The Benghazi incident that took the lives of four Americans has resulted in the resignation of four Department of State (DoS) officials and has cost Susan E. Rice, the current US Ambassador to the United Nations, her chance to head the DoS. Her potential nomination set off a barrage of commentary as those opposed to her nomination were countered by those who supported her. Several reports were written about the “radio-active” candidate and there were some who actually questioned her credentials and there were others who claimed that her “entire career has been based less on solid accomplishment than on her networking skills.”

The Euro-Mediterranean dialogue is relaunched from Rome: the northern and southern Mediterranean countries more closely united to face new challenges
ROME, Italy, February 14, 2012/African Press Organization (APO)/ — The Italian government and Minister Terzi sent a message expressing Italy’s recognition of Algeria’s role in uniting the two shores of the Mediterranean through the Minister’s Special Envoy for the Countries of the Mediterranean and the Arab Spring, Maurizio Massari, who made another stop in Algeria on a tour that has already taken him to Egypt, Morocco and Turkey. Massari met in Algiers with representatives of the government (who included the foreign minister) and of the President of the Republic’s office and of the media. Among the themes discussed, and on which Massari found himself in full accord with his interlocutors, was the importance of the 5+5 dialogue forum to be held in Rome on 20 February, and its major potential for sector enlargement, a process on which Rome and Algiers fully agree. Italy expressed its willingness to help Algeria in many sectors, not least in light of its strategic choice to strengthen relations with the European Union, which include security and free trade. On this latter point a complex negotiation has been under way between Europe and Algeria for some time now, on which Massari said, “Algeria demands must be heard”. The excellent status of relations between Italy and Algeria will be confirmed at the next bilateral summit to be held in Algeria within the year (the last was held in 2007 in Alghero). A partnership that could be further reinforced, Massari pointed out, through broader structuring, with a special focus on the Italian development model for small and medium sized enterprises.
