Down to real business

Dick Cheney 3 days ago --

All peoples are best served when market principles are allowed to work; when there is transparency of information; when energy export routes are diverse and reliable.

Dick Cheney's recent meetings --

On energy, the U.S. has stressed pipeline construction that bypasses Russia. In Azerbaijan, Cheney met privately with William Schrader, president of London-based BP Plc's Azerbaijan venture, and Robert Dastmalchi, San Ramon, California-based Chevron Corp.'s Azerbaijan country manager, according to the vice president's office. A spokeswoman for BP in Baku declined to comment on the talks. Chevron couldn't be reached for comment late yesterday.

Cheney met today in Cernobbio with Peter Sutherland, British Petroleum Plc and Goldman Sachs International board chairman. No aides were present at the meeting and Cheney spokeswoman Megan Mitchell declined to comment on the talks.
