Biden is optimistic about the future of Caucasus

2009-10-27 14:24

"What's happening, from my perspective, is that people in the [South Caucasus] region are beginning to understand that their self-interest lies in greater cooperation now. Not out of love and affection, but out of necessity and opportunity," he said - Asbarez.


"This is going to be a very difficult period," continued the vice president. "It is fraught with danger, but I would argue it's fraught with more opportunity than danger. And I see more positive things happening than negative things happening."

Biden believes the West is now facing both immense dangers and immense opportunities in settling the conflicts in Caucasus. He admitted Russia is an influential side, favoring peacekeeping, but noted there are things the USA won't sacrifice.

"I think everyone's seized with the consequence of not making progress in that region of the world. Therefore, because so many are focused on it, I'm more hopeful than I am pessimistic," he said.
