Negroponte's visit

In a previous post, I said I’d like to be a fly on the wall when Negroponte and President Correa met. Turns out I would’ve been one really bored fly, and that’s for the better. It was a proper, polite, and seemingly dull exchange of views, and as such barely makes the radar of the U.S. media. They agreed on the need to extend the ATPDEA. Correa laid out his opposition to issues like a Ecuador-U.S. free trade agreement, and in response Negroponte listened and did no sermonizing.

Oh wait, this is that thing, what’s it called? Yeah, diplomacy. After all these years I’d forgotten.
