    Since when did the Eritrean govt start entertaining religious hardliners in such level of deplomatic mission? Thought the govt was against religious fanatics. I doubt though if the eritrean govt would play these cards well. At a time when the whole world is condemning russian aggressive military actions against Ukraine, Eritrea’s attempts to provide naval base for russia might blow in its face, given the fact the Americans are already based in Djibouti might create an ugly tension and more political isolation of eritrea by the west.
