More about:

Bloggers from various countries have been invited by the Dutch government to take part in the celebrations of the 100th anniversary of the  Peace Palace in The Hague. The bloggers spent the first day at RNW where they prepared a blog on the theme of peace and justice.
 
Carlos Alberto Pérez Benítez from Cuba, editor of the blog La Chiringa, arrived three days late after being blocked from leaving his country. Once he arrived, he, together with the other bloggers, were able to speak with the Dutch Foreign Minister, Frans Timmermans, in the Peace Palace, which is home to the International Court of Justice. They spoke about Timmermans’ upcoming visit to Cuba, the changes taking place on the island, bilateral relations, and bloggers’ role in guaranteeing freedom of expression.

Well, Timmermans is a die-hard communist also and wants to transform The Netherlands into a Cuban/North-Korean look-alike with the help of unelected corrupted eurocrats in Brussels. The slogan of Timmermans' Labour Party is: "Fair Sharing", but they only seem to take more money from the working class' pockets to fill their own and to facilitate all their socialistic hobbies. So be careful who you invite to your country and in case you may like him, feel free to keep him.

There was no "tackling" here. Wrong word.

Very impressed with this man! Seems very real in his interaction and very knowledgeable. I think a positive approach to diplomacy is just what the situation in Cuba requires.
