Mr WordPress on Hello world!
Photo I took from the Ivanishvili rally that took place on May 26, 2012. The rally seems to have been a success.
A new report published by NDI suggests that President Mikheil Saakashvili has now fully fallen from grace in his standing among the Georgian people. With the central powers of the presidency being transferred to the prime minister, Bidzina Ivanishvilli’s Georgian Dream coalition has not only consolidated power but has also won favor with the emerging youth culture. Ivanishvilli’s son known by his rap alias “Bera”, swooned a crowd of thousands during the 26th of May protest against Saakashvili’s regime.
Countries included in Secretary of State John Kerry’s visit are, Egypt, France, Germany, Italy, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates. So far the importance of the trip is seen as a sort of solidarity with the Syrian Rebels. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/25/john-kerry-syria_n_2759567.html Both the US and Britain want to arm the rebels.
Also of interest is his trip to Turkey, where he will discuss the issue of the disputed territory of Nagorno Karabakh currently in Armenian hands. http://news.am/eng/news/142664.html
Some accuse the new Secretary of State avoiding supposed key US allies like Israel, Poland, and other countries in Central (Not Eastern) Europe. http://blog.heritage.org/2013/02/25/kerrys-first-overseas-trip-its-not-where-hes-going-its-where-hes-not-going/
Very good news. Georgian Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili’s foreign policy will hopefully be remarkably different then his predecessor.
