British prime-minister Tony Blair has departed from Moscow. In the airport, he kept himself from communication with the press. Therefore, the politician’s destination is unknown. What was the subject of conversations between Putin and Blair? One can only judge from the information of official sources. However, bit earlier, an official of British prime minister’s office said to Russian information agencies Tony Blair was delighted by the meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. It is not clear enough what caused this delight. The fact is that at the meeting, the question was about fight against terrorism. To be honest, this subject could excite delight only in a not very sane person. According to an official of British prime-minister’s office, the results of the meeting show “the epoch of the cold war is left behind." Without any doubt, today's Russia plays “a very important role in international community’s fight against terrorism.” Some sources report that Blair is intending to visit Pakistan to discuss details of the imminent anti-terrorist operation in Afghanistan.
