eritrea's Growing Ties with China and Russia Highlight America's Inadequate Approach in East Africa" by Joshua Meservey.  

The author argues that China and Russia have recently increased their engagement with Eritrea while American influence in the region is slipping.  Eritrea's increasingly close relations with Beijing and Moscow likely mean that the situation in the Horn of Africa will soon get even worse for Washington.
