Obama in Europe: A friendly visit?

Obama in Europe: A friendly visit? | News in english | Scoop.it

David Cronin at Al Jazeera on President Barack Obama’s trip to Europe. “The European Union's chief representatives will be eager to cuddle up for photographs - perhaps even selfies - with Barack Obama when he pays his first presidential visit to Brussels this week. Amid all the backslapping, the "friction" of the recent past will be politely overlooked. Why let a beautiful friendship be spoiled by a littlesnooping on Angela Merkel's phone calls or an American diplomat's use of an expletive to insist the EU keeps its nose out of Ukraine?” Cronin writes. “If Obama's trade plans materialise, he will have done even more than his predecessor to cosset big business. Surely, it's time that we, the 99 percent of Europeans, finally see Obama for what he is and that we denounce our own leaders for being in cahoots with him.”

Margarito Cruz's curator insight, December 10, 2015 10:57 PM

Chief diplomat is the role being done here because the President is trying to manage different relationships amound different countries. I didnt realize that the president spent so much time away from home because of how busy they are. I agree with this because its always good to build good relationships with other countries so we dont have the things happening more happen to oftern like it is right now with all these attacks.

5MatthewHenderson's curator insight, December 11, 2015 10:16 AM

Chief Diplomat. President Obama went to Brussels to discuss foreign affairs with the Angela Merkel's. I did not realize how close her and President Obama seem to be. I don't agree with these actions Obama is taking because she is from another country.

African Regional Integration and the Fight Against Illicit Financial Flows

African Regional Integration and the Fight Against Illicit Financial Flows | News in english | Scoop.it
The African Development Bank estimates that illicit financial flows have drained in excess of a trillion dollars from Africa since 1980. These flows undermine the tax base, damage political institutions and exacerbate inequality. With major momentum behind global counter-measures, there are clear opportunities for progress at the regional level – including through stronger information exchange and cooperation, tax base harmonization and innovative uses of trade data.
