Who is Prince Caspian part 3

"BRUSSELS, October 7, 2007 (RFE/RL) -- European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana will tour Central Asia next week to discuss energy cooperation, combating the drug trade, and other issues.
The October 8-10 visit will take Solana to Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Kazakhstan.
Solana's visit will look inject new life into the European Union's relations with Central Asia after the relative lull that has followed the adoption of the EU's first ever strategy for the region in June.
"The best way to signal that the region is important for us and that we want to deepen this strategic dialogue is to pay a visit," Solana's spokeswoman Christina Gallach told RFE/RL. " And [Solana] has chosen [the] three countries for several reasons -- he already saw the ambassador of Uzbekistan in New York, so that is a point, and he has been in contact, well, regularly with the Tajik president. Therefore we think it's a good selection because the timeline is not long."

"The EU is not a transient player in the South Caucasus.
It has become and will remain an increasingly important stakeholder in the success of regional stability, security and development agendas."
from the just released article on EU and its ENP in the Caucasian area:

November 1, 2007
The EU’s New Frontier
By Oksana Antonenko
Europe Takes a New Interest in the South Caucasus

It's the ENP making the EU going south and east.

Daniel 8,9: "And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land."

No wish to be contrary, Farmer, but is it the ENP, or Solana, that is making the EU go east and south?

P.S. Pres. Musharraf has declared a "state of emergency" in Pakistan.

"In Brussels, spokesperson for EU Foreign Policy Chief Javier Solana regretted the Islamabad decision.

“We regret the decision to declare the state of emergency.

“We recognise Pakistan’s current difficult political and security situation. We express support for Pakistan’s struggle against extremism.

“We urge a solution to be found within the constitution. We condemn any provisions of the state of emergency that are unconstitutional. In general, the rule of law must be respected.

The scheduled election must take place on the date that has been arranged. The democratic process should not be interrupted any further,” the spokesperson said."

conerning FP: just took over the comment from Candy at CCs blog:
"The web hosting service began moving all the data to new servers this weekend. Apparently they encountered some problems, but expect everything to be up later today. The other sites who are down are apparently using the same web hosting service. :)"
