Kouchner Finds Time

Bernard Kouchner is no longer too busy to meet the Dalai Lama. He will do so on Saturday, along with Carla Bruni. Evidently the situation in Georgia no longer requires his full attention, since the Russians have begun to settle in. France's position regarding South Ossetia is now as crystal-clear as its position regarding Tibet: both will be exploited for their publicity potential, but nothing will be done to alter the regional rapport des forces. Ainsi va le monde. (For previous comment, see here.)
