France, Britain dismiss calls to renew relations with Syria's Assad

PARIS (Reuters) - France and Britain dismissed on Friday any suggestion of restoring relations with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, saying this would likely end all hope of a political transition and push moderates into the arms of radical Islamist groups. With the rise of Islamic State insurgents, some European |Union member states are critical of the position in Paris and London and say it might be time to re-establish communication with Damascus given that a four-year-old revolt has failed to overthrow Assad, diplomats say. #United States #China #Technology #France #Italy #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico #author #opinion

Georgia says Russia bent on 'creeping annexation' of breakaway regions

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Russia is moving ahead with the "creeping annexation" of two breakaway Georgian regions as part of an aggressive strategy to broaden its influence in the region, Georgia's foreign minister said on Thursday. In talks with EU and NATO officials in Brussels this week, Tamar Beruchashvili said she had underlined Georgia's concern about agreements Moscow has signed deepening integration with the Georgian regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. "This is an extremely dangerous development not only for Georgia's security, but we believe it's very dangerous for wider European security, particularly considering the war in Ukraine," she told Reuters in an interview. #facebook #United States #India #Brazil #Technology #France #markets #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom
