  • NATO To Observe Closely Bulgaria's Military Modernisation - Novinite.com - Sofia News Agency about 5 hours ago
    • NATO To Observe Closely Bulgaria's Military Modernisation

           
      Politics » DEFENSE | October 13, 2014, Monday // 10:19
    • NATO will closely observe Bulgaria's modernisation of military equipment, as planned in the “Vision 2020” strategic paper, prepared by the caretaker Government, reports Sega daily.

       

      According to the report, quoting a last week meeting between caretaker Defence Minister Velizar Shalamanov and Heinrich Brauss, Assistant Secretary General for Defence Policy and Planning, could also start an infringement procedure, if the next government fails to follow the plan.

       

      Unofficial information claims that Brauss said that if next government decides not to follow the plan, Brussels would start a penalty procedure against Bulgaria and would limit the country's access to NATO investment programmes.

       

      This would mean that if, for example, Bulgaria wants to buy 3D radars, as described in the “Vision 2020plan, it will not have access to NATO investment programmes.

       

      During the industrial forum in Sofia, of which Brauss was a guest, he praised the “Vision 2020plan and described it as “ambitious”.

       

      “We, in Brussels, are ready to help in realising this plan,” Brauss said. “We considered the “Vision 2020plan carefully – it can contribute to the transformation of Bulgaria's armed forces within NATO and EU. All allies must adapt. Without this, there is a real risk for us to be outwitted by our enemies.”

      President Obama's four-day trip to Africa for the sixth Global Entrepreneurship summit came to a close this week when he addressed African Union delegates in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The mass media has focused on the symbolism of President Obama being the first U.S. president to speak before the African Union. But in his controversial speech, Obama addressed corruption, democracy, and civil rights, yet there was still a lot left unsaid.

      Now joining us to speak about the U.S. role in Africa is Maurice Carney. He's the executive director and co-founder of Friends of the Congo, and he joins us now from Washington, DC. Thanks for being with us, Maurice.

    • President Barack Obama will make history this week by becoming the first sitting U.S. president to visit the Ethiopian headquarters of the African Union – the continental body playing an increasingly prominent role in shaping Africa’s future.

        

      "The African Union is very fortunate to have a very good dialogue with the U.S.,” AU Commission Deputy Chairman Erastus Mwencha told VOA in Addis Ababa.

        

      "The visit of President Obama would elevate it … and we hope from this visit that the key issues that we deal with together with the United States (are) in the area of peace and security, in the area of energy, in the area of agriculture," Mwencha said.

  • Obama excludes Mugabe from AU meeting - NewsDay Zimbabwe about 7 hours ago
    • Obama excludes Mugabe from AU meeting

      AFRICAN Union (AU) and Sadc chairman President Robert Mugabe will not be among several African leaders scheduled to meet visiting United States President Barack Obama at the AU headquarters in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia,on Tuesday, his spokesperson George Charamba has said.

    • BY MOSES MATENGA

       

      Charamba said Mugabe was unmoved by Obama’s visit to the AU headquarters, describing the event as just “a visit by any other visitor”.

       

      “The chairman does not run the AU centre. Obama has come to Ethiopia for an official visit and to address the staff there.

       

      There are many dignitaries who come to the AU headquarters and you can imagine if all come wanting the President’s input,” Charamba said.

       

      “It’s the Head of State of another country. If you are afraid of him, we are not because he is just a Head of State who visits Africa and the AU headquarters by virtue of his ancestry. Madam (Nkosazana) Dhlamini-Zuma (AU Commission chairperson) is big enough to receive him.”

       

      Charamba said when it was said Obama would address the 54-member bloc, Zimbabwe did not represent his audience.

    • Obama will today address the AU bloc on several issues affecting Africa.

       

      “AU is not an organ run by Zimbabwe. It does not belong to Zimbabwe. If you want to know who is attending, call the AU offices,” he said.

       

      He said Mugabe and other AU leaders would only receive the report of his visit in January at the AU summit.

       

      “There will be a report on the summit in January where we will get a briefing on the visitor who is called Barack Obama ‘who we received and went back home happy’. . . He did not come to visit Mugabe. He went to Ethiopia and asked to visit the HQ. I did not see you writing that Mugabe snubs Obama when he went for the Ebola summit (in New York),” Charamba said.
