“We’ve also made it clear to these Kurdish forces as well that they should not seek to create autonomous, semi-autonomous zones, that they should not seek to retain the territory that they liberate,” Toner said on Monday.”(…) rather that they should make sure it’s returned to whatever civilian authorities there are and able to — so that all displaced people can return there. This is — but we also recognize the fact that these [Kurds] are effective fighting forces and that they are willing to take on and dislodge Daesh [ISIS],” Toner added.

„VIEL LOB FÜR GRIECHENLAND IN BRÜSSEL!“ (FAZ TITEL 25 Mai 2016)
….. no wonder!: Schließlich ist die griechische Staatsschuld noch erheblich gewachsen + die Produktivität deutlich gesunken. Aber der BRE XIT droht – und da hilft nur Simulation. Gleiches gilt für die EU/Brüssel Botschaften an Spanien + Portugal: Keine Überprüfung, keine Sanktionen – alles verschoben bis Juli, wo sich wieder keine Regierung in Spanien bilden lassen wird. Und polnische Verletzungen der Brüsseler Statuten? Timmermanns: „Wir setzen auf Dialog“.
