Just an update to remind you that in some parts of the world, people still believe in diplomacy.
Javier Solana, the EU’s foreign policy chief, said the talks were useful and had been conducted in a good atmosphere, although no huge breakthrough was immediately apparent.
“We have tried to understand each other better and that, without any doubt, is a very fundamental part of the resolution of the problem,” Mr Solana added. “We have not made miracles, but have tried to move the dossier forward a little bit.”
I’ll take it. After all, slow-moving diplomacy worked before, just recently. The United States could learn something here. Even when we put down the sabers, the best we’ve been able to do is this.
