Serbia has a new best friend

From Blic:

"President of the Democratic Republic of Congo Joseph Kabila said yesterday during talks with Serbia Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremic that he ‘shall not recognize Kosovo as long as he lives’.  It is interesting that Kabila’s father lived one year in Belgrade as a student before leaving to the USSR. Jeremic who is in Africa as of Monday said that the goal of his visit to Congo was tightening of traditional friendship and political and economic cooperation between the two countries". 

The current geographic state of play with recognition of Kosovo looks like this:

Blue is formal recognition, yellow is pending.  Odd that there is so little Islamic solidarity at work.

They probably see a wider picture where enclaves can get power.... like Kurdistan

Islamic solidarity hasn't been much in evidence in some other places either - like when it comes to putting their hands in their pockets to help the refugees in the Palestinian Territories who seem, unaccountably, to have been stuck in bombsites for the past 60 years or so - with a fresh influx a little over 40 years ago.

Lots of shouting, of course, but not much in the way of cash on the table.

A little (folding variety) solidarity would have seen the poor buggers rehoused decades ago, but that wouldn't be good for the politics, would it?

Apologies for the slight digression.

HtS - Good point.

FT - Also a good point. The post '48 refugees going into Israel were housed very quickly. It always rather annoys me that what are rather ugly concrete towns under the control of the PA are called 'refugee camps'. Not much canvas in evidence.

Salaam/Shalom etc.

Never mind about that! What we want to know is your opinion about Dubai World. Will we all be ruined?
Will it hasten the replacement of Kapitalism by some vague nonsense, as desired by the Green Party?
More importantly, will it lead to even more closures of exotic Croydon restaurants (e.g. the South African Indian)?

Vendredi, Croydon.
