Let me drop a name. The name for the day is Radoslaw Sikorski.
Polands Foreign Minister is making the rounds in the US, on the arm of Hilary Rodham Clinton.
Just what have Rad and Hil been up to?! Reaffirming their firm committment to one another?
Indeed, they have. Both countries have agreed to resume a strategic dialogue. They made the announcement together after talks in Washington, yesterday.
Some interesting statements, that may be relevant to the recent plane crash that wiped out the previous government.
Clinton and Sikorski also discussed the conflict in Afghanistan and new areas of U.S.-Polish cooperation on energy and climate.
Sikorski said if American companies exploring energy resources in Poland "strike it lucky," it would enhance the energy security of Poland and Europe and forge new investment links between Poland and the United States.
That is kind of surprising.
I thought Russia and Poland had just struck some kind of energy pipeline deal?
Now Sikorski is talking 'energy security' with the US?
A delegation led by Sikorski is on a week-long U.S. tour since Tuesday with the focus on renewing the Polish-American Strategic Dialogue.
Sikorski is also scheduled to meet with U.S. National Security Advisor James Jones, representatives of the U.S. Congress, and Washington think tanks.
Then Sikorski announced that Clinton is visiting Poland as a member of the elite group of countries which will meet in Krakow during July 2-4 to re-launch the Community of Democracies.
Joint Statement on the US and Polish Bilateral Strategic Dialogue
Hilary, is such a gal pal to Sikorski, she is promising to look in Polish Visas.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has promised to look into the issue of Poles requiring visas to enter the United States after a meeting with Polish Foreign Minister Radosław Sikorski.
Earlier this week, European Parliament President Jerzy Buzek criticised the U.S. visa policy, which divides EU member states into "better" and "worse" countries according to which ones are included in the Visa Waiver Program (VWP).
Poland is the only member of the Schengen zone that is not included in the VWP.
The official criteria to enter the VWP is based on the ratio of rejected visa applications to total visa applications, which must fall under 10 percent. At the moment, the figure is at 13 percent. If the number of visas granted were to increase, Poland would soon be within range of entry into the VWP.Don't worry Hilary is on the job!
Wait, there is more.. Missiles on Sikorski's Washington Agenda
“Such weapons are placed around Poland’s borders so it would be both in the interest of Poland and NATO to reduce the nuclear arsenal. Reducing tactical weapons would be the next step after reducing strategic weapons,” Sikorski said after the meeting.
Missile reduction, is most certainly not what they are speaking of.
Some additional news has the IMF popping up!
The Polish central bank insists the country has no need to ask the Fund for a replacement for the current facilityUber thought provoking statement from linked article, I am going to bold it for you to read and contemplate-
The government takes a different view. Earlier this week Dominik Radziwill, deputy finance minister, said an extension of the FCL was called for because of the turmoil caused by the recent downgrades of Greece, Portugal and Spain
The issue had been a sore point between the ministry and the bank, but the death of Slawomir Skrzyepk, the former central bank governor, in the April 10 air crash, has taken some heat out of the argument.
The death of the former central bank governor has taken some heat out of the argument???
Who would benefit from Poland taking on more IMF loans? Not Poland, of course. For their would be austerity measures put in place. Hmmmmm........
I find all this interesting, because the main stream media has been giving us the news for the past couple of weeks that Russia and Poland could get closer and Russia could benefit from this tragedy, etc., etc. Then Sikorski is in the US two timing with Hilary?
And, the IMF is largely hooked in with the the US branch of the political banking cartel.
And another picture emerges entirely.
