Clinton to Attend Protocols Ceremony in Zurich


WASHINGTON (Reuters)—US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will fly to Zurich on Saturday to attend a ceremony where Armenia and Turkey are expected to sign accords to normalize relations, the State Department said.

Armenia and Turkey are expected to sign agreements to establish diplomatic ties and open their border.

Clinton will attend the ceremony before heading off on a European tour that includes stops in Britain, Ireland and Russia.

“We have long supported this process and she’s going to demonstrate and underscore our support,” a senior State Department official told reporters, referring to the signing ceremony.

European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner are also expected to attend, he said.

    Hillary is such a brownnoser. Is she now vying for a nobel prize as well because corrupt officials decided to sell their country out? Can she handle being without one now that obama got his?
    Do everyone a favor and get over yourself.

    Hillary Clinton is already jealous that Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize.

    She thinks SHE should have gotten it for pressuring Sargsian and other parties to agree to the protocols.

    And look, if your husband had cheated on you with a ton (literally) of gross-looking women and some chubby White House intern, wouldn’t YOU think you deserved some sort of consolation prize?

    If it’s any consolation to us Armenians: While Hillary is at the protocol signing in Switzerland, she willl be wondering “Who is Bill sleeping with right now?” Why it’s enough to drive her to have an affair with Amb. Marie Yovanovitch. Or Serge.
