Si un reminder: la Bucuresti, in noiembrie 2010

O intalnire amicala, un pranz simpatic, glumite.  Bashar al Assad la Bucuresti.  Si ma uitam la televizor fara sa aud vreun comentariu despre prietnia prea stransa dintre Traian Basescu si Bashar al Assad.


Assad despre revolutiile din lumea araba

Interviu cu presedintele sirian Bashar al Assad, 2 februarie 2010, in Wall Street Journal despre valul de revolutii din lumea araba.


Cea mai interesanta parte a interviului:
