UK's Hague Still Hot About Embassy in Iran, Cites Kenya But Not Mali or DRC

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, September 23 -- The attack on the Westgate Mall in Nairobi was the first issue raised by UK foreign minister William Hague when he spoke to the press on Monday.

 And the first of three questions, from Sky News, was about Somalia. Hague said the UK is working for security there -- no word of the disputed oil contract by a former UK leader -- then took two questions on Iran.

  BBC Persian, also called on by Cathy Ashton, raised one; it was on reviving embassies between Tehran and London. A promised or alluded to stakeout by Iran's foreign minister Zarif did not, in fact, take place.

But sources tell Inner City Press that Zarif was not apologetic enough for Hague's taste about the assault on the UK embassy in Tehran, and that why Hague came out and raised it.

Hague did not raise or take questions on the Democratic Republic of the Congo, or Mali. These issue are left to colonial power France. And what does Hague say about Somaliland? We'll try to ask: he has another stakeout (and should address DRC and the Minova rapes at that time.) Watch this site.
