PR dla Zagranicy
Seen as an attempt to boost the bloc’s morale, the Nobel Peace Prize for Europe has left many observers doubting whether the recognition was timely.
In this week’s edition of our European magazine:
- European heads of diplomacy hold talks with opposition in war-torn Syria.
- European heads of diplomacy raise prospects of sealing the accession deal with Ukraine in 2013.
- Poland's foreign minister requests assistance from Brussels in bringing the Smolensk disaster plane wreck back to Poland, over two and a half years since the disaster.
And in our weekly report: The European Union received the award for promoting peace, democracy and human rights in Europe for over six decades. The European bloc has contributed greatly to restoring healthy ties between nations, Germany and France in particular, said Nobel Committee Chairman Thorbjørn Jagland during his prize-giving speech at Oslo’s City Hall on Monday.
Seen as an attempt to boost the bloc’s morale, the Nobel Peace Prize for Europe has left many observers doubting whether the recognition was timely, as the ongoing financial crisis, the largest in EU’s history, is wreaking havoc across the bloc, sparking divisions among its member states.
