Dyshime mbi shlyerjen e borxheve
Dokumente të reja duket se tregojnë që një grup vendesh evropiane po përpiqen të zbusin premtimet mbi anullimin e borxheve për të cilat u ra dakord në takimin e G8-ës në Gleneagles të Skocisë. Shlyerja e borxheve përbënte një pjesë të rëndësishme të paketës të ofruar nga Tony Blair në luftën kundër varfërisë në Afrikë. David Loyn njofton.
Debt, aid and trade - there was some progress at Gleneagles on all three solutions for Africa's problems. But now it appears that there is a concerted attempt by around thirty countries, led by Belgium, to offer less on debt relief than the G8 promised.
According to the leaks, Belgium is demanding that developing countries should have to jump through a new set of hoops in order to have their interest payments not written off but rather paid by the developed world for the term of their loan - new conditions attached.
Now if this were passed, the proposal would mean that countries which were the most corruptly governed would be saddled with the worst debt repayments. America and Britain oppose this amendment but some other European countries, in particular Germany, have always been lukewarm on debt relief and might be swayed.
