US President Barack Obama didn’t attend the march in Paris, held yesterday in protest against the killing of the journalists of the satirical weekly “Charlie Hebdo”. The Secretary John Kerry also didn’t attend, who, in turn, together with Macedonian Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski, was a guest at the Entrepreneurship Summit “Vibrant Gudzherat” in India.
US media indicate that it’s astonishing that their representative on the march was only the US ambassador in Paris, Jane Hartley.
With a photograph of the leaders (including Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras), “CNN” today openly asks “Where was Obama?”.
In Paris, but at a security summit to combat terrorism, was the US Attorney Eric Holder.
The march was attended by British Prime Minister David Cameron, Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
From the countries of the region, the President of Kosovo, Atifete Jahjaga, Prime Minister of Albania and Turkey, Edi Rama and Ahmet Davutoglu, Bosnian Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Zlatko Lagumdzija, and the Speaker of the Serbian Parliament, Maja Gojkovik participated in the march.
Also, among the present were the Prime Minister of Ireland Enda Kenny, Portuguese Prime Minister Pedro Coelho Paso, Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka, Slovakian Prime Minister Robert Fico, Latvian Prime Minister Lajmdota Staujuma, Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, Croatian Prime Minister Zoran Milanovik and others.
