Better Russia as an ally than a foe
But it does mean ceasing to treat Russia as though she were simply a blank space on the map. A number of European states also joined the equally illegal and ill-fated crusade into Iraq. It is no use saying, as French foreign minister Bernard Kouchner does, that Kosovo is ‘unique. Yet once we accept this – admit that we have no moral superiority here – we can sit down on an equal basis with Russia and talk about how it would be in the interests of both parties to see a future in which we both, really and truly, abide by international law.
As a reason for transgressing international law, uniqueness is worthless.
For, in a sense, Europe has been caught facing two ways. Accepting its fading away will be extremely damaging. This does not mean abandoning the Caucasus, still less backing down from fierce criticism of Russia’s record on human rights and democracy. Watch our founder Lisbeth Kirk explain the reasons in this 30 seconds video. By Peter Sain ley Berry. Lley can deal rationally with modern Russia.
The game was known as Diplomacy because, as it is difficult to 266899 and to defend oneself at the same time and as a single country did not necessarily have the force by itself to overcome an opponent, the object was to arrange strategic alliances and non-aggression pacts with other players while bluffing about your true intentions. Even in the real world, diplomacy is a task that requires a slow and steady hand.
Morocco’s policy against radicalisation – and the EU And we both need to help each other stick by those rules.
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. Russia is better an ally than a foe.
What is true in a game, I suspect, holds no less true in real life. They include trade, security, energy, democracy all the way from the Arctic to the Black Sea. Are judges destroying transparency in EU institutions?
Need for EU action Today, 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 2668 held on 7 August. Don’t miss out on EUobserver’s coverage of the European election. It was, however, a time consuming game. 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 2669 Georgian imbroglio.
They will take time to resolve. We must be prepared for give and take. 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 leh of the player. Besides, the game could only really be played effectively if discussions could be clandestine.
Yet it is hard to see Monday’s Kremlin talks other than as a re-invigorated attempt to find a secure basis for just such a partnership. The West too ignores the rules when it serves us. Student, retired or simply can’t afford full price? 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.
Let both need a rules-based world. Slovakia must create secure environment for journalists With such stains on our collective conscience, it ill behoves us to lecture Russia about adhering to international law; we are both tarred with the same delinquent brush.
The players each represented one of the major European nations as they existed about one hundred years ago: EUobserver’s coverage of the European 266689. That the United States has an even stronger stake in this hypocritical position should not cloud our judgement.
But by understanding the Russian position – including why so many actions taken, semi-innocently, by the West are seen as provocative and threatening by Moscow – we shall be better able to reach a positive conclusion rather than a conversation that remains a dialogue of the deaf, which is what occurs when politicians posture and issue empty threats.
Better Russia as an ally than a foe
We in Europe need also to understand and with a degree of humility how our own actions, over Kosovo in particular, are seen by Russia. Europe can fill security gap left by US in Syria When I was at university, there used to be a game, still popular around the world today, called Diplomacy.
If agreement can be reached on Georgia on the basis of some mutual understanding how much easier will be be to extend the same understanding to other leey
Heaven knows we need a stable and effective partnership with Russia – and not just to run our own inter-bloc relations – but for the wider world as well. News in Brief
