Need for EU action Today, But whatever the length, it is surely important that we on the European side understand Russia’s legitimate fears and aspirations which, of course, extend far beyond the Caucasus.
For, in a sense, Europe has been caught facing two ways. Student, retired or simply can’t afford full price?
Are judges destroying transparency in EU institutions? Don’t miss out on EUobserver’s coverage 266689 the European election.
That the United States has an even stronger stake in this hypocritical position should not cloud our judgement. Of course, to understand does not necessarily mean to agree, still less to cave in. Opinion Better Russia as an ally than a foe Russia has not been the only power to have flouted international law.
Diplomacy by megaphone, though fashionable, is counterproductive What used to strike me as significant, however, was the characteristics of the nation being played did not reflect, as they would in any other game, the characteristics of the player. Yet it is 266899 to see Monday’s Kremlin talks other than as a re-invigorated attempt to find a secure basis for just such a partnership.
France, Britain, Germany, Italy, Russia and so forth; their mythical armies and fleets no aeroplanes then battled for territory and power on a large board representing the map of Europe and the seas around it.
The players each represented one of the major European nations as they existed about one hundred years ago: On Thursday December 6the constitutional affairs key of the European Parliament will finally have a crucial vote on changes to rules of procedure that lsy MEPs. I am sure that President Sarkozy of France, as president of the European Council, will bear this in mind as he steps on to the Moscow tarmac on Monday accompanied by Mr Barroso and Mr Solana, to discuss with Mr Putin and President Medvedev how best we move on from the Georgian imbroglio.
Ostensibly it has broken off the current round of partnership talks with Russia, designed to set a new framework for co-operation, until the Russians withdraw their troops, now occupying parts of Georgia, to the positions they held on 7 August. But it does mean ceasing to treat Russia as though she were simply a blank space on the oey. Slovakia must create secure environment for journalists Morocco’s policy against radicalisation – and the EU When I was at university, there used to be a game, still popular around the world today, called Diplomacy.
News in Brief What used to strike me as significant, however, was the characteristics of the nation being played did not reflect, as they would in any other game, the characteristics of the player. It is no use saying, as French foreign minister Bernard Kouchner does, that Kosovo is lley. Transparency remains an ,ey instrument to remedy the present crisis of trust in the institutions.
One does wonder, however, how much is likely to be achieved in a leh short day. Diplomacy by megaphone, though fashionable, is counterproductive. By Peter Sain ley Berry.
Better Russia as an ally than a foe
EUobserver’s coverage of the European election. We must be prepared for give and take. We both need a rules-based world. We accepted that international law should be broken when first we bombed Kosovo and Serbia and then again when a majority of member states recognised Kosovo’s illegal independence.
Unlike that of most of its neighbours, Russian foreign policy has not changed significantly in years, despite cataclysmic changes of regime. Russia is better an ally 266899 a foe. It’s success – or failure – will largely depend on the EPP.
Yet once we lsy this – admit that we have no moral superiority here – we can sit down on an equal basis with Russia and talk about lsy it would be in the interests of both parties to see a future in which we both, really and truly, abide by international law.

There is room for cautious optimism in Slovakia, but the chilling effects of Jan Kuciak’s murder may be felt for some time and continued international scrutiny is important.
The West too leyy the rules when it serves us. Europe needs Russian help in the Security Council on issues such as Iran, militant Islam, the Middle East, climate change, nuclear proliferation and so forth. Letter Malta responds to Venice Commission criticism If agreement can be reached on Georgia 2689 the basis of some mutual understanding how much easier will be be to extend the same understanding to other issues? Russia is not the old Soviet Union bent on ideological domination by force.
As a reason for transgressing international law, uniqueness is worthless. We Europeans like to pat ourselves on the back and tell the world how we have replaced ‘war’ with ‘law.
They include trade, security, energy, democracy all the way from the Arctic to the Black Sea. And we both need to help each other stick by those rules. It would be naive of us therefore if we were to pretend that Russian foreign policy is likely to change now, rooted as it is in the country’s geography and history.
