Putin has ‘it’ – Larry King

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on October 6, 2011

Russian PM Vladimir Putin was one of the last guests that broadcasting legend Larry King interviewed during the course of his extraordinary career – and Larry told RT he was very impressed with the force of Putin’s personality and charisma.

“I had an affinity with him”, King told RT. “You try to get that with a lot of guests, but I really had it with him…he has qualities that have nothing to do with politics…they change a room.”

The legendary TV host also said that he was not in the least surprised to hear Putin will be running for president in the 2012 election. “There are certain lives that you can’t leave”, said King, “and the political life is one of those. When you talk to a political leader who is either out of office, or not in a position of great power, you miss that power – it’s an aphrodisiac.” Read the rest of this entry »

So what is it that we don’t know about now? There’s an enormous hidden world out there that we don’t know about. It exists there right now.” Read the rest of this entry »

Let’s give Afghans more authority – Russia’s special rep in Afghanistan

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on March 28, 2011

Military operations alone will not lead to positive results, and it is important for the international community to help Afghans create a strong and stable state, Russian President’s special representative in Afghanistan, Zamir Kabulov told RT.

For Russia it is important to explain to NATO that a stable Afghanistan is in Russia’s interests, but NATO’s Cold War mentality prevents it from listening to good advice on its operations in the region.

Zamir Kabulov believes Russia failed to persuade Western partners that a mere military operation in Afghanistan not supported by actions in other spheres will not bring any tangible results.

It is very important for the international community, including Russia, to participate in a meaningful process of helping Afghans to build a strong and stable country, which should be based, however, on a plan drafted by the Afghans themselves.
